  • PADRES TASK FORCE SEES CENTRE CITY AS BEST SITE FOR BALLPARK

              After "months of consideration," the Padres Task Force
         on Ballpark Planning has designated Centre City East in
         downtown San Diego as "the prime site for a new baseball-
         only stadium," according to Barry Bloom of the SAN DIEGO
         UNION-TRIBUNE.  The committee's report is "expected to be
         approved by the 18-member citizens task force today."  The
         report "does not go into detail" about how to pay for the
         park, but recommends that no new sales or property tax money
         is used.  Padres President Larry Lucchino called the site
         selection a "giant step forward" in the process, and that
         the team is now "committed to building a ballpark on the
         Centre City East site" (Barry Bloom, UNION-TRIBUNE, 1/29).

  • TORONTO EXEC CALLS LEAFS' BLUFF ON EXHIBITION PLACE

              Toronto councillor Dennis Fotinos said that he and "a
         growing number of his colleagues believe" the Maple Leafs
         "do not intend to go through with their plans to build an
         arena at Exhibition Place," according to David Shoalts of
         the Toronto GLOBE & MAIL.  Fotinos called the site "a
         bargaining tool" for the Leafs to become partners with the
         Raptors at Air Canada Centre.  Leafs VP Tom Anselmi, who
         heads the arena project: "This is the site we want to build
         on."  Due-diligence ends February 28 (GLOBE & MAIL, 1/29).
