THE SALE OF THE PIRATES ALSO A HOT TOPIC IN L.A.
Published January 18, 1996
The sale of the Pirates to Kevin McClatchy will not be ratified by MLB owners meeting this week in L.A., but NL President Leonard Coleman said that should not be taken as a sign that McClatchy's bid is collapsing, according to the WASHINGTON POST. Coleman said owners yesterday sent McClatchy a list outlining what he needs to accomplish for approval. Coleman also said the ownership committee's remaining work can be done via conference call, and Pirates officials say they hope the McClatchy deal can be completed next week (Mark Maske, WASHINGTON POST, 1/18).
