Mobilio reported set to sign with Blast

August 20, 1991|By Bill Free

Domenic Mobilio has agreed to terms and will sign a one-year contract with the Baltimore Blast in the next few days, said his father, Joe Mobilio, last night.

"Domenic told me he got a real good deal, and I think he's signing by a fax machine," said Joe Mobilio from Vancouver, British Columbia, last night. "I don't know when he'll be able to come to camp because he's playing with the Vancouver 86ers. He's in Toronto right now."

Mobilio, who shared the Blast scoring lead with Dale Mitchell last season (49 goals, 33 assists for 82 points) couldn't be reached for comment last night, but he said last April: "I see no problems signing with Baltimore this season. The Blast has always treated me well and been fair with me."

Blast assistant general manager Drew Forrester said last night the team had "a couple of announcements" for today, but Forrester wouldn't confirm that Mobilio had agreed to terms.

Mobilio, a two-time Major Soccer League All-Star, is the first player in the history of the Blast franchise to score 40 or more goals in two straight seasons (41 in 1989-90 and 49 in 1990-91).

Forrester said last night the team's 1991-92 schedule would be announced later this week. Forrester called it "the best home schedule in franchise history in terms of dates."
