MARINERS OWNERS MAKE TRIP TO THE MOUND TO MEET WITH GOVERNOR
Published October 3, 1995
A group representing Mariners ownership met with WA state political leaders yesterday in Gov. Mike Lowry's office to emphasize that they will put the team up for sale if there is no new stadium plan in place by the end of the month. Michael Paulson reports in this morning's SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER the team also stressed its willingness to contribute $45M toward the cost of a new ballpark and that they plan to sign a 20-year lease and share any profits with the community. Lowry still hopes to call a special session of the legislature to deal with the stadium issue next week, but has made no progress toward a possible bill (SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, 10/3). A key lawmaker told the TACOMA NEWS TRIBUNE that a loss by the team yesterday "could have taken some of the momentum away" from the stadium effort. The Mariners won their first division title over the Angels (Turner & Callaghan, TACOMA NEWS TRIBUNE, 10/3).
