Schott Banished

NEW YORK () -- If Marge Schott wants to attend a Cincinnati Reds game, she'll have to buy a ticket.


Reacting to Schott's vow that "I do not intend to disappear," U.S. Major League Baseball officials decided to banish Schott from all non-public areas of Riverfront Stadium starting this week.


"There are several major issues that need to be addressed," NL president Len Coleman said Wednesday.


Schott, facing a suspension from baseball's executive council for her remarks about Adolf Hitler, African-Americans, women and Asians, agreed June 12 to give up day-to-day control of the team through the 1998 season.


Coleman was angered by a July 10 memo from Schott to Reds employees that opened: "I have decided to change my role concerning the day-to-day operations. Contrary to what you may have been led to believe, I do not intend to disappear."
