Taking one for the team
Drew Mahalic says fund education first, then get baseball.
By Oakley Brooks
Say this about Drew Mahalic: He's a team player.
He badly wants a major league baseball franchise in Portland. The feeling is personal as well as professional. After five seasons as an NFL linebacker in the late '70s, he knows what the top level of professional sports feels like in his bones. He's a sports aficionado, right down to the way he paused with a visitor recently in his small office, not far from PGE Park, to glowingly display one of Sammy Sosa's bats from his collection. For Mahalic, who moved to Portland 18 years ago, a baseball team isn't only another attraction or a $100 million business, it's a crucial building block for the growth of his adopted burg in the 21st century.
