HE'S ODDO-THERE: K.C. EXEC DROPS OUT RACE FOR ROYALS
Published October 10, 1997
K.C. business exec Frank Oddo and his group of local investors have "dropped out of the bidding" for the Royals, according to Charles Crumpley of the K.C. STAR. Oddo said yesterday that his group was interested in buying the team six months ago, but the Royals were not interested in selling then and members of his group "have invested their money elsewhere since then." Oddo's departure leaves two publicly known groups interested in making a bid: one led by K.C. banker and car dealer Jerry Green, and a second led by George and Bobby Brett and Bill Pereira Jr. Royals President Mike Herman said that other unnamed groups also have expressed interest in making a bid (K.C. STAR, 10/10).
