STADIUM NOTES: NEW JERSEY PROPOSAL FOR NEW YANKEE STADIUM

     The state of NJ has drawn up a proposal to build a 50,000-
seat stadium for the Yankees at the Meadowlands, according to the
N.Y. TIMES.  Because NJ officials do not want to be seen as
trying to "steal" the team, they will not make the proposal
public until the Yankees say they are interested in NJ (Murray
Chass, N.Y. TIMES, 9/15)....The S.F. Board of Supervisors have
had a "lukewarm" reaction to the Candlestick Park name change and
could mount a bid to have it revoked (S.F. EXAMINER,
9/15)....Eric Lipton notes in the WASHINGTON POST that contrary
to past announcements, a MLB stadium in Northern VA would require
"tens of millions of dollars" in public support (WASHINGTON POST,
9/15).
