GIANT FAN FILES SUIT OVER REPLACEMENTS, GETS AIR TIME

     Rafeal Trujillo, a Giants season-ticket holder, has sued the
team over its policy requiring full payment for tickets "in a
season that may feature replacement players."  Season-ticket
holders who fail to pay and renew their tickets will lose their
seats.  Trujillo's attorneys said they will ask for a court order
prohibiting the Giants from demanding full payment for
replacement games (Dennis Opartnry, S.F. EXAMINER, 2/15).  The
"CBS Evening News" and ABC's "World News Tonight" both profiled
Trujillo's suit.  S.F. Board of Supervisors member Angela Alioto
said the board will "probably, with a unanimous vote, say 'it
[replacement baseball] is not going to happen at Candlestick
Park'" (CBS, 2/14).  ABC's Brian Rooney profiled Trujillo and the
policy of MLB teams who ask their season ticket holders to pay up
or lose their seats.  Rooney said fans are also suing in New
York, Miami and Dallas (ABC, 2/14).
