The Major Soccer League headquarters will be moving to Baltimore Nov. 15, setting up shop in the Bank of Baltimore building on Baltimore Street.

MSL commissioner Earl Foreman will be in town for the Blast's season opener Saturday, to help play host to Graham Walker, Roy Redman and Richard Calicutt, three men actively involved in sports in Great Britain. They, along with the Blast's Ed Hale and Kenny Cooper, will discuss the possible expansion of Sheffield and Birmingham to the MSL.

* The Dallas Sidekicks signed former Blast midfielder/defender Richard Chinapoo yesterday, leaving them with one roster spot still available.

* Former Blast player and general manager Dan Counce, who spent the last year as GM of the St. Louis Storm and turned that franchise into a viable product at the ticket window, has left to become executive director of the St. Louis Olympic Festival.

* The Blast concluded its preseason work with an intra-squad scrimmage yesterday, the White team beating the Red, 9-5.

Mike Stankovic, who had the winning goal, and Ron Castro each scored three goals to pace the White. Waad Hirmez contributed two and Domenic Mobilio one. For the Red, Doug Miller, David Eise, Iain Fraser, Joe Koziol and Billy Ronson each had one.

* Blast goalkeeper Cris Vaccaro sat out practice with a touch of tendinitis and midfielder Mark Mettrick rested a hamstring strain.
