TWINS/NC TALKS HEAT UP AS POHLAD MEETS WITH THE BEAVER
Published September 18, 1997
Moving into a "serious talking stage," Twins Owner Carl Pohlad met twice Wednesday with NC businessman Don Beaver, who wants to bring the team to the Carolinas, according to Jay Weiner of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. Pohlad: "We'll see him again this morning. We're just talking, but we're in the serious talking stage." In Atlanta at the MLB owners meetings, Twins President Jerry Bell said that he, Pohlad, Beaver and Twins financial consultant Bob Starkey met for two hours "to discuss Beaver's interest in buying the team." Beaver confirmed the sessions, but said, "nothing material has happened yet." Beaver "declined to say if he has made an offer" for the team, but Bell and Pohlad said none has been made (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 9/18).
