Sep 14 12
John Henry, owner of Boston Red Sox Baseball Club LP, denied a report stating that he was planning to sell the company. The Fox Business Network reported that John Henry and his partners were looking for potential buyers. The news report stated that Fenway Sports Group did not have the financial resources to operate the Red Sox and New England Sports Network, Inc. and as a result, would sell Red Sox. John Henry said, “A sale of any kind is so far from our thinking it hasn't even come up apart from technical planning issues involving death or disability. This report is completely without foundation.” He addede, “Regarding unnamed sources: Any sale discussions that may have taken place were missing three key people -- Larry, Tom, and me. The Sox and any of the other components of FSG are not for sale and will not be for the foreseeable future.” Tom Werner, Chairman of Red Sox, said, “There's not a scintilla of truth to it. We're not selling the team. I don't know what else I can say.” Several Red Sox executives, including Chief Operating Officer, Sam Kennedy, denied the idea that there have been discussions about a sale. Sam Kennedy stated, “John, Tom, and Larry aren't going anywhere.”
