MLB INTERNATIONAL: ALL-STARS HEAD TO LAND OF RISING SUN

          A team of MLB All-Stars will travel to Japan this
     November to play a series of games against Japanese teams.
     The '98 tour will consist of eight games played between
     November 6-15 in Tokyo, Fukuoka and Osaka, Japan.  MLB All-
     Stars will play seven games against a team of Japanese All-
     Stars, and play one against the Yomiuri Giants.  All games
     will be broadcast live in Japan on Nippon TV.  The MLB All-
     Star participants will be announced later this summer.  The
     MLB team toured Japan most recently in '96 (MLB).
          TELL IT TO THE KING: Acting MLB Commissioner Bud Selig
     had no comment regarding a report on Monday by Larry King
     that Selig would be named permanent commissioner by year's
     end.  Selig: "I have made my feelings very well-known for
     six years" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 5/12).
