GIANTS SET TO BREAK GROUND ON PRIVATELY FUNDED PAC BELL PARK

          Groundbreaking ceremonies for the MLB Giants' new Pac
     Bell Park are scheduled for today at 12:00pm PT and in S.F.,
     Gerald Adams reports that Giants stars "past and present,"
     including Willie Mays, Dusty Baker and Barry Bonds will
     attend the ceremony for the $262M park.  In addition, those
     who have already bought PSLs park have been invited to a
     reception before the groundbreaking (S.F. CHRONICLE, 12/11).
          CAN'T BE TOO CAREFUL: In S.F., Eric Brazil reported
     that Giants ownership is buying insurance for $5-6M "against
     virtually every imaginable construction risk" that could
     delay Pac Bell's scheduled 2000 opening.  In addition to
     losses from natural disasters and labor strife, the policy
     also covers "dumb mistakes," such "as architectural design
     and engineering blunders" (S.F. EXAMINER, 12/10).
