  • IS MARINERS STADIUM SUPPORT IN JEOPARDY IF JOHNSON TRADED?

         State legislators in favor of a new retractable-roof
    facility for the Mariners got a boost when House representatives
    voted in favor of sending a stadium finance bill back to
    committee.  State Rep. Marlin Appelwick received the needed 50
    votes during a second ballot on Friday, one day after the bill
    was defeated in an initial vote (Joseph Turner, Tacoma MORNING
    NEWS TRIBUNE, 4/15).  Recent reports one WA legislator believes
    the Mariners possible trade of ace Randy Johnson could have a
    negative impact on their request for state assistance (Buster
    Olney, Baltimore SUN, 4/17).  If the Mariners stay intact and
    have a successful season, it "could boost local support" for a
    new facility (Jim Street, SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, 4/17).

  • WEST COAST NBA TEAMS DEAL WITH ARENA ISSUES

         CLIPPERS AT THE POND:  The Clippers have submitted an
    application with the NBA Board of Governors to add two games at
    Anaheim's Arrowhead Pond for '95-96.  The team played six games
    in Orange County this season, and averaged 17,783.  In games at
    their primary home, the L.A. Sports Arena, the team averaged
    8,583 per game.  The team will also play two preseason games in
    Anaheim (WASHINGTON POST, 4/15).
         WARRIORS GO AHEAD WITH IMPACT STUDY:  The Warriors will move
    forward with plans for an environmental impact report at Rincon
    Hill in San Francisco, a proposed site for their new arena.
    Warriors Owner Christopher Cohan said the team will also look
    into "other possibilities," including a site near the current
    Oakland Coliseum, a Mission Bay site where the MLB Giants hope to
    build an entertainment center and stadium, and possibly sharing
    the San Jose Arena, operated by the Sharks (Glenn Dickey, SAN
    FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, 4/15).
