SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Saying he hopes to keep the matter out of the courts, Mayor Chuck Reed has requested a meeting with Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig to discuss the Oakland A's pursuit of a San Jose ballpark.

The San Jose Mercury News reports Reed sent a letter Tuesday asking for the sit-down.

Selig assigned a special committee four years ago to study the proposed A's move to San Jose. The San Francisco Giants have objected on grounds they relied on territorial rights to the San Jose area when they built AT&T Park, now in its 13th season.

San Jose officials already have approved environmental studies on a proposed ballpark near the HP Pavilion and Diridon rail station. A citizens group, Stand for San Jose, has sued the city, arguing the environmental review was inadequate.
