NO GLASS WARFARE IN K.C.: CEO WON'T RE-ENTER BID PROCESS
Published October 14, 1997
Royals Chair David Glass reiterated that he "will not resurface in the bidding process" for the Royals, despite Frank Oddo's decision not to pursue the team and as George Brett's "interest continues to waver," according to Jeffrey Flanagan of the K.C. STAR. Glass said he was "disappointed" in Oddo's decision, but there was "no way" he would get back in the process (K.C. STAR, 10/11). Local Royals bidder Jerry Green was profiled by Diane Stafford in Sunday's K.C. STAR. Green, Chair of K.C.-based Union Bank, is backed by a "much, much larger out-of-town investor" who Green says "was approved" by MLB for a previous franchise bid. Stafford wrote that Green primarily wants "to save the team" for K.C. and that he "would be happy if the Brett group wants to combine their bid with his" (K.C. STAR, 10/12).
