     Angels Owner Jackie Autry said this weekend that she and her
husband, Gene, don't "have the stomach to deal" with the
"pressures" of baseball and will sell a minority interest in the
team to former MLB commissioner Peter Ueberroth.  The labor
dispute, "media criticism," and the "rising cost" were among
Autry's reasons.  Jackie Autry:  "If I could just be an owner and
deal with what happens between the white lines, it would be a
perfect world."  Ueberroth is in the process of buying 25% of the
team with an option to buy the remaining 75% upon the death of
Gene Autry, 87.  Ueberroth will also take over as managing
general partner and handle the day-to-day operations of the club.
Autry attended her first exhibition game on Friday and said she
"wasn't particularly thrilled about seeing replacement players"
(Mike DiGiovanna, L.A. TIMES, 3/26).
