PACK'S MILWAUKEE FAREWELL COULD BE GOOD NEWS FOR BREWERS

     As the Packers played their final game at Milwaukee County
Stadium Sunday, Brewers officials say the "way is clearer now" in
their effort to replace the aging stadium with a new, baseball-
only facility (Michael Hirsley, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 12/18).  ESPN
profiled the final game and the circumstances surrounding the
team's pull-out.  According to Brewers Owner Bud Selig, the
construction of a baseball-only facility will make things easier:
"It is very difficult to produce for them a dual facility, and
them for us [one] that takes care of both teams" ("SportsCenter,"
12/16).
     FLORIDA BOUND?  As the Brewers try and rectify their stadium
situation at home, the team has given the City of Chandler, AZ an
ultimatum: they will move spring training operations to Florida
if the city doesn't make a deal to renovate their current spring
training home by January 16  (Eric Miller, ARIZONA REPUBLIC,
12/17).
