MIKE ILITCH WILL LOBBY STATE FOR NEW TIGERS' STADIUM

     Tigers owner Mike Ilitch said he will personally lobby MI
lawmakers to help finance a new baseball stadium.  Ilitch: "I'll
do whatever is required."  Ilitch said his proposal last spring
for a new stadium failed because it was thrust too suddenly on
the public.  Ilitch said he was surprised by the "severity" of
the criticism directed at him during the stadium debate.  He said
that this time, he will be better prepared: "I'll be ready to
deal with it like a political issue.  Ilitch has gone outside his
public relations staffs at the Tigers and Little Caesars Pizza
and hired the firm Bassett & Bassett to promote the new stadium
proposal (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 10/12).
