STALLIONS TO HEAR HOUSTON OFFER; SPEROS CLOSE TO A DECISION
Published January 4, 1996
Stallions Owner Jim Speros will in Houston tomorrow for a meeting with Astrodome management, city officials and local businessmen about a deal to bring the team there next season, according to the Baltimore SUN. Speros said a decision is near, adding, "Houston has shown quite a bit of interest." The Stallions' season-ticket drive in Baltimore, which aimed for 20,000 season-tickets to be sold, has sold only 12,000 as of Tuesday. The drive was scheduled to end tomorrow, but Speros has extended it until Monday. Speros, who also expects offers from Richmond and PA's Lehigh Valley, said a final decision will not be made until next week. Speros noted there is still a chance the team will stay in Baltimore, but he added Houston has an advantage over Richmond and PA in that it has a 59,969-seat facility ready for play (Kevin Eck, Baltimore SUN, 1/4).
