  • FACILITY NOTES

              Pittsburgh Mayor Tom Murphy said that he and Allegheny
         County commissioners will present their "Plan B" for
         financing new stadiums for the Steelers and Pirates late
         this month or in early February.  The Urban Redevelopment
         Authority is already planning to acquire land for the new
         stadiums (Pittsburgh TRIBUNE-REVIEW, 1/5)....The Univ. of MD
         is close to completing negotiations with the MD Stadium
         Authority to play an October 31 home game next football
         season at the Ravens' new stadium.  The school would get
         approximately $800,000 before expenses (Baltimore SUN, 1/6).

  • MINNESOTA SET TO TAKE UP FINAL ACTION TO KEEP TWINS

              MN State Senator Roy Terwilliger said he expects to
         announce a new Twins stadium finance package next week which
         "would limit the stadium's cost to" $250M, include a
         community ownership component and rely on user fees,
         according to Weiner & Whereatt of the Minneapolis STAR
         TRIBUNE.  Weiner & Whereatt also report that MN's Attorney
         General's office has begun examining the legal means to keep
         the Twins in the state.  Lawyers in the office reportedly
         have been "contacting attorneys general in other states to
         brainstorm on possible actions to take against baseball's
         federal antitrust exemption" (STAR TRIBUNE, 1/6).
