NL'S NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK TO HOST ALL-STARS IN '98, 2000
Published June 26, 1995
Reports in Denver and Miami confirm that the All-Star game will be played at Coors Field in '98 and Joe Robbie Stadium in 2000. Both cities bid for the '96 game and lost out to Philadelphia (DENVER POST, 6/25). In Miami, Susan Miller Degnan reports that the game "would generate about $20 million for South Florida over a three-day period" (MIAMI HERALD, 6/24). The '99 game will be at an AL site. SMALLER COMMITTEE, SAME NAMES: Red Sox CEO John Harrington, Rockies Owner Jerry McMorris and Royals CEO David Glass will make up MLB's labor negotiating committee when talks resume with players. Harrington, on talks: "I have a feeling we're a few weeks away. It might be after the All-Star Game [July 11]" (AP/TORONTO STAR, 6/24). Following a report on the end of The Baseball Network, "ET" examined the low attendence. Bret Saberhagen: "We've got a lot of fans who have come out to Shea Stadium this year dressed as empty seats" ("ET," 6/23).
