TIGER LAND: In Detroit, Joe Falls writes on the difficulty that Tigers Owner Mike Ilitch is having on completing the financing of the Tigers' new ballpark: "The consortium of 14 U.S. banks backed out of the deal, and now the financiers from Japan still haven't given Ilitch the money. This should tell you something about the financial structure of the Ilitch empire, which should tell you something about the sad state of the baseball team" (DETROIT NEWS, 8/13). The Tigers will post clips of construction at their new ballpark on www.detroittigers.com (Tigers). NOTES: The Lakers and NHL Kings announced their intent to build a combined practice facility in El Segundo, CA. Naming rights to the $15M, 120,000-square-foot complex will be sold (L.A. TIMES, 8/12)....Attorneys for the NFL Cardinals and the Rio Salado Crossing District met yesterday and will meet again today "in hopes of reaching a preliminary agreement" before the Mesa City Council makes its decision whether to put the stadium measure on the November ballot (AZ REPUBLIC, 8/13)....The Padres proposed ballpark measure will appear as Proposition C on the November ballot. Politicians and consultants say that being first on the ballot "is best because it gives backers first shot at voters' attention" (S.D. UNION-TRIBUNE, 8/12).
