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.
