Interest in baseball Although the Twins future appears gloomy, Dave St. Peter, the team's senior vice president of business affairs, said the franchise's corporate partners have stuck with the organization.

"Since this whole contraction stuff has gone on, we've spoken to several of our corporate partners and actually have had a very, very good week with several corporate partners renewing, including Dodge, Great River Energy, Cargill, Treasure Island, Best Buy and Starter," he said. "All agreed to extensions for enhanced dollars."

In addition, St. Peter said Carrier, Old Country Buffet and Cargill signed up as new corporate partners this week.

Jottings Look for the University of Minnesota to announce any day that an NCAA investigation of the wrestling program didn't find any serious violations and that the program won't be penalized. One of wrestling coach J Robinson's biggest boosters is Gophers men's athletic director Tom Moe, who approves of the way Robinson runs his program.

Senior receiver Ron Johnson will have to enjoy a big day if the Gophers are to beat Wisconsin on Saturday at the Metrodome. As a freshman, Johnson caught nine passes for 100 yards against the Badgers. The following season, he was limited to only one reception for 38 yards. Last season, he had six catches for 111 yards but four turnovers proved to be the Gophers undoing in a 41-20 loss.

Former Minnetonka basketball star Adam Boone is getting a lot of criticism in North Carolina and is being used as an example of the Tar Heels' poor recruiting. ... Ball State, which upset Kansas and UCLA in back-to-back games in Hawaii this week, is coached by Bemidji State graduate Tim Buckley. Buckley, in his second season as Ball State's coach, was a two-year starter for the Beavers and coached at Bemidji State for two seasons before coaching at Rockford and assisting at Wisconsin and Marquette.

Wild Vice President of Communications and Broadcasting Bill Robertson said the Wild expect every home game to be sold out this season and have added a standing room rail area for all home games. Those tickets can be purchased on the day of the game. Prices range from $45.50 to $65.50. There are about 300 per game.

Former Gopher Courtney James has signed with the Dakota Wizards of the Continental Basketball Association. ... J.B. Bickerstaff, another former Gopher, failed to survive the cut for his tryout with a team in the new National Basketball Development League. ... The Minnesota athletic department paid the Harlem Globetrotters $60,000 to play the Gophers at Williams Arena earlier this month. The University of Minnesota Duluth was paid $15,000 to play at Williams Arena on Nov. 12. ... Chris Berenguer, the son of former Twins pitcher Juan Berenguer, is a sophomore at Eden Prairie High School and a member of the hockey team. ... Bob Reed, a running back who played for the Vikings in 1962 and '63, represents the National Guard Challenge program and is heavily involved in charities in the Albany, N.Y., area.
