Piniella denies he's leaving for Florida team American League

July 20, 1995|By Seattle Times

SEATTLE -- Questions about Lou Piniella's future with the Seattle Mariners are coming not from the Kingdome but from a few blocks away: the King County Courthouse.

An affidavit filed in Superior Court contends that the manager plans to leave after this season for a team in Florida, in part because laws there would prevent creditors from garnisheeing his wages to pay off a business debt of nearly $350,000.

Piniella acknowledged the debt but denied he is heading to the Florida Marlins, the new club in Tampa Bay, or any other team. "There's absolutely nothing to it," he said.
