Baltimore city officials notified Stallions Owner Jim Speros yesterday he must move his team's equipment out of Memorial Stadium, taking the first step to evict the CFL club in order for NFL franchise to move into the facility. Speros owes the city $73,000 in back rent and is the target of three city lawsuits, including one seeking a total of $575,000. Baltimore NFL officials say they will have to work out of their homes until space at Memorial Stadium can be cleared, as their temporary office lease runs out tomorrow (Michael James, Baltimore SUN, 2/29). OTHER NEWS FROM CHARM CITY: The AHL Bandits were bought by VA businessman Michael Caggiano. The deal still needs AHL approval. Caggiano purchased the club from former owners Bob Teck and Alan Gertner (Baltimore SUN, 2/29).
