And for the first time ever, teammates were 1-2-3 among starting pitchers in one league, with John Smoltz, Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine of the Braves outdistancing the rest of the National League. Belle had a 98.378 score out of a possible 100, just ahead of Chicago White Sox first baseman Frank Thomas (98.261) and Baltimore second baseman Roberto Alomar (96.703). Thomas and Houston's Jeff Bagwell tied for first last year, when they became only the third and fourth players to record 100s. Bagwell dropped to 95.833 this year. Rankings are based on statistics over two seasons and include figures such as plate appearances, batting average, on-base percentage, home runs and RBIs. The rankings, created in the 1981 strike settlement, are used to divide free agents into groups that determine draft-pick compensation for a player's former club if he signs with a new team. DENVER — Major League owners plan to meet in Chicago next Wednesday to either accept the latest proposed Basic Agreement, creating labor peace for the first time in four years, or set the stage for the most bitter labor war in baseball history. Interim Commissioner Bud Selig would say only "I'm still working on a meeting date," but a source close to negotiations said owners were informed Wednesday morning to make plans for next week's session. Ratification of the tentative agreement that management negotiator Randy Levine and union head Donald Fehr completed a week ago requires approval from 21 of the 28 major league teams. There are indications 14 teams favor approving the deal, with five strongly opposed. Nine teams are considered undecided, including the Milwaukee Brewers, who are owned by Selig. Basketball NEW YORK — Eight months from its opening tip-off, the women's professional league sponsored by the NBA awarded eight franchises Wednesday, with hopes of adding more once it establishes an identity. The four teams in the Eastern Conference are New York, Charlotte, Cleveland and Houston. Phoenix, Utah, Sacramento and Los Angeles make up the Western Conference. The WNBA will play a 28- gaine schedule beginning June 21. The eight-team league will be split into two conferences and will have a single elimination playoff format. Another women's league, the American Basketball League, started play earlier this fall. It is not affiliated with the WNBA and will not allow its players to compete in the rival league. NBC will broadcast a game every Saturday afternoon, and ESPN (Monday or Tuesday night) and Lifetime (Friday night) will each televise one game per week. The semifinals will be played Aug. 28, and NBC will televise the championship game Aug. 30. Boxing LOS ANGELES — A new opponent was found today for HIV-infected heavyweight Tommy Morrison, once-beaten Marcus Rhode. Anthony Cooks, who was scheduled to fight Morrison in Tokyo this weekend, was wanted by law enforcement authorities in Oklahoma and, according to promoter Ron Weathers, was on his way back to that state. Police in Okmulgee, Okla., issued a warrant for Cooks on Tuesday on a complaint he raped a 15-year-old girl Oct. 19. Rhode, 24, is 15-1 with 15 knockouts, according to the promoter. He is from St. Joseph, Mo. Football NEW ORLEANS — Baltimore owner Art Modell is anxious that NFL owners stick together and level the playing field for the poor franchises. Dallas owner Jerry Jones believes those clubs are getting enough help already. He's in favor of the old fashioned approach — free enterprise. Both men agree the NFL needs revenue sharing and leaguewide planning. They'disagree on how much the guys with big bankrolls should shell out for the poor folks in the league. "We have to dp something more in the way of revenue sharing to take care of the have-nots," Modell said during the NFL owners meeting on Wednesday, "I have no formula in mind. We're discussing it. The finance committee is discussing it, the planning committee, the stadium committee is discussing how we level the playing field. TMt was the intent of the NFL. That's what made the NFL great." LAKE FOREST, HI. — Bryan Cox met with doctors, went through a series of tests and then decided Wednesday to delay surgery on his broken thumb. That way he can play Sunday against Tampa Bay. After consultations with numerous specialists and despite the reservations of his wife and agent, Cox decided to play one more game. He'll wear a big cast to protect a thumb that tests show is broken in three places. LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Seven senior quarterbacks have been selected as finalists for the Johnny Uni- tas Golden Arm Award. The finalists announced Wednesday are Pat Barnes of California, Koy Detmer of Colorado, Jake Plummer of Arizona State, .Ron Powlus of Notre Dame, Steve Sarkisian of Brigham Young, Steve Schnur of Northwestern and Danny Wuerffel of Florida.
