RUMORS OF YANKEES MOVE TO NJ "BLOWN WAY OUT OF PROPORTION"
Published September 22, 1995
Yankees Owner George Steinbrenner "insists" he has made no decision where his team will play when his lease expires at Yankee Stadium, according to today's N.Y. POST. He did say, however, that he wants to finalize plans "by this time next year." Regarding rumors that the Yankees and NJ were "closer to some serious negotiating," Steinbrenner said that "has been blown way out of proportion." NJSEA Public Affairs Dir John Samerjan: "There have been suggestions that in the last two weeks we have formed The Plan with a capital 'T' and a capital 'P,' and it just does not exist." Joel Sherman writes, "All this is the latest subtle -- but very real -- pressure tactic that Steinbrenner is using in this high-stakes poker game" (N.Y POST, 9/22).
