Nederlander approved
Major league owners in unanimous agreement

way producer Robert- Nederlander,
promising to bring front office
stability and fiscal sanity to the New
York Yankees after George
Steinbrenner's 17 112 years, was
unanimously approved yesterday by
major league owners as the team's
new general partner.
The owners ended their quarterly
meetings by extending American
League president Dr. Bobby Brown's
contract for two years and by more
than doubling the pension benefits
of players who retired from 1947
through 1958.

The two leagues failed to reach an
agreement on the American League's
suggestion to share in the National
League's $190 million franchise
fees, prompting Commissioner Fay
Vincent's promise to intervene if
Nederlander backed off criticizing
Steinbrenner's free spending on free
agents and revolving-door hirings
and firings, but said the Yankees
will rebuild their farm system and
"will operate in a fiscally
responsible manner."
Hinting he won't be a headline-
seeking, hands-on owner like

Steinbrenner, Nederlander said he
won't second-guess general manager
Gene Michael, player personnel
director George Bradley or manager
Stump Merrill.
"My own personal philosophy is
you have to give people a chance,
and continuity is important," he
said. "If a reasonable decision has
been made, you should stick with it,
and you shouldn't second guess
Meanwhile, Vincent-marking
his first anniversary as com-
missioner-said he is sympathetic to
the financial plight of small-market

franchises such as Pitts-burgh,
Milwaukee and Cleveland "but
there's nothing that I nor anyone
else in baseball can hold out as a
panacea in the short term."
One of baseball's most fiscally
conservative franchises, the Pirates
likely will pay Barry Bonds and
Bobby Bonilla more money in 1991
than their total 1986 payroll.
"Some of these players may not
be retainable" by small-market
teams, Vincent said. "There will
have to be some very hard economic
decisions made by clubs like
Pittsburgh. "
