Detroit opens way for new park


Detroit Mayor Coleman Young and Wayne County Executive Ed McNamara announced a deal that would replace Tiger Stadium and keep the Tigers within the limits of Detroit.

* REDS: There won't be a ruling on the Rob Dibble case until next week because National League president Bill White hasn't had time to review a videotape of the controversial ball-throwing incident.

Dibble, who has been suspended twice this season, was ejected from a game for throwing a ball at Chicago Cubs base runner Doug Dascenzo on Tuesday night.

* ANGELS: Hoping Mike Marshall can avoid injuries long enough to help end their offensive doldrums, California signed the first baseman-outfielder to a minor-league contract. He will join the Angels for their next homestand, which will begin Aug. 2.

Meanwhile, Fernando Valenzuela, trying to return to the major leagues, moved up to the Class AAA Edmonton Trappers after a four-game rehabilitation stint with the Class AA Midland Angels.

* ASTROS: The sale of the team will not become a bidding war between local and outside interests unless potential owners agree to keep the team in Houston, commissioner Fay Vincent said in a letter obtained by a Houston radio station.
