MLB LOOKS INTO ALLEGATIONS SCHOTT FALSIFIED CAR SALES
Published January 9, 1997
MLB has begun an investigation into allegations that Reds Owner Marge Schott used the names of seven Reds employees to falsify cars sales, according to Geoff Hobson in the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER. NL President Leonard Coleman: "If these allegations are true, they would be very serious. Warranted action would follow. But ...she hasn't even had the chance to respond to GM's allegations, so let's be fair." Coleman said MLB's investigation will continue despite the fact that Schott is selling the dealership, but would not say whether using the names of Reds employees violated the agreement Schott signed when she had to relinquish control of the team (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 1/9).
