Abstract

During the early 1950s, St. Louis Browns’ majority owner Bill Veeck had financial problems. After his team finished eighth and 46.5 games behind the American League (AL) New York Yankees in the 1953 Major League Baseball (MLB) season but then denied by AL officials to relocate the Browns to the city of Baltimore, Veeck sold his club for $2.5 million to a syndicate representing an area in southeast Maryland. Then for $850,000 he also sold dilapidated Sportsman’s Park to August Busch, the wealthy owner of the National League (NL) St. Louis Cardinals.
