AUTRYS ASKING $130 MILLION FOR CALIFORNIA ANGELS

Jackie and Gene Autry have decided to sell the California Angels once baseball's labor dispute is resolved, and are asking $130 million, the Los Angeles Times said today.

"Gene loves baseball, but he's 87, and it's time for him to relinquish total control of the club," Jackie Autry said. However, only 23 percent of the club will be sold while Gene Autry remains alive, his wife said."I know I've said repeatedly that the club is not for sale, but it's come to a point where enough is enough," Jackie Autry said. "You can only take so much money out of your own pocket."
