FRANCHISE NOTES

          Monday's crowd of 5,206 for the A's game against the
     Blue Jays was the team's smallest since it announced an
     attendance of 5,000 April 20 (S.F. EXAMINER, 5/5)....The
     sale of the NHL Oilers to the Edmonton Investors Group
     Limited Partnership was completed yesterday (NHL)....Mavs'
     Owner Ross Perot Jr. recently announced a restructuring of
     his real estate empire, "shuffling the lineup of top
     officers and consolidating some corporate divisions."  In
     Dallas, Miles Moffeit wonders where Hillwood Development
     Corp. Exec VP Frank Zaccanelli, who has "hammered out some
     of Perot's biggest deals," fits into the mix.  Real estate
     sources close to Hillwood say that Zaccanelli, "who has
     drawn sharp criticism for his hardball negotiating style,
     hot temper and misadventures in running the Mavericks, is
     leaving day-to-day operations of Hillwood" (DALLAS MORNING
     NEWS, 5/6)....The Indians' June IPO is examined by Scott
     Reeves of BARRON'S, who writes, "Indians' IPO investors
     should ask a basic question: What is the purpose of putting
     your money into [team Owner Richard] Jacobs' pocket?  If you
     view the stock certificate as a trophy to be displayed above
     your desk, it almost makes sense.  If you're interested in a
     real investment, look elsewhere" (BARRON'S, 5/4 issue).
