YANKS READY TO TAKE THE "BRONX" OUT OF "BRONX BOMBERS"
Published September 25, 1995
Although the Yankees say no formal decision has been made to move, the chances of them staying in the South Bronx "appear dim," according to Matthew Purdy of the N.Y. TIMES. Government officials say that the team appears "eager" to be in a position of deciding between a "glitzy" stadium in Manhattan and a "convenient lucrative" ball park in New Jersey. Purdy reports that an official of the Guliani Administration said, "It had become clear to all those involved that if the Yankees had their druthers, they would prefer a stadium on the West Side" (N.Y. TIMES, 9/24). Columnist William Rhoden writes, "In an effort to ring out the best possible deal, Steinbrenner is using urban decay --not the erosion of his marketing department -- to justify the team's low numbers" (N.Y. TIMES, 9/23).
