LIKE LITTLE ANGELS -- DISNEY, ANAHEIM, TEAM KEEPING QUIET
While officials from Disney continue to insist that their
deal to buy controlling interest of the Angels is dead, Anaheim
city officials voted Tuesday to refuse to comment on the deal.
Teri Sforza reports the team has delayed any sale negotiations
with other parties "until Disney's star falls completely out of
the sky." Meanwhile, it is believed that if negotiations with
other possible buyers should begin, Peter Ueberroth will get the
"first crack" (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 3/21). Ueberroth
commented Tuesday that negotiations are "ongoing" between Anaheim
and Disney, but Angels President Richard Brown said he was
unaware of such talks. Brown: "I assume he knows something I
don't know, but I've been several steps removed from the
negotiations" (Ross Newhan, L.A. TIMES, 3/21).
