FRANCHISE NOTES

          Thursday's paid crowd of 52,140 at 3Com Park for the
     Dodgers-Giants game was the Giants' largest since July 26,
     1994, and marked their first back-to-back crowds of more
     than 50,000 since July 26-27, 1994 (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS,
     9/19)....Walt Disney's ownership of the Angels is profiled
     by Stefan Fatsis of the WALL STREET JOURNAL.  Disney "has
     been frustrated by low attendance, failed marketing efforts,
     unbending ownership rules, and a team that, like Angels of
     yore, has faded down the stretch.  In un-Disney fashion, the
     team expects to lose around $15 million this season, on top
     of $12 million in 1996" (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 9/19).
