CITY/TEAM OFFICIALS SEE THE AEROS OF THEIR WAYS, INK DEAL

          The AA Aeros have signed a lease agreement with the
     city of Akron that "ends months of bickering between Aeros
     owner Mike Agganis and city officials," according to
     Charlene Nevada of the AKRON BEACON JOURNAL.  While terms
     were not released, a tentative deal reported earlier said
     Agganis would pay the city $1.1M over three years and agree
     to sell "cheaper bleacher tickets for all games, even if not
     all of the reserved seats had been sold out."  Agganis "got
     some of what he wanted, including more leverage to put up
     advertising and permission for auxiliary billboards."  Last
     year, the Indians AA team set an Eastern League attendance
     record by drawing over 470,000 (BEACON JOURNAL, 1/22).
