FRANCHISE NOTES

          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).
