Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Major League Baseball relocation of 1950s-1960s is the move of several Major League Baseball franchises to the Western and Southern United States. This was in stark contrast to the early years of modern baseball, when the American League intentionally put teams in National League cities to compete directly with those teams. Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, and St. Louis were two-team towns, while New York City had three. This effectively had baseball confined to the Northeast and Midwestern United States, with no teams west of St. Louis and no teams south of Washington, D. C.show more
