MLB: The Reds said they would consider renovating Cinergy Field "in the unlikely event they can't strike a deal with Hamilton County for a new ballpark." Reds Managing Exec John Allen said "he fully expects to agree on a deal for a new ballpark," but added "if, for whatever reason, the deal couldn't work...yes, we would consider a renovation" (Geoff Hobson, CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 9/13). NAMING RIGHTS: AT&T is among the companies "that expressed interest" in acquiring naming rights to the Panthers' Sunrise arena (Barry Jackson, MIAMI HERALD, 9/14).
