CITY/TEAM OFFICIALS SEE THE AEROS OF THEIR WAYS, INK DEAL
Published January 22, 1998
The AA Aeros have signed a lease agreement with the city of Akron that "ends months of bickering between Aeros owner Mike Agganis and city officials," according to Charlene Nevada of the AKRON BEACON JOURNAL. While terms were not released, a tentative deal reported earlier said Agganis would pay the city $1.1M over three years and agree to sell "cheaper bleacher tickets for all games, even if not all of the reserved seats had been sold out." Agganis "got some of what he wanted, including more leverage to put up advertising and permission for auxiliary billboards." Last year, the Indians AA team set an Eastern League attendance record by drawing over 470,000 (BEACON JOURNAL, 1/22).
