MITCHELL OUT OF RUNNING FOR BASEBALL COMMISSIONER?

     George Mitchell's appointment as President Clinton's special
adviser on economic development in Ireland "may be a temporary
job" but it appears that he is "no longer in line to be baseball
commissioner.  Mitchell has indicated to friends that he and
owners have "drifted apart and they will have to begin another
search process."  Asked if former Democratic National Chair Paul
Kirk would be considered for the position, one owner said that if
a labor agreement is made, the search process will start over,
possibly with the players involved in the search process (Peter
Gammons, BOSTON GLOBE, 12/2).  Mitchell assumes the position on
January 10, 1995 (White House).
