OAKLAND COUNCIL APPROVES A'S CONCESSIONS

     After airing "frustrations about long negotiations," Alameda
County supervisors approved $11M in payments to the A's to
"appease" the team's future owners, writes Sandy Kleffman in
today's SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS.  The supervisors also agreed to
advance the team up to $2.5M and allow them to terminate their
lease at the end of '98 for any reason.  Kleffman reports that it
is still "unclear" whether these moves will ease concerns of
prospective owners Kenneth Hofmann and Stephen Schott (SAN JOSE
MERCURY NEWS, 7/21).
