THE SECRET WORLD OF BASEBALL'S LABOR NEGOTIATIONS

     Lawyers for both MLB owners and the MLBPA continue to meet
"under much secrecy," reports Hal Bodley of USA TODAY.  MLBPA
Asst General Counsel Lauren Rich has been representing the union,
"often accompanied" by agent Steve Fehr, brother of MLBPA Exec
Dir Don Fehr, with attorneys Stan Jaspen and Rob Manfred
representing the owners.  Bodley reports that "communication has
been excellent" and the relationship between the two sides "has
improved dramatically."  One scenario discussed "includes a
temporary agreement that would extend through the 1996 season.
The union might go for that; owners likely would not" (USA TODAY,
6/2).
