NYT Selling Boston Globe to Red Sox Owner, According to Peter Gammons

By

Longtime baseball columnist Peter Gammons, citing "sources" in a one-line report, says Boston Red Sox and Liverpool Football Club owner John Henry will purchase the Globe from the New York Times Company, which has been hoping to unload the paper for years. Henry, who bid all by himself on Wednesday after his group attempt fell through, was said to be among a few potential buyers in the mix, with a decision coming soon. The Times Co. did not immediately respond to a request for comment, so Gammons is all we've got for now.
