HE'S NO DOCTOR DOOM! MCLANE MAKES PRESENCE AT GROUNDBREAKING
Published October 31, 1997
Astros Owner Drayton McLane Jr. attended yesterday's groundbreaking ceremony for Houston's new downtown ballpark, "ending two days of speculation" that he might not show up "since he has not completed a letter of agreement" for a long-term lease with the Harris County-Houston Sports Authority, according to John Williams of the HOUSTON CHRONICLE. McLane said that the "biggest holdup" in talks is how to keep the projects's cost under the "promised" $250M cost, but added that he "expects" to have the negotiations completed "early next week" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 10/31).
