HARRINGTON SAYS CELTICS WON'T FIND RED SOX IN THEIR STOCKING

     Red Sox CEO John Harrington denied a weekend N.Y. TIMES
report that the Celtics are looking into a possible purchasing of
the Red Sox.  Saying there "is no truth to the story," Harrington
said, "The shares of the Yawkey estate are not for sale.  When
they are, everyone will know about it at the same time."  The
newspaper reported that the Boston Celtics Limited Partnership,
with new-found assets and a desire to diversify, may be
interested in acquiring the Red Sox to gain a strong hold on the
Boston sports market.  Celtics Chair Paul Gaston would not
comment on the TIMES story (May & McDonough, BOSTON GLOBE,
12/19).
