TRIPLE-A WORLD SERIES LOOKS FOR NEUTRAL SITE AND TV DEAL
Published February 2, 1998
Plans are in the works for a Triple-A World Series matching the champions from the Int'l League and the PCL at a neutral site, according to the Providence JOURNAL- BULLETIN. The first series will be held this year sometime in the middle of September. Int'l League President Randy Mobley: "We want the neutral site in order to sell the event year 'round, market it and get the TV locked up. We still have work to be done with [MLB], some sponsorship work and a little television work." Leading neutral-site candidates include Las Vegas and New Orleans (JOURNAL-BULLETIN, 1/31).
