ASTROS OWNER MCLANE SETS THE RECORD STRAIGHT: NO MLB SUIT
Published November 10, 1995
Astros Owner Drayton McLane said he is examining every possible way to keep the team in Houston and flatly denied a Houston Chronicle report he was intending to sue MLB and place the franchise in bankruptcy. McLane: "Never, in my 34 years of business, have I ever personally initiated a lawsuit. That is not the way to handle disputes." He has a press conference scheduled for 11:00am CST today to announce his plans for the '96 season (Astros). WHAT'LL HE SAY: In Houston, John William writes it is still "unclear" whether or not McLane will try to move the team to Northern VA (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 11/10). In DC, Maske & Lipton writes McLane will announce he is going to remain in Houston for '96, staying on a "one-year trial basis" because he doesn't think he has the votes to approve the move (WASHINGTON POST, 11/10). That is echoed by broadcast reports in Houston this morning (SportsTicker).
