New York Committee Pushes
for Third Major League by '6l;
Plan Faces Strong Opposition
By MAC mvm
Assistant Sports Editor
A third major league will begin operation in 1961. A committee,
set up by the mayor of New York, is pushing to reach this goal.
Plans call for eight teams which would play both National and
American League teams.
Some of the cities mentioned as possible sites for the teams in
the new loop are New York, Buffalo, Miami, Toronto, Montreal,
Denver, Indianapolis, San Diego, Dallas,'Ft. Worth, Houston, and
Los Angeles.
Not Enough Good Players
This proposed plan is faced with many problems. A major
drawbac 1 will be the lack of talented players to fill the eight new
teams. Critics of the new league point out that the present major
league set-up is having much difficulty in finding good players.
Where Will the new teams find the additional 200 players nec necessary
essary necessary to fill eight teams? If they draw from the present minor
league system, it will take much publicity to convince the fans
that the stars of the new loop are in the same class with Mantle,
Aaron, and Mays.
Lack of players is only one of the hurdles which the proposed
league will encounter. Other problems are (1) the difficulty in get getting
ting getting ball parks suitable for a major league team, (2) the question
of whether the new ball clubs will draw crowds adequate to sup support
port support the venture, and (S) lack of interest in a three-team world
Previous Third Loop Attempts
The move for a third league is not a new one. It was first tried
in 1890 when a players union, known as the Baseball Brotherhood,
organised the Players League. After a year of fighting with the
other two leagues, the new loop died out. Another attempt at es establishing
tablishing establishing a new league occurred in 1912 with the United States
League. This organisation didnt even last a full season.
Just a year later, the most significant third league plan was
enacted the Federal League. This was a six-club circuit which
was strongly backed by a number of wealthy men. By raiding the
other major leagues of players by means of huge salary offers, the
Federal League lasted through two seasons.
However, in 1916, after a thrilling pennant race in which the
Chicago Whales edged the St. Louis Terriers by % game, the Fed Federal
eral Federal loop ended in financial failure. In two years, the league had
managed to lose 812,000,000. The final act of the dead league was
to bring Organised Baseball into the Supreme Court with an anti antitrust
trust antitrust suit. This dragged on until 1922 when the court dismissed the
The new league Will have strong opposition to overcome. Much
cash will be needed to finance the ball clubs in the first years. It
will need backers who will not desert the clubs after one or two
losing seasons. Past examples of third leagues do not offer much
hope for the new proposal. Perhaps this attempt will gain the in interest
terest interest of the fans and become an accepted part of the baseball
Mustal And Williams Honored
As a part of the All-Star game activities, two of baseballs
superstars, Stan Musial and Ted Williams will be honored at a
special banquet.
Ironically, the two great hitters are having the first bad sea seasons
sons seasons of their long careers. Musial is hitting a meager .262, has hit
seven homers and driven in 29 runs. Williams is suffering from an
even poorer batting slump. He is batting .202, has knocked three
home runs, and has only 10 RBls.
Nearly all the fans I talk to are pulling for both stars to end the
season with a splurge which would bring their averages up. Musial
and Williams have lifetime batting averages which are among the
highest in the history of the game.
In trying to end their careers in a bright note, you can look
for both of them to be up among the outstanding hitters for the
second half of the season. At any rate, were hoping they do.
They arent the only players going through dismal seasons at
the plate. Cincinnatis Frank Thomas, usually a steady power hit hitter,
ter, hitter, is batting .238 and has only five home runs.
Other Stars In Slumps
Last years rookie of the year, Albie Pearson, is way down at
.219. Catcher Yogi Berra, of the Yankees, has slumped to .246 and
26 nms-batted-in. These are examples of the thing which at seme
time or another seems to plague every batter a slump.
Os course, batters arent the only ones who go through slumps.
Ask pitcher Bob Turley of the New York Yankees. Last year, at
this time, he had won 11 games and lost only three. He had an
earned run average of 2.37.
Turley is now suffering through a 9-7 record and has an ERA
of 4.46. I know Casey Stengel wishes Bullet Bobs blazing fast ball
would start burning again.
