  • STADIUM NOTES: FANS IN NORTHWEST NOT SOLD ON NEW BALLPARK

         By a 2-1 ratio, readers responding to a TACOMA NEWS TRIBUNE
    survey said they oppose building a new baseball stadium for the
    Mariners with a tax increase.  On September 19, voters in King
    County will decide whether to increase the sales tax by .1% to
    pay for a new park, pay off repair debts and make further
    renovations at the Kingdome (TACOMA NEWS TRIBUNE, 7/31)....A new
    stadium in Tampa may have a "clean air policy."  Based on a fan
    survey, the Tampa Stadium Authority is likely to enforce will "an
    anti-smoking edict if a new stadium is built" (TAMPA TRIBUNE,
    8/1).

  • WHEN THE LANDLORD COMES, YOU GOTTA PAY UP

         The Orioles paid a "partial" rental bill of $1.95M yesterday
    to the Maryland Stadium Authority, according to Mark Hyman of the
    Baltimore SUN.  Stadium officials report they expect rent for '95
    to hit $4M, down from a record $5M in '93.  The low rent
    "projections this year are attributable mostly to the late start
    to the regular season."  Authority Fiscal Officer Dave Willis
    said each cancelled game cost them close to $100,000 in revenues
    with a $35,000 savings in expenses -- a net loss of $65,000/game.
    According to the team's 30-year lease, the O's rent is based on a
    percentage of revenues, including 50% of net parking, 7% of net
    ticket receipts, and 6.67% of concessions sold in the stadium
    cafeteria and delis (Baltimore SUN, 8/1).
