POTENTIAL CARDINALS OWNERSHIP GROUP IN FINAL NEGOTIATIONS

     One potential investor says a group led by several St. Louis
businessmen is in final negotiations to buy the Cardinals,
according to the ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH.  The group includes
Southwest Bank Chair Andrew Baur, Hunter Engineering President
Stephen Brauer, and William DeWitt, Jr. of Cincinnati, whose
father once owned the St. Louis Browns and then the Cincinnati
Reds.  DeWitt owned 15% of the Reds until '68, was a partner in
the Orioles, and is now a part owner in the Rangers.  Baur said
they are "close to a deal" and that the team would "absolutely"
stay in St. Louis (O'Neil & Hummel, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH,
12/22).
