SBD/7/Leagues Governing Bodies


     MLBPA Exec Dir Donald Fehr met with Rockies owner Jerry
McMorris yesterday, "perhaps paving the way for the resumption of
talks late next week."  McMorris: "We didn't move on any of the
substantive issues.  We did talk about how to get the talks re-
started.  We'll talk again tomorrow and try to fix some schedules
for the end of next week" (TORONTO STAR, 10/7).  Peter Schmuck
reports that Fehr and McMorris have met twice in the last two
days, once Wednesday night and again Thursday morning.  "The
discussion covered a variety of topics, apparently including"
Orioles owner Peter Angelos' revenue-sharing plan.  One MLB
source said that the owners took Angelos' plan "seriously enough
to perform a computer analysis of it" (Baltimore SUN, 10/7).
Meanwhile, in a letter to the union from management regarding its
proposed 45-day freeze on player transactions, owners asked that
rules preventing the clubs from "acting in concert be suspended
during the freeze" (USA TODAY, 10/7).  The union will hold
internal discussions on whether to endorse the freeze or, "agree
to suspend the anti-collusion language should the owners impose"
(Claire Smith, N.Y. TIMES, 10/7).
