The Mission Bay Makos were supposed to be the next great U.S. swim club, but like the Mission Viejo Nadadores, they fell victim to the national real-estate decline in the late '80s. Unlike the Nadadores, who are thriving if not dominating, the Makos are extinct. Mark Schubert, originally hired away from the Nadadores as a consultant with a free hand to design his dream facility, was presented with one of those impossible-to-refuse offers by millionaire developer James Brady.

National League baseball owners, meeting here Tuesday, disapproved the relocation of the San Francisco Giants to St. Petersburg, Fla., meaning the team will definitely return to Candlestick Park in 1993 for its 36th season. Giants' owner Bob Lurie was prevented from voting and needed 10 of 13 votes to approve his $115-million agreement of sale to a group from the Tampa Bay-St. Petersburg area. But in the secret balloting, only four clubs voted in favor of the move and nine voted against it.

They come from teeming urban high schools in Miami and from towns that are dots on the map, where sugar cane is the lifeblood but high school football is the soul of the community. Florida is renowned for its citrus fruit and theme parks, but its most impressive product may be its blue-chip high school football players.

Because of the damage left by Hurricane Andrew in Homestead, Fla., the Cleveland Indians announced Thursday night the team will not hold spring training there next year. Homestead needs time to recover, Indian President Rick Bay said. "Provided that the area's physical facilities, such as housing and related amenities, and its economic base have recovered sufficiently to support our operations, we envision that Homestead will be our spring training home for 1994," Bay said.

Both National League franchises that will begin play in 1993 might be awarded to Florida cities, league President Bill White said during an expansion committee visit to Miami. The committee also traveled to Orlando and will visit St. Petersburg today. Other cities in contention for an expansion team--Denver, Buffalo and Washington--probably will be visited in March or April.

He could have gotten by on his catching ability alone, but Lance Parrish wasn't willing to settle for that. Healthy and happily adjusted to the Angels' organization, Parrish reversed his offensive decline in 1990 and produced his finest season since 1985. With a .268 average, 24 home runs and 70 runs batted in, Parrish showed his toughest critic that his skills hadn't eroded. "I proved something to myself," Parrish said.

Orange County's new hockey team could draft as high as fourth in the NHL's June draft, according to preliminary plans drawn up by the league's expansion committee. However, the league left open whether the Orange County-based team and the new South Florida team will enter the league for the 1993-94 season or in 1994-95. Earlier this month, the NHL awarded contingent franchises to the Walt Disney Co.

King owner Bruce McNall sounded giddy on the telephone from Florida, if that is possible at 2 a.m. In one unprecedented day, the NHL brought two huge conglomerates into its hockey family on Thursday. The Walt Disney Co. landed an Orange County expansion franchise and Blockbuster Entertainment secured a South Florida entry, each paying $50 million for the privilege.

Fifty million dollars can help put a club like the Tampa Bay Lightning on the ice in its first year of existence and make it an exciting, skilled team that even led the Norris Division for several days this season. Or, $50 million can get you the hapless Ottawa Senators, winners of three games.

The $10-million Breeders' Cup will be held in Florida for the first time in 1989, state Secretary of Commerce Jeb Bush announced Thursday. The 7-race event will be held at Hialeah Park or Gulfstream Park, both in the Miami area, on Nov. 4, 1989. A decision on the site will be made later. A third Florida track, Calder, did not make a presentation to the Breeders' Cup executive board, Bush said.

Major league owners will finally vote today whether to allow the San Francisco Giants to move to the Suncoast Dome in St. Petersburg, Fla. J. Rex Farrior, a member of the Tampa-St. Petersburg group that reached a $115-million agreement of sale with Giants' owner Bob Lurie on Aug. 7, expressed a measure of exasperation Monday and said it was certain there would be lawsuits if his group is rejected, which appears likely. "It's been like waiting for a jury," Farrior said.
