A'S COMMISSION STUDY ON VEGAS' FEASIBILITY AS AN MLB CITY
Published March 19, 1998
The A's "have commissioned a study on the feasibility of Las Vegas supporting" an MLB team, according to Steve Kettmann of the S.F. CHRONICLE. The study was commissioned more than a year ago. While sources think that San Jose "remains a favorite" to land the A's if they relocate, with Sacramento also a possibility, the "rapid expansion of Las Vegas ... has turned it into a possible big-league city." A's co-Owner Steve Schott could not be reached, and A's President Sandy Alderson had no comment (CHRONICLE, 3/19).
