MARLINS PRESIDENT WON'T BE A GRINCH; HE'S STILL SMILIN'
Published December 19, 1997
Marlins President Don Smiley said that he "still expects to buy the team from" Owner Wayne Huizenga but admitted that he is "tinkering with his strategy," according to Antonio Fins of the Ft. Lauderdale SUN-SENTINEL. Smiley said that "he is ready to drop his original strategy of seeking to piece together a group of as many as 30 investors each pitching" in $5M. Smiley: "I thought the business community would step up in a more significant way." Smiley said that he was still talking to members of The Ackerley Group, headed by Sonics Owner Barry Ackerley, one day after it said it wasn't interested in being part of a group bid (Antonio Fins, Ft. Lauderdale SUN-SENTINEL, 12/19).
