Washington DC's mayor says he's willing to be flexible if that helps bring baseball back to the nation's capital.
Mayor Tony Williams says Major League Baseball owners already
have been told that he and the D-C Council will come up with a
financing plan for a new stadium within 45 days, once a decision is
made to locate a team in the city.
Williams says no one connected to the league's owners has told
him the lack of a solid financial plan is a stumbling block for the
city. But he says he's willing to work with the council to get a
head start on the plan if that would help.
Baseball owners are trying to find a new location for the
financially troubled Montreal Expos. The relocation committee is
meeting today in New York -- with all owners gathering tomorrow.
