Owners will vote today on Expos' proposed move
WASHINGTON -- Baseball commissioner Bud Selig scheduled a conference call for today for owners to vote on the proposed move of the Montreal Expos to Washington.
A notice to the major league teams went out late Wednesday. The vote is expected to be conditioned on the District of Columbia completing legislation to fund a new ballpark for the team.
The D.C. Council voted earlier this week to approve financing but must vote a second time for the measure to become law. In addition, the Council added a $630 million cap to the project that was not contained in the agreement signed in September by the Expos and Washington Mayor Anthony A. Williams.
Bob DuPuy, baseball's chief operating officer, met with Baltimore Orioles owner Peter Angelos earlier this week in an attempt to reach an agreement that would protect the Orioles franchise. Angelos says the team in Washington will cut his club's revenue.
Maryland Gov. Robert Ehrlich said earlier this week that the matter could wind up in court.
