A'S OFFERED AN ESCAPE CLAUSE IN LEASE WITH RAIDERS' RETURN

     The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum board agreed earlier
this week to allow potential A's owners Steven Schott and Kenneth
Hofman to terminate their lease in '98 if renovations do not go
as planned and the club continues to lose money, according to the
S.F. CHRONICLE.  Oakland Coliseum President George Vukasin:
"We're very comfortable with that three-year window because these
people bought the team because they want to keep it in the East
Bay, not just make money" (Peter Fimrite, S.F. CHRONICLE, 7/13).
