Fox Sports Set To Produce First Padres Game, But MLB Still Has Not Approved Deal
Published March 16, 2012
AN UPHILL BATTLE: CBSSPORTS.com's Jon Heyman noted Padres Vice Chair & CEO Jeff Moorad's "withdrawn application to gain controlling ownership of the Padres isn't merely a formality." Moorad does not have the "votes of other owners, and there is no sign of him getting them soon." A source called Moorad's "attempt at ownership an 'uphill battle.''' Under his contract with Padres Chair John Moores, Moorad will "remain the Padres' CEO and has two years to try to gain the votes." Upon withdrawing the ownership application last week, Moorad cited the need to "focus on the television contract'' with Fox Sports (CBSSPORTS.com, 3/15).
