RED SOX SAY THEY HAVEN'T ASKED CITY FOR "DIME" FOR BALLPARK
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).
