2-C Wed. June 5. 1 985 The Billings Gazette B Baseball faces 'double-whamsny' Sideliners STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Baseball owners deliberately juggle their books to show losses or smaller profits and are giving players a false picture of the clubs' economic health, a Stanford University professor advising the players union said Tuesday. However, baseball is threatened by a "major financial shock" unrelated to the current negotiations between owners and players - a "double whammy" of two tax reform proposals, according to economics professor Roger G. Noll Noll also said the sport is being hurt by the current arbitration system and might be better off allowing all players to become free agents at the end of their contracts. The owners, who want to install team salary caps to control costs, have opened their books and shown overall losses of $36 millioa The owners also released a five-year forecast showing hundreds of millions of dollars in potential losses if current trends continue. Both those evaluations are flawed, said Noll, adding that a truer measure of the clubs' financial health is the recent selling prices of franchises from $25 million to $75 million. "The key question is what actually is the financial reality of baseball rather than what do the books show," he said. "The books are arranged to make certain that the corporate entity doesn't show a profit or too much of a profit." The owners do this legally, the same way many other businessmen arrange their books, he said. "Nobody allows a closely held corporation to show big profits; it's simply not the way things are done," Noll said. Among the ways owners reduce their profits on paper is by including interest payments on loans from their other businesses, writing in high salaries to themselves and depreciating player salaries, Noll said. Lee MacPhail, the owners' chief negotiator, was in a meeting and unavailable for comment Tuesday in New York. Last week, however, he said, "The clubs believe there is a very serious problem and feel something has to be done about it. We can't seem to get that message across to the players' association." In a letter to the players' union, Noll explained how teams are allowed to "amortize a large fraction of the purchase price of the team to reflect the depreciation of the skills of the original roster of players. "The effect is to give teams a large, annual non-cash expense that can be deducted for the purposes of calculating taxable income." Mariners offered three years rent free SEATTLE (AP) Seeking "an opportunity to succeed" in Seattle, Mariners owner George Argy-ros, who lives in Newport Beach, Calif., has proposed selling up to 35 percent of his interest in the American League baseball club to local parties. The proposal is part of the Mariners effort to get King County, owner of the Kingdome, to defer rents through 1987 unless game attendance increases. County Executive Randy Revelle rejected the proposal Tuesday, countering with an offer of three years of free rent as part of an $8 million deal to help the American League team. "The financial problems of the Mariners go far beyond the Kingdome lease," Revelle said. "We're going to do everything we can everything we can afford to do to help the Mariners stay in town." Mariners President Chuck Armstrong said he would consider Revelle's proposal and talks over changing the stadium lease could resume later this week. Baseball s with -romim- The Associated Press Slump-ridden Dwight Evans celebrated his return to the lineup with a home run and Rich Gedman extended his hitting streak to 14 games with an RBI double Tuesday, leading Boston to a 54) victory over Cleveland. Southpaw Bobby Ojeda, making his second start since being recalled from fulltime duty in the bullpen, blanked the Indians on six hits for seven innings and earned his third victory in four decisions with relief help from Steve Crawford.

Horse gets used pacemaker A 9-year-old horse with a heart condition that caused the animal to faint in his stall has returned to show competition after receiving a pacemaker designed for humans. Call Me Buckie, believed to be the only horse in the world with a permanent pacemaker, failed to win a single ribbon at the Devon (Pa.) Horse Show last weekend but easily cleared the low jumps. The chestnut quarter horse competed in two events accompanied by noisy cheers from a contingent from the New Bolton veterinary center, where the animal received the device in an experimental operation in March. The device was donated by the widow of a Pennsylvania man who had used it for two weeks before dying of respiratory complications.

I-AA championship moved to Tacoma TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - The National Collegiate Athletic Association will move its 1985 and 1986 Division I-AA national championship football games from Charleston, S.C., to the Tacoma Dome, it was announced Tuesday. The annual game, to be played Dec. 21, will be renamed the Diamond Bowl, it was disclosed at a news conference. The game will be played in the afternoon because of the possibility of national television coverage. However, television contracts have yet to be signed. "We've heard nothing but good comments about the Tacoma Dome," Jerry Miles, NCAA director of special events, said in a telephone interview. "It appears to be a great facility. We'd like to find a permanent home for the I-AA championship game." Final approval must be made either by the NCAA's executive committee, which doesn't meet until August, or the administrative committee, which may approve the staff recommendation as early as this week. The game has been played in Charleston the last two years. The first year, 1983, produced a record crowd for the game 15,950 largely because nearby Western Carolina played Southern Illinois. But last year's game between Montana State and Louisiana Tech, won by MSU 19-6, produced a crowd of only 9,125. That prompted Charleston bowl officials to seek renegotiation of their NCAA contract.
