ALL IN THE FAMILY FOR THE MINNESOTA POHLADS
Published March 20, 1996
The sons of Twins Owner Carl Pohlad are, in fact, interested in owning the team, diminishing speculation that the Twins would be sold, according to this morning's Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. Jim Souhan reports that, contrary to public opinion, Pohlad's sons -- Bob, Jim and "to a lesser extent," Bill -- have recently taken a more active role with the team. According to some Twins execs, Bob Pohlad, in particular, has become a "key figure," taking on increasing responsibility especially in the Twins' pursuit of a new stadium. Though Carl Pohlad denies rumors of a possible sale, maintaining, "We're not even thinking about anything than a new stadium," Souhan notes other owners have made similar claims before selling (STAR-TRIBUNE, 3/19).
