A NEW POWER PLAYER IN THE HUNT FOR THE ROYALS
Published November 10, 1997
Lamar Hunt said Sunday that he has expressed interest in buying the Royals, according to Joe Posnanski of the K.C. STAR. Hunt: "It's very preliminary. We've approached the Royals so we can see the numbers. That's all. We want to hear about it. I'm not at all familiar with the process of the sale or with the Royals, so this is just a first look. We'll see what happens" (K.C. STAR, 11/10). GREEN DAY: Prospective local bidder Jerry Green "bypassed" a Friday deadline to submit a preliminary application to buy the Royals, according to Charles Crumpley of the K.C. STAR. Green said that his unidentified partner "questions whether the team is worth the $75M set as the "minimum bid." Green also said that he "has begun talking with a different group that had expressed interest" in the team, but that he and his original partner "still might bid." The only pre-applicant publicly known is a group led by Bobby and George Brett (K.C. STAR, 11/8).
