A'S STILL FOR SALE, BUT THEY'LL PLAY IN OAKLAND IN '95

     In announcing the re-signing of manager Tony LaRussa
yesterday, A's CEO Wally Haas also acknowledged that the team
will remain in Oakland through 1995.  But Haas said that the A's
still remain on the market and would continue to search for a
prospective buyer.  Haas did not waive the December 6 deadline
that has been given to Alameda County officials to find a buyer
committed to keeping the team in Oakland.  Oakland Coliseum Board
Member James Vohs said he remains "optimistic" a buyer can be
found by the deadline (Larry Slonaker, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS,
10/19).
