GETTING STARTED: In Pittsburgh, Jeremy Boren reports work on the Penguins' new $290M hockey arena "will begin by mid-July, but the Penguins aren't planning to celebrate with a groundbreaking until August." The arena's owner, the Pittsburgh-Allegheny County Sports & Exhibition Authority, "authorized payments of $52.57[M] spread among five contracts to begin clearing part of the 28-acre site within three weeks and excavating land along Centre Avenue in the Hill District next month" (Pittsburgh TRIBUNE-REVIEW, 7/3).
TAKING THEIR TIME: While USA Basketball "had set a goal of announcing its future plans" for the location of its HQs by the end of the summer, Exec Dir Jim Tooley said that the organization "won't rush the decision." Tooley: "There are a lot of parameters to a move like this, so if we need to take a little more time, we'll do so." Louisville, Glendale, Arizona, and Colorado Springs -- the organization's current home -- all have offered proposals (Louisville COURIER-JOURNAL, 7/3).
FIELD OF DREAMS: Fields Inc. has been selected to install the field in the Twins' new ballpark. The company recently installed an upgraded natural playing surface at Lambeau Field (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 7/2).
