DECISION ON GIANTS SHOULD COME SOON

The chairman of baseball's ownership committee said his group expects to make a recommendation soon on the proposed move of the San Francisco Giants to St. Petersburg, Fla. Fred Kuhlmann of the St. Louis Cardinals wouldn't specify, but others said a decision could come within two weeks. A group led by Vincent J. Naimoli has offered to buy the team from Bob Lurie for $115 million - of which $10 million would be loaned back by Lurie.
