DEVELOPER PUSHES NEW BOSTON STADIUM PLANS

     Boston developer Joe Corcoran is pushing his $800M plan for
a convention center, baseball park, and football stadium in an
area called Crosstown.  The Red Sox and Corcoran's group have
been talking "behind the scenes" for months.  Red Sox CEO John
Harrington: "We want a new ballpark and when these labor problems
are over in baseball, we will focus a lot more attention on
that."  Corcoran's idea is to have the Sox "develop their own
stadium with their own investors."  The Boston Redevelopment
Authority was to begin talks this week on a convention center and
sites for the teams (Will McDonough, BOSTON GLOBE, 10/6).
