In Boston, Peter Gammons wrote on the "huge" off-season facing Red Sox CEO John Harrington: "He has to get this ballpark thing squared away; those in the political circle believe he has blundered, and those in the development circle wonder about his ability to make a decision. He has to use every possible Disney/Fox rivalry to get meaningful TV dollars" (BOSTON GLOBE, 11/1)....The conservative think tank, Allegheny Institute for Public Policy, filed suit against the Regional Asset District Board to stop plans to partly finance two sports facilities in Pittsburgh. The suit claims the board "lacked the authority" to commit public funding toward the facilities (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 11/2)....The city of Cleveland has awarded SD-based Daktronics a $13.5M contract for two "giant scoreboards" at the new Browns stadium.
