UEBERROTH AT HEAVEN'S GATE? HE WANTS TO BE TOP ANGEL

     Peter Ueberroth is reportedly one of the leading candidates
to become minority owner and managing general partner of the
Angels.  The former commissioner, one of six Angel board members,
"refused to discuss his interest."  Bob Nightengale of the L.A.
TIMES writes Ueberroth "might try to buy the club with the
assistance of powerful Orange County businessman, George Argyros.
Argyros, former owner of the Seattle Mariners, reportedly is
worth at least $250 million."  Angel co-owner Jackie Autry has
suspended talks with prospective owners until the strike is
settled.  Autry: "It's premature for me to speculate what will
happen.  There are just too many unknowns. ...  Peter has other
things to worry about than this right now" (L.A. TIMES, 11/4).
