MLB NEWS: FINAL ATTENDANCE TO SEE AN INCREASE OF OVER 5%

          MLB final attendance for '97 "will show an increase of
     approximately" 5.6%, according to USA TODAY's Hal Bodley. 
     Acting Commissioner Bud Selig: "We're going to have the
     second-biggest year in our history."  In other news, Bodley
     notes that a possible compensation figure for teams involved
     in realignment could hit $10M.  But Bodley adds that while
     MLB's realignment committee thought "compensation might be
     the answer" during its recent owners meetings in Atlanta,
     the "concept lost momentum" (USA TODAY, 9/23).
