STEINBRENNER SAYS HE IS NOT READY TO LEAVE THE BRONX

     Yankees Owner George Steinbrenner has rejected parts of the
city's $380M plan to "keep the team in the Bronx," according to a
report in this morning's N.Y. POST.  City officials have since
formulated a new plan and submitted it back to Steinbrenner, but
no details of the proposal were released.  Steinbrenner dismissed
a report in this week's NEW YORK OBSERVER that he has decided "to
abandon the Bronx" and had met secretly with officials at the New
Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority.  Through a spokesperson,
Steinbrenner said:  "We haven't made up our minds yet as to what
we will do."  Steinbrenner met yesterday with city officials,
including NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, about the city's proposal
(David Seifman, N.Y. POST, 1/24).
