George Brett's interest in the Royals is "teetering"
     but that "shouldn't be interpreted as throwing in the towel. 
     Not yet," according to Jeffrey Flanagan of the K.C. STAR. 
     Brett: "Two years ago, trying to buy the Royals was very
     appealing.  Very appealing.  But now?  I don't know.  Let's
     just say it is less appealing than it was.  Am I interested? 
     Yes.  As interested as I was?  No."  If Brett's group is to
     become "a serious contender to buy the club, Brett said it
     would need a big-time investor" such as Gateway 2000 Founder
     Ted Waitt, who is among those included in his potential
     ownership group.  However, Brett has not spoken to Waitt or
     anyone else from his ownership group for "some time" (K.C.
     STAR, 10/1).  In other news, the Royals increased ticket
     prices $1 across the board, their first increase in five
     years.  Tickets are now $6-15. The team also created a new
     ticket category, youth general admission, which sells for $3
     a ticket to fans 14 and younger.  Parking also increased $1,
     up to $6 a game (Dick Kaegel, K.C. STAR, 10/1).
