TIGERS SEE PENDING LAWSUIT AS ONLY OBSTACLE TO NEW PARK

     Tigers President John McHale said one obstacle still faces
the prospect a new ballpark for the club -- a lawsuit filed by
the Tiger Stadium Club concerning a $55M grant from the Michigan
Strategic Fund that would go toward land acquisition.  McHale
said once the suit is resolved, "we can get going" (DETROIT NEWS,
3/21).  Both sides on the stadium issue say they will appeal the
decision to be released today by local Judge James Giddings on
the lawsuit, should they lose.  City officials have "said they
will seek an emergency bypass that would send the case straight
to the Michigan Supreme Court" (Valarie Basheda, DETROIT NEWS,
3/21).
