offer that included a donation to charity Joe Sullivan vice president of operations said the contract was refused after he had a lengthy meeting with Brown and his Leigh Steinberg Club owner Bidwill Saturday offered to donate the money to the Jesuit Program for Living and Learning in St Louis if Brown the team's No 2 draft choice came to contract terms Bidwill said Steinberg originally proposed the charity contribution We had assumed the conditions for an agreement set down by Mr Steinberg had been met when we announced of his suggestion for giving to charity the differential remaining between the two Sullivan said However this was unacceptable to them and they have continued to negotiate for a contract beyond the terms we already set down as a last offer Sullivan said the dinals will reduce their offer to Brown by a day for each day he is not signed and in uniform He said Bidwill has promised to turn over to the Jesuit program regardless of the outcome of the negotiations Steinberg has questioned the timing of the team's offer I made the offer about a charity donation with respect to our original negotiating he said I said it back when we were way way far apart in our figures So now with that offer in the past since we dropped our demands down to very rock bottom to make a deal now they want to make up the difference in donations He I'm excited that they have taken a sudden interest in com- munity affairs We're very happy that the money is going to charity moved to third on Jim single Don sacrifice fly scored Martinez and after a single by Gorman Thomas double
