Clipping:Rumor of a sale of the Metropolitans
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Thursday, April 3, 1884|
It has been understood in New York for the past day or two that plans are being made by several gentlemen in that city to organize a stock company and take control of the Metropolitan base ball club, now under the management of the Metropolitan Exhibition Company. It is not known who the gentlemen are or what they intend to do further than to take the club off the hands of the Exhibition Company and to make money out of it. Should the change be made, Manager James Mutrie will continue to hold his stock in the club and continue to be its manager, and Mr. Appleton will retire. The club is in no urgent need of money, notwithstanding its poor success last season, it having still a considerable amount to its credit standing over from 1882.
