NEW YORK () - Baseball
E W E Commissioner Bowie Kuhn re-
vealed yesterday he had dis-
cussed the purchase of the
Washington Senators with sev-
eral major companies, and that
selling to a corporation could
be the answer to keeping the
problem - plagued club in the
nation's capital.
-- - --- Only two of major league
baseball's24 teamsjcurrently
casuce Beien I are owned by major companies
-the St. Louis Cardinals by An-
nt C) heuser - Busch and the New
York Yankess by Columbia
Broadcasting System.
Kuhn declined to reveal the
name of the companies or the
Orr k purchase price that would satis-
GE. fy Bob Short, the current owner
of the Senators. But it was
Time= learned that the figure would
be in the $10 million neighbor-
' is hood. Short originally purchased
the Senators for $9.4 million.
Kuhn. in an interview with
oitar The Associated Press, made his
,. - disclosure about talks with cor-
kel, porations interested in purchas-
r K ing the Senators while pointing
out he would approve such a
sale "because in this situation
e a corporation would have the
needed amount of capital for a
successful operation.

son for it," Kuhn continued.
'Baseball would prefer to find

University lem in Washington if possible.
OPEN 12:45 "In this situation an orderly
development is needed for the
team to become competitive -
I and a corporation can better
develop than an individual on
an orderly basis. We have,
therefore, encouraged companies
ted for on the basis that purchasing the
club would be an attractive cor-
y Awards porate opportunity'
Kuhn said there were three
ear! reasons why the Senators would
appear to be an attractive op-

portunity - it would provide "an
invaluable platform for busi-
ness," it would put the com-
pany "near the seat of govern-
ment" and it would make the
purchaser "the savior of base-
ball for our nation's capital."
Kuhn said the discussions had
stemmed from his position as a
member of the committee se-
lected to solvoethehproblems of
the Senators. The other members
of the committee are Short and
American League President Joe
Cronin.
Kuhn pointed out the commit-
tee had talked to the Armory
Board that runs Robert F. Ken-
nedy Stadium in Washington and
the board had indicated it would
make lease concessions in the
area of r e nt, concessions and
advertising in the park.
Kuhn said that even with the
Armory Board making such
concessions Short "seems to
think it's doubtful he could op

Kuhn said he also had been
approached by several indivi

but again declined to make the
names public. He also did not
rule out the possible move of
the club to another city.
"It's obviously a requirement
of keeping the team in Wash-
