In Toronto, Blue Jays season-ticket sales are expected to be around 22,000, "about the same or up slightly from last year." The team sold 26,000 season tickets when it won back-to-back World Series in '92 and '93. The team also does not expect to sell out its home opener (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 3/19)....In Cleveland, the Browns announced that more than 7,000 premium seats have been sold at the new stadium (AKRON BEACON JOURNAL, 3/19)....In Montreal, Canadiens officials "admitted yesterday that within the next year or two," the team could get an alternate third jersey (Montreal GAZETTE, 3/19)....Brewers Manager Phil Garner, on the White Sox: "We're not an event to them. See, that's the other reason I don't like them. [White Sox Owner Jerry] Reinsdorf sits in his ivory tower down there and he thinks his crap rolls into Milwaukee. They look down on us. That's the bottom line. I don't like that" (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 3/19).
