Senators may desert capitol;
Twins rumored on block
By The Associated Press
" DETROIT - All 12 owners of American League teams huddled
yesterday over the financial woes of the Washington Senators with
some discussion centering on a possible transfer of the team to
Senators' owner Bob Short told newsmen during a luncheon recess
that he had lost what he called "a substantial amount" since he paid
$9.5 million for the team two years ago.
Asked about the numerous rumors that a move of his franchise
to Dallas was imminent, Short replied, "I do not want to move to
Dallas . . . I never wanted to . . . I never intended to but that doesn't
mean I won't move it."
* ST. PAUL-MINNEAPOLIS - The public relations director of
the Minnesota Twins said yesterday the American League baseball
club "will not be sold, under any circumstances."
A Minneapolis sportscaster Hal Scott of WCCO-TV, reported
Tuesday night that the Minnesota team was for sale "if the price is
right." Scott added that the "right price," in the view of President
Calvin Griffith, "is $11 million."
" NEW YORK - Alex Johnson. the controversial outfielder sus-
pended by the California Angels, said yesterday if he were the base-
ball commissioner "I'd try to find out why I was suspended-I'd like
to know if they were justified.
"I had justifiable reasons for not being in the spirit for playing
properly. There was indifference on the whole team in working to-
gether. I felt the game of baseball wasn't being played properly-so
my taste wasn't there."
At the same time, the Major League Players Association said it
was preparing to file a grievance, either with the Angels or the
Owners' Player Relations Committee, questioning Johnson's sus-
D DETROIT - Owner Gene Autry of the California Angels made
it plain yesterday that he would like to trade his temperamental
suspended star outfielder Alex Johnson but he added, "We are not
going to trade the American League batting champion for a nobody."
The former movie-television star, in Detroit for a meeting of AL
club owners, said in a brief interview that he thought Johnson would
be better off with another ball club.
* HOUSTON - Atlanta Braves slugger Hank Aaron says he
plans to check into a hospital after the season ends for treatment of a
knee ailment.
Aaron, who has been bothered by a constant swelling in his left
knee since spring training, says he wants to "see why this fluid keeps
coming back. My knee was starting to balloon up again last night"
