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.
