Padres' Riddoch gets extension

Baseball Notes

October 06, 1991

San Diego Padres manager Greg Riddoch was granted a one-year contract extension last night.

Padres general manager Joe McIlvaine made the announcement before the Padres played the Cincinnati Reds. Financial terms were not disclosed.

"I'd like to have a 10-year contract. You'd like to have more than one year, but right now it's the agreement that I do it for one year," Riddoch said. "I accept that, I'm happy with it and I'm going to go forward with it."

* YANKEES: Robert Nederlander watched New York lose to Cleveland at Yankee Stadium and he may have been witnessing one of the club's final losses while he is still managing general partner.

Citing unnamed sources, recent newspaper reports have said Nederlander will resign because he is weary of the job and of being criticized by George Steinbrenner. Nederlander declined to comment.

* GIANTS: San Francisco Mayor Art Agnos has made another pitch for a baseball stadium with money left over from his failed 1989 effort to build a downtown stadium.

The new non-profit corporation headed by Ed McGovern calls for a stadium near the San Francisco International Airport. McGovern led the 1989 campaign drive for a new ballpark.

McGovern said he was being paid by the non-profit corporation and not from taxpayers' money.
