DISNEY STILL LURKING IN THE OUTFIELD ON ANGELS SALE?
Published March 20, 1996
Former MLB Commissioner and Angels suitor Peter Ueberroth told the L.A. TIMES the Walt Disney Co. is still in discussions about buying the Angels despite the fact the company's exclusive rights to buy the team have ended. Ueberroth, who heads a group interested in buying the team, said they have been "made aware that (the Angels, Disney, and Anaheim) are continuing discussions, and we're choosing not to step forward until these discussion have concluded." But Disney Sports Enterprises spokesperson Bill Robertson was "adamant" that talks between Disney and the city had ended. Anaheim City Manager James Ruth said city officials met for over three hours yesterday, and, while they were "not negotiating with anybody," he did not "rule out the possibility that talks with Disney might be revived" (Hernandez & DiGiovanna, L.A. TIMES, 3/20). Tony Tavares, Disney Sports Enterprises President, said talks on the Angels were "over" ("SportsCenter," ESPN, 3/19).
