FACILITY NOTES

          The USTA signed an eight-year agreement with Restaurant
     Associates to provide all restaurant, catering and
     concession services at the USTA National Tennis Center and
     the U.S. Open (USTA)....Because construction of their new
     stadium won't be completed until September 17, the Bucs will
     start the '98 season with seven road games, five preseason
     and two regular season (ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 3/8).....The
     Brewers have banned smoking in the seating areas of County
     Stadium.  Smoking will be restricted to certain concourse
     and catwalk areas (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 3/6)...The
     Angels are "constructing an actual-size infield" at the
     entrance plaza to Edison Field with "green and orange bricks
     substituting for grass and dirt."  For a $75 donation to the
     Angels' charitable foundation, the team will inscribe a
     name, a company name, or a personal message on one of the
     bricks.  The team "hopes to raise" $500,000 for local
     charities through sale of the bricks (L.A. TIMES, 3/7).
