MONTERREY, Mexico - In the eyes of Jose Maiz Garcia and others, this clean, modern city always has been "big league." The city's long love affair with baseball includes visiting Negro leagues' players in the 1940s, a Little League team invited to the White House and several home-grown youths now playing major league baseball. All that's missing here, they say, is a real major league team such as the Montreal Expos. "Monterrey always has been a great baseball city," said Maiz, owner of the local Sultans professional team and a star on a youth squad that was the first foreign team to win the Little League World Series in 1957.

The Major Indoor Soccer League will announce today that the San Diego Sockers and Monterrey (Mexico) Fury are out of business, sources close to the league said yesterday. The MISL will continue operating with seven teams. The league also will set a dispersal draft for San Diego and Monterrey players by Wednesday and answer questions about rescheduling and playoff formulas. MISL commissioner Steve Ryan did not return a phone call to his office yesterday, and the league's director of communications, Jaye Cavallo, said the league would have nothing definitive to say until today.

WESTPORT, Conn. - The Major Indoor Soccer League terminated its management agreement with Americas Entertainment Management S.A. de C.V., operator of the Monterrey Fury team, during an emergency session of its management committee yesterday. The Mexican indoor soccer franchise's 40-game schedule for the 2004-05 season has been canceled. The team's first game, against the Kansas City Comets, was scheduled for tomorrow. The now eight-team league said in a news release it is reviewing the impact the decision will have on its entire schedule.

The Major Indoor Soccer League seems poised to lose one or perhaps two teams in the coming weeks unless financial and managerial problems are resolved. In Baltimore, Blast owner Ed Hale said the San Diego Sockers are history and the Monterrey (Mexico) Fury could survive. "I believe San Diego has died an inglorious death because of a bad owner," Hale said. "Monterrey's owner told me today they will get in compliance with league rules. We'll see." The Sockers have no owner, and Monterrey has no arena in which to play home games.

The Blast defended its home turf for the first time in more than a month last night and repulsed a rival intent on payback. In the process, Baltimore (7-1) increased its first-place margin to two games over its closest pursuer, Monterrey La Raza, the losing team in last season's Major Indoor Soccer League championship game. Denison Cabral scored twice on penalty shots last night and added an assist as the Blast prevailed, 8-5, before an announced 6,840 at 1st Mariner Arena, improving its home record to 4-0.

The Blast squandered a six-point third-quarter lead and lost the opening game of the Major Indoor Soccer League semifinals, 22-14, to Monterrey La RaZa on Friday night. The teams will play Monday night at 1st Mariner Arena. If La RaZa win, they would face the Wave in the MISL championship game April 4. If the Blast wins, the teams would play a golden-goal mini-game Monday night for the right to advance. The Blast took a 4-0 lead on goals by Machel Millwood and Billy Nelson and led 8-2 after one quarter, but momentum turned in the second quarter when Baltimore forward Carlos Garcia was ejected from the match for violent conduct.

In 2003, the Baltimore Blast was on the verge of another frustrating "close, but no cigar" season when it trailed the Milwaukee Wave 12-4 early in the third quarter in the third and deciding game of the championship round. When defender Billy Nelson scored a 3-point goal, cutting the deficit to 12-7 with a good chunk of the second half remaining, the Blast had the opening it needed. Soon after, the team was celebrating an improbable 13-12 win in Milwaukee. Blast coach Danny Kelly, then a standout midfielder for the team, noted Nelson's goal as the starting point to something special.
