BEESTON SPEAKS ON THE FUTURE OF BLUE JAY OWNERSHIP
Published February 29, 1996
Blue Jays President Paul Beeston said yesterday the team's new owner, Belgian-based Interbrew, has yet to talk to any buyers, but that a "number of people" have expressed interest. Beeston: "They are not down the road with anybody, but they're certainly down the road to the point where they want to do something with it sooner rather than later." In Toronto, Richard Griffin writes to "look for a 10-member consortium of hand-picked and equal partners," with Interbrew holding on to 10% with Beeston controlling their share and continuing on as general partner (TORONTO STAR, 2/29). Beeston said the team will sell in excess of 22,000 season tickets (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 2/29).
