              The Astros have retained NJ-based Integrated Sports
         Int'l (ISI) for new business development in sponsorship
         sales, marketing and strategic consultation.  ISI will work
         in conjunction with the team in identifying and developing
         strategic marketing programs for corporate partners, both at
         the Astrodome as well as the new ballpark, which is slated
         to open in Downtown Houston in April 2000.  In addition to
         the Astros, ISI also serves as a marketing rep to the 49ers, 
         Angels, Broncos, Pacers and Chargers among others (ISI).

              On Long Island, James Bernstein reports that N.Y.
         Sports Ventures Owners Howard Milstein and Steven Gluckstern
         "are stepping up a behind-the-scenes campaign to gain
         control of a multimillion-dollar contract to manage a new
         Nassau Coliseum," and are "said to be seeking to oust" PA-
         based SMG, which has the management contract through 2015. 
         In addition, the Coliseum's GM Lance Elder has resigned, and
         a replacement search is underway (NEWSDAY, 5/19)....In San
         Antonio, Poling & Orsborn reported that expanding Freeman
         Coliseum to fit 20,000 people and 78 luxury suites would
         cost up to $109M, a figure Freeman board members "find
         staggering and that could prompt the county to instead build
         a new arena" for the Spurs (SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS, 5/16).
