STADIUM NOTES: NEW JERSEY PROPOSAL FOR NEW YANKEE STADIUM
Published September 15, 1995
The state of NJ has drawn up a proposal to build a 50,000- seat stadium for the Yankees at the Meadowlands, according to the N.Y. TIMES. Because NJ officials do not want to be seen as trying to "steal" the team, they will not make the proposal public until the Yankees say they are interested in NJ (Murray Chass, N.Y. TIMES, 9/15)....The S.F. Board of Supervisors have had a "lukewarm" reaction to the Candlestick Park name change and could mount a bid to have it revoked (S.F. EXAMINER, 9/15)....Eric Lipton notes in the WASHINGTON POST that contrary to past announcements, a MLB stadium in Northern VA would require "tens of millions of dollars" in public support (WASHINGTON POST, 9/15).
