Reports that Roy Becker is hiding from the Maryland Stadium Authority aren't quite accurate, according to a leading authority on the T-shirt salesman's whereabouts -- Becker himself.
"I'm a very busy person. I'm selling shirts all over Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania," he said yesterday.
The stadium authority has been looking for Becker since late September, when it filed a lawsuit alleging that Becker's line of Camden Yards T-shirt infringes on its copyright. After hiring a process server and using the mail, the authority still has not been able to find Becker to deliver court papers.
Speaking by telephone yesterday, he said: "If they were trying hard, they would have found me. Apparently, they are not trying hard enough."
