GAMMONS PREDICTS INTERLEAGUE REALIGNMENT FOR BASEBALL
Published September 21, 1995
The results of the vote on financing for a new stadium for the Mariners will not be known until Monday, but regardless of any potential Mariners move, ESPN's Peter Gammons believes baseball will realign soon. Gammons reports that Montreal could possibly change to the AL East, with Detroit moving to the AL Central. In the NL, Gammons says MLB leaders would like to create a division with Kansas City or Texas joining Colorado and Arizona. The movement between leagues would create a rivalry between St. Louis and K.C. and Houston and Texas (Rudy Martzke, USA TODAY, 9/21). DC LOOKS TO WASHINGTON: In this morning's WASHINGTON TIMES, Thom Loverro reports that Virginia Baseball officials have had talks with Mariners ownership about the sale of the club (WASHINGTON TIMES, 9/21). Meanwhile, ESPN's Gammons predicts the Pirates will open next year at RFK Stadium: "I would be shocked if the Pirates weren't in Washington (D.C.) next year." Gammons says MLB's owners will show no support in blocking the move for O's Owner Peter Angelos, who takes 25% of his fan base from the DC area (USA TODAY, 9/21).
