  • HOK ARCHITECTS GIVE PLAN TO IMPROVE YANKEE STADIUM

         The plan to renovate Yankee Stadium may "crystallize as
    early as this week with the expected release of a design for the
    ballpark."  Officials say the new look will "incorporate old-
    fashioned touches reminiscent of the original stadium."
    Architects HOK of Kansas City gave their report to the city last
    week, and city leaders will present it to Mayor Rudolph Giuliani
    and Governor-elect George Pataki first, and then the Yankees.
    Estimates for the renovation have started at $250 million
    (Richard Sandomir, N.Y. TIMES, 12/4).

  • SCHOTT CALLS FOR NEW FACILITY -- LOOKS AT KENTUCKY SITE

         Reds CEO Marge Schott denied reports that she wants to build
    a new ballpark in Northern KY, but she "still considers
    abandoning Riverfront Stadium and crossing the Ohio River an
    option" (Green & Young, CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 12/3).  Schott's
    statement was part of a busy weekend, as City Manager John Shirey
    called for a summit with Bengals Owner Mike Brown and Schott to
    end "intensifying debate over where the Reds and Bengals should
    play in the future."  But Reds GM Jim Bowden, speaking for
    Schott, canceled the meeting and threatened a legal battle to
    terminate the team's lease unless the city increases its efforts
    to build a baseball-only facility.  Some members of the City
    Council took Bowden's remarks seriously enough to say they will
    "urge" Shirey to make a deal with Schott (Haft & Green,
    CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 12/4)
