TWINS MUST ANSWER TO ATTORNEY GENERAL ABOUT LAST SIX YEARS

          Ramsey County, MN, District Judge Margaret Marrinan
     ruled that MN's Attorney General "may ask questions and seek
     documents" from the Twins and MLB about events dating to '92
     to determine if the team and league execs violated antitrust
     laws, according to Jay Weiner of the Minneapolis STAR
     TRIBUNE.  Twins attorney Roger Magnuson was "unavailable for
     comment," but said last Friday that the team "would appeal"
     any initial ruling "allowing an investigation of any kind." 
     The Twins "also sought an expedited appeal" to the MN
     Supreme Court, which was denied by Marrinan.  The Twins and
     MLB "are expected" to take the case to the MN Court of
     Appeals.  Marrinan selected '92 as the cutoff date for the
     investigation "because that year a similar case was heard in
     Florida" (Jay Weiner, Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 5/12).
