SEEK 1NCREASK While the owners originally stood pal on their onc-aml-only health-care offer, tlie players were seeking a 17-per- cent cosl-of-living increase in retirement benefits, which would have amounted to more than SGOO.OflO. The owners have offered to pay the players for lost games rescheduled on open dates or as part of a duy-niglit double- header, but not for games made up as part of a ono-admission doiiblchcadcr. The players rejectee) lhal and countered by offering to give up one day's pay (they arc paid on o basis of iaa days rather than 1G2 The owners turned Uiot down. Next, the players offered to play make-up games in one-ad- mission twin bills for half pay. The owners rejected Ibat, too.
