HALOS COULD FLOAT TO ANOTHER CITY IF ANAHEIM BALKS

     Negotiations between the Angels and City of Anaheim for a
new stadium "have been put on the back-burner," according to this
morning's L.A. TIMES.  Angels President Richard Brown said he
continues to receive "feelers from other cities interested in
attracting the team."  Brown said the Angels and the city are
still about $4M a year in debt service apart on a deal for a
$215M, 43,000-seat facility, which the team hopes build next to
Anaheim Stadium by '99.  The team has asked the city for
concessions in their current lease, which would let them retain
more stadium revenue, but the city will only amend it if the team
makes a long-term commitment to the new stadium.  Brown: "We
still have plenty of time to reach an agreement to have a stadium
ready for the 1999 season" (Mike DiGiovanna, L.A. TIMES, 4/27).
