Albuquerque grabs PCL Division pennant

Raptors seeking major affiliation

OGDEN - Raptors president Dave Baggott is seeking a major league affiliation for his Pioneer League baseball team before the end of this month.

"Right now, I've made contacts with a number of (major league) ballclubs," Baggott said. "It's not going to be easy, and there are no guarantees. But it's something we want and so we're going after it as hard as we can."

He said there are advantages to operating a non-affiliated club, such as the ability for management to chose its own players and field staff. But Baggott said an independent team also is expensive.

Affiliated clubs are supported by their major league "parent club," while teams like the Raptors must meet all financial burdens themselves.

It is believed that after just one season the Raptors are on solid ground.

It's getting tall in Philadelphia

The Philadelphia 76ers are among six teams interested in giving former center Ralph Sampson another chance at resuming his once-promising career.

Sixers general manager John Lucas said the 7-foot-4 Sampson will be in Philadelphia for two days of workouts beginning Sept. 28. Lucas will decide whether to invite Sampson to training camp after the workouts.

"We'll bring him in for a look - just to look and see," Lucas said.

Sampson, 34, was riddled with knee injuries in the late 1980s and has not played in the NBA since the 1991-92 season, when he struggled to get up and down the court with Washington.

If Sampson sticks with the Sixers, he would back up 7-foot-6 center Shawn Bradley.

Suns sign Manning

PHOENIX - Danny Manning signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Phoenix Suns, accepting 20 percent of his market value to join one of the NBA's highest-profile organizations. See story, D2.
