Trying to jump ahead of the NL‚ the AL admits Los Angeles and Minneapolis to the league with plans to have the new clubs begin competition in 1961 in the new 10-team league. Calvin Griffith is given permission to move the existing Washington Senators franchise to Minneapolis/St. Paul‚ MN. League president Joe Cronin says the AL will play a 162-game schedule‚ with 18 games against each opponent. The National League will balk‚ saying the two expansions are not analogous and that the AL was not invited to move into LA.
