EFFORT TO BRING MLB TO NC GAINS FAMILIAR LOCAL FACE
Published May 29, 1996
John Connaughton, the UNCC economist whose economic impact studies assisted in efforts to bring the Hornets and Panthers to NC, has been hired by N.C. Baseball Committee Inc. -- the group attempting to bring an MLB club to Greensboro, NC, according to the CHARLOTTE BUSINESS JOURNAL. The organization, which has raised over $600,000 since January to pay for consulting fees and studies, has also received the help of Jefferson-Pilot Corp. CEO David Stonecipher and Wachovia Bank President Walter McDowell. The ownership group is headed by Don Beaver, who owns four minor- league clubs, as well as a share of the Pirates (Erik Spanberg, CHARLOTTE BUSINESS JOURNAL, 5/27).
