NL'S NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK TO HOST ALL-STARS IN '98, 2000

     Reports in Denver and Miami confirm that the All-Star game
will be played at Coors Field in '98 and Joe Robbie Stadium in
2000.  Both cities bid for the '96 game and lost out to
Philadelphia (DENVER POST, 6/25).  In Miami, Susan Miller Degnan
reports that the game "would generate about $20 million for South
Florida over a three-day period" (MIAMI HERALD, 6/24).  The '99
game will be at an AL site.
          SMALLER COMMITTEE, SAME NAMES:  Red Sox CEO John
     Harrington, Rockies Owner Jerry McMorris and Royals CEO
     David Glass will make up MLB's labor negotiating committee
     when talks resume with players.  Harrington, on talks:  "I
     have a feeling we're a few weeks away.  It might be after
     the All-Star Game [July 11]" (AP/TORONTO STAR, 6/24).
     Following a report on the end of The Baseball Network, "ET"
     examined the low attendence.  Bret Saberhagen:  "We've got a
     lot of fans who have come out to Shea Stadium this year
     dressed as empty seats" ("ET," 6/23).
