IS LINDNER TAKING A SCHOTT TO GET REDS OWNER TO SELL OUT?
Published November 17, 1997
Cincinnati financier Carl Lindner "is quietly trying to convince" Marge Schott to sell her shares in the team, according to Bill Straub of the CINCINNATI POST. If Schott decides to sell, her 6 1/2 shares of the Reds would be offered to the Reds' limited partners, including Lindner, who holds 1 1/2 shares. Sources also said it was Lindner who advised Schott to announce her support for a renovated Cinergy Field over a new ballpark (CINCINNATI POST, 11/15).
