Expansion Fever

After the addition of the Los Angeles (now California) Angels and Washington Senators to the American League in 1961, and the New York Mets and Houston Colt .45s (now Astros) to the National League in 1962, Major League Baseball called for a further four-team expansion at the 1967 Winter Meetings. However, there was a complication: Missouri Senator Stuart Symington was irate over the seemingly shady deal to permit Kansas City Athletics owner Charles O. Finley to move his team to Oakland, California for the 1968 season. This happened even though Finley had just signed a new deal to play at Municipal Stadium at A.L. president Joe Cronin's behest, and Jackson County, Missouri, had just issued public bonds to build a new stadium, the future Kauffman Stadium.

Senator Symington drew up legislation to remove baseball's anti-trust exemption, and threatened to push it through if Kansas City did not get a new team. The Office of the Commissioner complied, and the American League agreed to put one of its new franchises in Kansas City.

A consortium led by Dewey Soriano and William Daley, the later of whom once tried to move the Cleveland Indians to Seattle, won the bidding for the Seattle Franchise, and named it the Seattle Pilots.

As part of the expansion, each league was to be split into two divisions of six teams, and each league would have a new playoff level--the best-of-five American League and National League Championship Series.

In a year marked by the Mets' miracle World Series run, both the Padres and Expos finished with 110 losses and at the bottom of their respective divisions. The Royals did better, finishing 69-93 and in fourth in the A.L. East. Even though the Pilots managed to avoid losing 100 games (they were 63-98), financial trouble would lead to a wrangle for team control, ending with bankruptcy and the sale of the team to Bud Selig and their move to Milwaukee for the 1970 season. The legal fallout of the battle would lead eventually to the expansion for the 1977 expansion.

Events

  • March 16 - A plane crash in Maracaibo, Venezuela kills 155 passengers including Carlos Santeliz, the Venezuelan League Rookie of the Year, on his way to the Braves' spring training camp. Another fatality is Néstor Chávez, en route to the Giants' camp. Chávez (1-0) was 12–5 with Double-A Waterbury in the Eastern League (1967), including seven shutouts. Pablo Torrealba was also scheduled to take the flight, but missed it and took a later one.
  • May 1 - The Houston Astros, no-hit the day before by Jim Maloney of the Cincinnati Reds, answer back as Don Wilson pitches a 4-0 no-hitter, with 13 strikeouts over the Reds. Houston ties a National League record with just one assist. In Wilson's previous start against Cincinnati, on April 22, he gave up six runs in five innings in a 14-0 loss. The back-to-back no-hitters are only the second in Major League history, the feat having been accomplished just the year before by Gaylord Perry and Ray Washburn.
  • July 8 - With three runs in the 9th inning, the New York Mets beat the Chicago Cubs 4-3, cutting Chicago's lead in the National League East to four games. Chicago's Ron Santo rips into center fielder Don Young for two misplays in the outfield; Santo apologizes the next day for criticizing Young, who had left early and didn't take the team bus. Santo is later booed in his first game back at Wrigley Field.
  • August 14 - In the National League Eastern Division, the Chicago Cubs lead the St. Louis Cardinals by 8.5 games and the New York Mets by 9.5 games. The Mets win 38 out of their next 49 games, and the Cubs finish the season 8 games behind the Mets.
  • September 24 - After 7 uninspired losing seasons, the New York Mets clinched the National League East title as Donn Clendenon hit 2 home runs in a 6-0 Mets win over the St. louis Cardinals.
