WORTH A SCHOTT: COUNTY EXPLORES BUYING REDS OWNER'S SHARES
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).
