I t II Continued From G-1 to labor and television negotiations and franchise stability "The sooner he resigns the better" Philadelphia Phil lies owner Bill Giles said The resolution drafted by lawyers for the American and National leagues was introduced by Douglas Danforth of the Pittsburgh Pirates The vote was taken by secret ballot but several owners and officials identified the Baltimore Orioles Boston Red Sox Florida Marlins Houston Astros Montreal Expos New York Mets Oakland Athletics and Texas Rangers as eight teams that Spoke against it There were conflicting reports whether the Detroit Tigers or Kansas City Royals were the ninth team supporting Vincent Cincinnati Reds owner Marge Schott left the meeting early and her vote was counted as an abstention "The ball is in his court If it comes back to us then we'll run with it" Jackie Autry of the California Angels said "I don't know what this means The only thing for certain is that 18 people want to get rid of the commissioner" Toronto Blue Jays president Paul Beeston elected to preside over the meeting in Vincent's absence read the resolution during a news conference following the session "Now for the first time he can see the numbers against him" Reinsdorf said "Before this he may very well not have realized there were 18 Now he knows" The meeting was adjourned to next Wednesday morning at St Louis prior to the afternoon start of the regular quarterly meetings "The major league clubs do not have confidence in the ability of the present commissioner Fay Vincent to carry out the responsibilities of the office of the commissioner and that under his direction it is impossible for baseball to move forward effectively and constructively" the resolution stated "Those clubs voting in favor of this resolution will not vote in favor of the re-election of commissioner Fay Vincent to another term of office when such matter is ! i Baseball Owners Vote To Oust Commissioner presented to the major league clubs for vote" it also said "It is further resolved that commissioner Fay Vincent be requested to resign effective immediately and that the commissioner be offered in the event of his immediate resignation a severance agreement consistent with his employment agreement of Dec 13 1989" The owners also said their 10- man executive council would appoint a committee next week "to study the restructuring of the management of major league baseball" The committee is to report to all owners by Nov 1 American League president Bobby Brown and National League president Bill White called the meeting over Vincent's objection The commissioner's supporters were less vocal than his opponents after the meeting but George W Bush of the Texas Rangers the son of the president spoke up in his defense prior to the session "I'm going to stand up and tell the owners he's a friend of mine since the oil fields of Texas and he's not going to leave" Bush said Because the Major League Agreement doesn't have a mechanism for firing a commissioner it was unclear what options were available to disenchanted owners An attempted firing would lead to a court fight that could tie up baseball's administration for a long time Vincent has retained Brendan V Sullivan Jr the lawyer who defended Oliver L North and has vowed to "carry out my responsibilities until such time as the highest court in this land tells me otherwise" "Mr Sullivan can figure out how to tie up something in court for 18 months if not 10 years" Bush said When Vincent was approved to replace A Bartlett Giamatti following the death of his friend he told a small group of owners that "if I ever fail to have the support of the owners I would step aside" In a later newspaper interview Vincent said of his job: "If the day comes when someone persuades me that I should no longer do it I will be a very easy fellow to deal with- RE 0141 cmEum —4 viN -: ii -
