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)
