RED SOX SAY THEY HAVEN'T ASKED CITY FOR "DIME" FOR BALLPARK
Published January 13, 1999
The Red Sox "denied" a report that the team is seeking $50M or more from the City of Boston to help finance a new ballpark, according to Meg Vaillancourt of the BOSTON GLOBE. Red Sox VP/Public Affairs Dick Bresciani: "That is absolutely false. We have not asked the city for a dime. In fact we are still researching and reviewing our options." Bresciani also refused to put a timeline on when the franchise may announce its ballpark plan: "We don't have a definite date for making any decisions." Team officials told the BOSTON GLOBE that a public announcement could be postponed for "several months or more" (BOSTON GLOBE, 1/13).
