BASEBALL COULD STRIKE OUT AFTER ATLANTA

     Baseball could be out of the Olympics after this summer if
the IOC can't find a way to have MLB players participate in the
Sydney Games in 2000, according to the BOSTON GLOBE.  USA
Baseball Head Dick Case:  "If we don't get the pros like they do
in basketball, we have a chance of going down."  Case noted
Sydney is not "hot to trot" about baseball as they still have to
build a stadium.  The major problem for MLB is that the 2000
Games will take place in September, during pennant races (John
Powers, BOSTON GLOBE, 2/18).
