Blast schedules uncertain future


Blast vice president Drew Forrester will schedule the team's Baltimore Arena dates for the Major Soccer League's 1992-93 season today, but the MSL's future remains uncertain.

The owners may talk again Monday. In the meantime, MSL commissioner Earl Foreman remained in St. Louis where he has been since Monday, trying to keep the St. Louis Storm alive as the sixth team the MSL needs to continue.

Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, Ron Weinstein, former vice president ofthe MSL's now-defunct Los Angeles Lazers, announced the formation of the Continental Indoor Soccer League. Weinstein said the CISL will begin play next summer with teams in 10 major cities.

Among the owners are Jerry Buss of the LA Lakers; Jerry Colangelo of the Phoenix Suns, and Jim Thomas, an owner of the Sacramento Kings. Weinstein said he expects at least half the teams to be owned and operated by current NBA owners.

The Continental League is the second new indoor league to announce for next year. Two weeks ago, the Arena Indoor Soccer League said it will begin play in the spring.
