FINANCING FOR NEW TIGER STADIUM SET BACK

     MI Gov. John Engler's rejection of casino gambling as a
funding methid for a new Tigers' stadium last week "set back" the
team's latest efforts.  The Tigers believe they must get started
building this year "or they'll lose still another season of
playing in a new stadium."  In his column in the DETROIT FREE
PRESS, Bob Talbert reports that a source close to Tigers/Little
Caesars/Red Wings Owner Mike Ilitch said that "if they can't
start now, the Tigers will be forced to move."  Talbert writes
that if a new stadium is rejected this time, "don't be surprised
to see Ilitch move not only the Tigers out of Detroit but the
Little Caesars headquarters, too" (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 7/2).
