NEW YANKEE STADIUM PROPOSAL ON THE TABLE

     "Eccentric real estate developer" Abe Hirschfeld has
proposed to build a new stadium for the Yankees, according to
Richard Sandomir in today's N.Y. TIMES.  The proposal calls for a
new stadium to be built "across from the current site" and for
Yankee Stadium to be turned into an Olympic Training Center and
public recreation center.  The plan also calls for a 15-story
hotel to be wrapped around the new stadium "between first and
third bases, with 300 suites looking down at the field" (N.Y.
TIMES, 2/14).
