MAJORS' FIRST WOMAN ANNOUNCER FIRED

Sherry Davis, the first woman public address announcer in major league baseball, will not be asked to return next season after seven years on the job with the San Francisco Giants.

Davis said she was told in November it was possible she might not be asked back, but hoped the team would change its mind.

But with the move to a new stadium next season, the team simply wanted a change, one official said.

"We know what Sherry can do," said Tom McDonald, senior vice president in the team's marketing department. "We listened to her for 81 games a year. We wanted someone with a richer voice quality, a more dynamic presence."

He said the team would name Davis' replacement next week.
