Astros Sale Held Up

NEW YORK (AP) - Major League Baseball has postponed a vote to

approve the proposed sale of the Houston Astros from Drayton McLane

to Jim Crane.

The $680 million agreement was reached May 16, and owners had

anticipated a vote when they meet Thursday in Cooperstown.

The commissioner's office said Monday "the standard due

diligence that must be completed before any transaction of this

magnitude can close remains ongoing."
