SUPPORT FOR UNITED BASEBALL LEAGUE CONTINUES TO GROW

     Support among player agents for the United Baseball League
is growing, according to Murray Chass of the N.Y. TIMES.
Longtime agent Tony Attansio said that he has polled his clients
about the new league and they have reacted with unanimous
interest: "I was shocked at the response.  One hundred percent
would go to the new league. ... Guys are fed up to their eyeballs
with the Bud Selig-Jerry Reinsdorf nonsense."  Agent Tom Reich
said that the new league will be able to lure players: "I think
there would be a lot of very good players who would be willing to
play in the new league" (N.Y. TIMES, 11/6).  In Philadelphia,
Gary Miles writes, "Even though we don't give the UBL much of a
shot, if it teaches the rest of baseball anything about putting
the customer first, we can all be grateful" (PHILADELPHIA
INQUIRER, 11/6).
