HE'S ODDO-THERE: K.C. EXEC DROPS OUT RACE FOR ROYALS

          K.C. business exec Frank Oddo and his group of local
     investors have "dropped out of the bidding" for the Royals,
     according to Charles Crumpley of the K.C. STAR.  Oddo said
     yesterday that his group was interested in buying the team
     six months ago, but the Royals were not interested in
     selling then and members of his group "have invested their
     money elsewhere since then."  Oddo's departure leaves two
     publicly known groups interested in making a bid: one led by
     K.C. banker and car dealer Jerry Green, and a second led by
     George and Bobby Brett and Bill Pereira Jr.  Royals
     President Mike Herman said that other unnamed groups also
     have expressed interest in making a bid (K.C. STAR, 10/10).
