LIKE LITTLE ANGELS -- DISNEY, ANAHEIM, TEAM KEEPING QUIET
Published March 21, 1996
While officials from Disney continue to insist that their deal to buy controlling interest of the Angels is dead, Anaheim city officials voted Tuesday to refuse to comment on the deal. Teri Sforza reports the team has delayed any sale negotiations with other parties "until Disney's star falls completely out of the sky." Meanwhile, it is believed that if negotiations with other possible buyers should begin, Peter Ueberroth will get the "first crack" (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 3/21). Ueberroth commented Tuesday that negotiations are "ongoing" between Anaheim and Disney, but Angels President Richard Brown said he was unaware of such talks. Brown: "I assume he knows something I don't know, but I've been several steps removed from the negotiations" (Ross Newhan, L.A. TIMES, 3/21).
