WORTH A SCHOTT: COUNTY EXPLORES BUYING REDS OWNER'S SHARES
Published May 22, 1998
Hamilton County Treasurer Robert Goering "is talking to Reds owner Marge Schott about selling her general partnership shares in the baseball team to Hamilton County," according to Kimball Perry of the CINCINNATI POST. Goering said that Schott is "investigating" if MLB will allow a government to own general partnership shares of a team. Buying the Reds "would ensure Hamilton County -- both as a government and owner of the team -- would determine" where their new ballpark would be built (CINCINNATI POST, 5/21).
