BOSTON MAYOR CALLS FOR REEBOK TO TAKE OVER FENWAY

     Boston Mayor Thomas Menino yesterday suggested "that if the
Red Sox eventually leave Fenway Park, the ballpark might serve as
the location for the corporate headquarters of Reebok," according
to this morning's BOSTON GLOBE.  Menino said Fenway "would make a
great campus" for the company, which is currently based in
Stoughton, MA.  Menino, who said he had not discussed the idea
with Reebok officials, said a Reebok-Fenway deal would give the
company "a great showcase," while "maintaining the agricultural
integrity" of Fenway.  However, Menino "signaled" that keeping
the Sox at Fenway could be his first priority.  Don Aucoin writes
that the Mayor "may urge the Red Sox to take another look at an
earlier city proposal -- already spurned by the club -- to expand
Fenway Park in its existing location."  The team is in favor of
replacing Fenway with a ballpark in South Boston (BOSTON GLOBE,
8/22).
