SELIG IN STEP WITH TWINS, SAYS MLB WOULD APPROVE MOVE TO NC
Published October 7, 1997
MLB Acting Commissioner Bud Selig said that he is "confident" MLB owners "will follow his lead and allow the Twins to move" to NC, according to Jay Weiner of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. The Twins signed a letter of intent last Friday to sell the team to NC businessman Don Beaver and his NC Major League Baseball (NCMLB) group. Meeting with MN Gov. Arne Carlson and a delegation of MN state officials in Milwaukee, Selig said, "I certainly hope the Twins stay in Minnesota. But for anybody to think that, in this day and age, you can consign an owner to either uncompetitiveness or bankruptcy is sheer folly." Carlson: "There are only two options: to build a stadium or not to build a stadium" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 10/7). NCMLB spokesperson Eddie Bradford, on Monday's developments in Milwaukee: "This is not a done deal, but it does indicate that the owners of major league baseball take North Carolina seriously as a potential market" (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 10/7).
