FRANCHISE NOTES

     Timberwolves suitor Glen Taylor has also expressed interest
in buying the Twins.  Taylor: "I have talked to Carl [Pohlad] and
we may have a story someday."  Pohlad might sell a minority
interest in the team once the strike is resolved, and give the
purchaser "an option to buy it all eventually."  Taylor has also
said he would like to bring an NHL franchise to the area, making
him "the Wayne Huizenga of Minnesota" (Sid Hartman, Minneapolis
STAR TRIBUNE, 9/17).... The Arena Football League will announce
today that a St. Louis franchise will begin play in the Kiel
Center in 1995.  The team, owned by the Blues, is yet to be named
(ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 9/20)....In Dallas, Dan Noxon writes on
the future of NHL expansion, and notes that Oklahoma City
"promises to make at least as much noise" as Atlanta, Phoenix and
Denver (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 9/18).
