EXPOS FANS ANGRY OVER NEXT YEAR'S SEASON-TICKET POLICY

     Despite the uncertainty concerning the start of the '95
season, the Expos have commenced their ticket marketing campaign
for next season.  The team recently sent letters to season-ticket
holders in which they warned subscribers to "pay half the cost of
a season ticket by November 15" in order to "avoid unpleasant
surprises."  Many fans felt the letter implied that if their
deposit was not in by November 15, then their ticket could be
taken away and given to someone else looking to upgrade.  Mitch
Melnick, a sports talk-show host on CIQC Radio in Montreal said
that area fans are upset: "There's no way they should treat
people like that" (Danny Gallagher, Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 10/25).
     TORONTO:  Blue Jays Stadium and Ticket Operations Dir George
Holm said that the Blue Jays plan to take a "wait-and-see
attitude" before marketing '95 season tickets.  Holm: "We see no
point in putting tickets on sale."  Holm added that if an
agreement is not met by December 1, that the team will probably
decide then whether to proceed with a ticket campaign or continue
to wait (GLOBE & MAIL, 10/25).
