A proposed move by St. Louis Browns owner Bill Veeck to move his team to Milwaukee is blocked by Boston Braves owner Lou Perini. Perini claimed he had territorial rights having their top farm club there. Two weeks later, it would be Perini himself making a move to Milwaukee, as he gets approval to move the Braves. The Braves are the first Major League Baseball team in 50 years to relocate.
