Expansion groups make their pitches

November 02, 1994

Two groups from northern Virginia and one each from Phoenix and St. Petersburg, Fla., made 90-minute presentations to the Major League Baseball expansion committee outside Chicago yesterday.

The first Virginia group said that 51 percent of the franchise would be owned by Homestead Baseball Inc., a black-owned company run by Robert Johnson, a business consultant. There are no black-owned major-league teams.
