Reinsdorf Has "Strongly Suggested" His Executors Sell White Sox Upon His Death
Published July 29, 2013
THE HEIR APPARENT: The CHICAGO TRIBUNE's Harris & Hopkins wrote Michael Reinsdorf is "seen as the heir apparent" of the Bulls, whom his father "gained control of" in '85. Michael Reinsdorf's positions were "created for him to oversee all business affairs." Prior to that, he had been "representing the Bulls" at NBA BOG meetings. Both Reinsdorfs said that Michael's "involvement in the Bulls -- and not the Sox -- is due to Jerry's schedule." Jerry "snowbirds in Arizona during basketball season and is heavily involved in daily operations with the baseball team." Michael Reinsdorf said, "I think having myself involved here makes it clear to the people inside the office and the people outside the office that the Chicago Bulls are incredibly important to my father" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 7/28).
