In recent years, there was talk of a team of American League based in Los Angeles. In 1940, the St. Louis Browns of asking owners of the league to move to Los Angeles but their motion is denied. They will get for the 1942 season but the bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941 meant that all leagues west coast were inviable. In 1953, again discussed moving the Browns to Los Angeles for the 1954 season but the team was sold and partly to Baltimore in place of the Orioles. There were still discussions with the Washington Senators and then the rumor of the departure of the Philadelphia Athletics to Kansas City that would have ended the Los Angeles destination.
Finally it is the National League who came first in the city as the Brooklyn Dodgers. Dodgers owner Walter O’Malley purchased the Los Angeles Angels of the League of the Pacific coast in early 1957 the owners of the Chicago Cubs, Phil Wrigley. According to the rules in force at the time, he also acquired the rights to the team from Los Angeles Major League where he moved the Dodgers the following year. Normally this would not have ruled out any presence of a team in the Greater Los Angeles. However to prevent if the Continental League would become reality in 1960 the two existing leagues agreed to add each of the two teams in each league. However this agreement was soon broken when the National League placed a team in New York (the Mets) as its tenth franchise, the AHL announced a plan to install a team in Los Angeles that could begin play in 1961.
