REDS STILL REMAIN CAUTIOUS ON A CINERGY REMAKE
Published January 12, 1998
Reds Managing CEO John Allen said the team "won't enter into an agreement for transformation" of Cinergy Field "until architects and engineers assure the club a 1970s bowl configuration can be turned into a 21st-century moneymaker," according to Hobson & May of the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER. MLB is also "skeptical" of Hamilton County, OH, Commissioner Bob Bedinghaus' prediction that a Cinergy Field renovation could be on the "cutting edge of a new wave of designs in the style of Anaheim Stadium's $100 million renovation." An MLB source: "It's a reversal of the successful trends that have been in the game recently. Anaheim has a baseball footprint. Cinergy is more of a football print." MLB must approve any stadium deal. Allen said that the team "runs the risk of not drawing enough fans" with a transformation, as opposed to a new park (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 1/9).
