TWINS' BELL SAYS AGREEMENT WITH BEAVER COULD COME THURSDAY
Published October 1, 1997
"Even as a deal to sell the Twins appears imminent, advocates for a new ballpark are suggesting" to MN Gov. Arne Carlson that he "delay calling a special legislative session so they can round up more votes," a spokesperson for Carlson said Tuesday, according to Whereatt & Weiner of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. But Carlson is "refusing" any delay and his staff is working with legislative leaders to decide on a day during the week of October 20 to hold a special session. Meanwhile, Twins President Jerry Bell said that an agreement to sell the Twins to NC businessman Don Beaver "is close and could be nailed down as soon as Thursday." Bell "denied reports that Beaver would be in the Twin Cities today to sign a deal." Twins Owner Carl Pohlad will be out of town today (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 10/1). Beaver, on Tuesday, said, "We haven't submitted anything written yet" (AP/CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 10/1).
