TWINS AND MLB TO APPEAL JUDGE'S RULING IN ANTITRUST CASE

          The Twins and MLB have decided to appeal a ruling by a
     Ramsey County (MN) district judge which order MLB and Twins
     officials, along with prospective Twins Owner Don Beaver, to
     answer questions from the MN Attorney General's office and
     produce documents concerning the Twins' potential move to
     NC., according to Jay Weiner of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. 
     Weiner writes the antitrust case has "national implications."
     Today, lawyers for MLB, the Twins and Beaver will ask the 
     Judge to stay the execution of the ruling and order a speedy
     appeal to the state Court of Appeals "because of the
     importance of the case" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 5/8).
