BALLPARK REFERENDUMS: SAN FRANCISCO VOTES TODAY
Published March 26, 1996
Low turnout is expected statewide in today's CA primary, with San Francisco voters also deciding whether to give the Giants approval to build a new downtown ballpark (Susan Yoachum, S.F. CHRONICLE, 3/26). LIONS ENCOURAGED: Lions officials believe last week's voter approval of a new Tiger Stadium "could pave the way" for the NFL team's return to Detroit, according to this morning's DETROIT NEWS. Lions COO Chuck Schmidt sees last Tuesday's "overwhelming" vote in favor of a new ballpark as a sign the city might pay for a new football stadium as well. Schmidt: "Things are heating up for us." The team's Silverdome lease with the city of Pontiac expires in 2004, while that city has hired a law firm to "protect its interests." Pontiac Stadium Authority Chair Bill McIntyre: "The Lions are free to talk to Detroit about whatever they want to do after 2004" (DETROIT NEWS, 3/26).
