Denver and Miami were given formal approval Friday as the National League's expansion franchises and immediately began preparations for their 1993 debuts. Denver's team will be called the Colorado Rockies, and Miami's will be the Florida Marlins. They will be the first new major league teams since 1977 and the first new members of the National League since 1969. The unanimous decision of the 26 major league owners, who met by telephone conference call, was anticlimactic.

Reports identifying David Shula as the youngest head coach in the NFL's "modern era" are incorrect--unless 1962 isn't considered modern. Shula was 32 years 7 months when he succeeded Sam Wyche at Cincinnati Friday. But overlooked was Harland Svare, who was 31 years and 11 months when he became interim coach of the Rams in 1962. He became long-term coach soon afterward, shortly after turning 32. He was 35 when he was fired in December of 1965.

Toronto's $600-million SkyDome was the centerpiece of Tuesday night's All-Star game. President Bush and Canadian Prime Minister Mulroney watched from a luxury box. Audiences all over North America saw television cameras zero in on the SkyDome's retractable roof, built-in hotel, cafe and starched-linen restaurant in center field. But this diamond Disneyland is not such a novelty to some Toronto natives.

Major league baseball's ownership committee unanimously recommended approval of Denver and Miami as the National League's expansion teams on Wednesday as American League anger continued to surface. Oakland General Manager Sandy Alderson said he believed the AL should reject the $42 million it would get from expansion and not contribute players to the talent pool. "It's not worth it," Alderson said. "You get $3 million and look at what you're giving up.

The National League's expansion committee made it official Monday, announcing it has recommended Denver and Miami for 1993 membership.

Such is Lanark Park's unsavory reputation--cops call it the West Valley's biggest open-air drug bazaar--that any report from there about kids punching each other silly raises the obvious questions: 1) Does it involve crack? 2) Is it gang related? 3) Why aren't they using large clubs? But the other night--in an effort to show the park's virtues--kids were fighting for sport, not turf.

Denver and Miami all but clinched spots in the National League when the expansion committee recommended Monday that they join the league in 1993. The cities and owners still must be approved by the eight-man major league ownership committee and by both leagues. Approval is expected to be routine, although probably not this week. "They obviously were the two most attractive choices," Commissioner Fay Vincent said in Santa Monica, where owners are scheduled to meet Wednesday and Thursday.

With a spectacular mountain panorama filling the windows of a 43rd-floor conference room, Steve Ehrhart, sports entrepreneur, sat next to John Antonucci, a blunt-talking businessman. Two of the people leading Denver's effort to obtain a National League baseball expansion franchise, they were talking about the slight image problem their group seems to be having.
