Transcript PRESS, RADIO AND TV RELEASE 1 ASTROS ASEBALL CLUB O. BOX 268 HOUSTON, TEXAS 77001 NATIONAL LEAGUE OF PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL PHONE Rl 8-4500 66-123 FOR RELEASE TUESDAY, A.M., MAY 10 5/9/66 George Kirksey has resigned from the Houston Sports Association and has sold his two per cent stock in the association to Judge Roy Hofheinz, it was announced jointly late Monday by Kirksey and Hofheinz. Kirksey has been associated with the HSA since its birth in 1960 when he joined forces with Hofheinz, Craig Cullinan, Jr., R. E. (Bob) Smith and other leading Houstonians to secure a major league baseball franchise for Houston. "The entire transaction was amiable," Kirksey said. "I will continue to have a close attachment to the Astros and feel they have a very bright future. The only other thing I want to say is that I think the Astrodome is the greatest athletic facility ever built and that there is no second." Kirksey said his immediate plans were to travel in Europe for five or six weeks and weigh the numerous other job offers he has received. "George made a real contribution to securing major league sports for Houston and to the success of the Astrodome," Hofheinz said, "He leaves the HSA as a good friend and we all wish him well." Hofheinz now owns 88% of the HSA stock. 30
