PLENTY OF SUPPORT FOR NEW MARINERS STADIUM

     The Mariners unveiled their plans for a new ballpark
yesterday, and although the plan lacks the $250M needed "to make
it a reality," it does have "growing support."  According to
Mariners CEO John Ellis, the stadium plan has backing from King
County officials, the Chamber of Commerce, the Governor's office,
U.S. Sen. Slade Gorton and the Sports Council of Seattle/King
Counties -- and a new lobbying effort by a group called, Friends
of Baseball.  If the new park is approved, the Mariners "have
agreed" to help find up to 35% private financing for
construction, to sign a long-term lease and to share profits of
the facility with the public (Angelo Bruscas, SEATTLE POST-
INTELLIGENCER, 3/24).
