POTENTIAL CARDINALS OWNERSHIP GROUP IN FINAL NEGOTIATIONS
Published December 22, 1995
One potential investor says a group led by several St. Louis businessmen is in final negotiations to buy the Cardinals, according to the ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH. The group includes Southwest Bank Chair Andrew Baur, Hunter Engineering President Stephen Brauer, and William DeWitt, Jr. of Cincinnati, whose father once owned the St. Louis Browns and then the Cincinnati Reds. DeWitt owned 15% of the Reds until '68, was a partner in the Orioles, and is now a part owner in the Rangers. Baur said they are "close to a deal" and that the team would "absolutely" stay in St. Louis (O'Neil & Hummel, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 12/22).
