GIANTS TRIPLE-A TEAM COULD BE ON THE WAY TO AUSTIN

     The Phoenix Firebrands are in negotiations to relocate to
Austin, TX, for the '97 season, according to today's ARIZONA
REPUBLIC.  The Firebrands and Austin city officials have worked
out a plan which "provides for an unusual public-private venture
to build" an $18M, 12,000 seat stadium on city parkland.  A study
concluded the team could draw up to 450,000 fans and bring about
$9M to the city's economy (Bob Eger, ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 3/24).
