NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani took a private tour of Oriole Park at Camden Yards yesterday (N.Y. POST, 6/16)....In Baltimore, about half of the 100,000 square feet of SportGrass being laid at the Ravens' new stadium yesterday was transported by tractor trailers from Memorial Stadium (Baltimore SUN, 6/16). With two months remaining before the Ravens' stadium opens, the SUN's Jon Morgan writes an extensive report on the construction efforts (SUN, 6/15). ...In Pittsburgh, Fitzpatrick & Barnes wrote that Steelers President Dan Rooney's offer to contribute $50M toward a new football stadium "makes other teams in the Steelers' division look cheap by comparison." The Jaguars, Ravens, Bengals and Browns "contributed less, percentage-wise to the construction of projects in their cities." Only the Oilers will contribute more. If the Plan B project stays on budget, Rooney's ownership group will pay 21.5% of the total price for a new stadium (PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 6/15).
