GIANTS MAY NOT MOVE TO FLORIDA AFTER ALL

Maybe the San Francisco Giants won't be moving to Florida, after all.

A San Francisco group will be allowed to present a counteroffer, and it will be considered equally with the plan to move the team to St. Petersburg, National League president Bill White said Wednesday."I have no preference," White said. "Whatever is best for baseball."

Giants owner Bob Lurie, frustrated by voter rejection of four ballpark proposals, announced Aug. 7 that he had agreed in principle to sell the team to Tampa Bay investors headed by Vincent J. Naimoli.
