GIANT STEPS TAKEN IN MINORITY HIRING IN SAN FRANCISCO

          On the eve of groundbreaking for their new Pac Bell
     Ballpark, the MLB Giants announced a minority hiring and job
     program yesterday which includes a proposal to pay
     "apprenticeship costs for disadvantaged young people who go
     into construction trades," according to Ramon McLeod of the
     S.F. CHRONICLE.  Giants VP Larry Baer also said that the
     team is setting aside 20% of the project work for minority-
     owned businesses and 10% for female-owned businesses.  The
     ballpark project is expected to create "more than" 2,500
     construction jobs.  Under the minority hiring plan, the club
     will pay for the "apprenticeship costs of 100 poor people
     who will enter job training programs" aimed at getting them
     jobs on the ballpark project (S.F. CHRONICLE, 12/4).
