STATEMENT BY IVAN ALLENJ JR o, MAYOR OF ATLANTA
The B r ave s are to be congr.atulated on making a brave decision
...
t o petit ion t h e National League to move their franchise to Atlanta.
They have chosen to make the
11
national pastime 11 truly national,
to g i ve t h e 24 million people who live in these seven Southeastern States a
share in the major leagues,
The peopl e of Atlanta, with their courage in building an $18, 000, 000.
Stadium to attract a major league team are also to be congratulated,
They
r epresent the n e w, dynamic south, which is no longer willing to be side-lined
on the back benches.
Our Stadium is a southern project, built on southern soil, with
southern money , by southern architects and contractors.
We feel i t is uniquely fitting that this decision has been made today,
a date which marks almost exactly the centennial of the day when Atlanta
w as le ft an a s h str e wn ruin, symbol of a region's defeat.
Today we we lcome the opportunity to become a symbol of southern

A WORLD-WIDE PUBLIC RELATIONS SERVICE
November 2, 1964 - Chicago, Illinois
615 Peachtre e Street, N. E. Atlanta, Georgia 30308 • Phone 872-9592
The Braves 1 baseball club today filed Answer in Federal Court in Milwaukee, charging
that Milwaukee County, not the Braves, breached the lease which Milwaukee County
claims requires the Braves to play in Milwaukee in 1965.
Braves' Answer says that although the lease runs until December 31, 1965, it had a.n
implied covenant that the County of Milwaukee would not interfer with, obstruct or
frustrate the Braves enjoyment of the lease.
The Answer asserts that in malicious
disregard of such covenant, Eugene Grobschmidt, Chairman of the County Connnissioners of Milwaukee County, broadcast
public statements implying that persons of re-
sponsibility in the Braves' management were deliberately trying to have the Braves
not win games.
Additionally the Answer charges that the county faile d to protect
the Braves against ticket speculators operating on Stadium premises, and failed in
its committment to "make up" to the Braves for f ailures of season ticket sale s and
radio and TV income.
The Brave s ' Answer asserts that by thes e various breaches, the County of Milwaukee
deprived the Brave s of its l awful rights and r elieved it from any furthe r performance under t he l eas e .
The Answer recit e s that t he Braves' 1963 s ea son r esulted in a loss in excess of
$800, 000 under accounti ng methods approved by t he Internal Revenue Service and t hat
attendance figure s show t hat Braves attendance has dropped f rom 2,21 5, 000 in 1957
to 773,000 in 1963 and 910,000 in 1964 and alleges that 85% of the increase between
1963 and 1964 came about be cause Braves, in an effort to offset the disparagement
of it by county officials and other s, sold 119,000 tickets at reduced rates.

�ADDITION - BRAVES' ANSWER
In explaining the Braves' desire to move to Atlanta, Georgia the Answer says: "A
professional baseball team cannot fulfill the avowed purpose of the League to perpetuate baseball as the national game of the United States unless it is self-sustaining and profitable; that it is essential that a professional baseball team be
able to compete with other professional athletic endeavors in acquiring skilled
players at attractive rates of compensation; that the reduced attendance figures set
forth above, and necessarily increasing costs, will result in a substantial loss ••••
for the current season.
Defendant shows that for the foregoing, among other reasons ~
and because Atlanta, Georgia is the hub of the southeastern portion of the country
and reasonably is believed to have many sports enthusiasts who will s~pport this
Defendant rather than revile and frustrate it as Plaintiff has, its directors,
exercising their j udgl:1lent in the premises, arrived at the reasonable conclusion that
the best interest of the sport and this Defendant would be served by moving to
Atlanta".
Braves further takes the position that it is relieved of all obligations t o Milwaukee:
County, but that if the CoLirl holds otherwise, it is able to pay the $175,000 which
the county has estimated it will receive i _n prospective rental payments in t he year
1965.
It asserts: "That the successful playing of professional baseball is more
n:cm a mere business or mechanical matter; that a professional baseball team cannot,
and should not, be required to play in the face of public antipathy and hostility to
them or their management; that a court of equity will not enforce professional
servitude under such conditions".
Braves' president John J'. ~icHale said: "We had hoped to be able to stay in Milwaukee
but the events of 1964 have made it impossible.

�SUGGESTIONS FOR GRAPHIC PRESENTATION
TO NATIONAL LEAGUE OWNERS
I. Population - The idea here is to show them the rapid growth of
Atlanta, the city's position as the population
center of the Southeast, and the center of a vast,
untapped audience potential for major league baseball.
a. Chart showing population growth of 5-county metro area
s i nce 1930 (or earlier, if desired); r esearch figur es
a l r e ady compiled, chart . to be done .
b. Map showing population density; radii to illustrate
audience potential within 100 miles, 200 miles, .. etc. ;
res e arch figure s available (Henson), a lso S. E. 0·ut l ine
maps for use in making the map.
c. Map showing Atlanta as population center of Southeast;
14 per cent of nation's population in 9 per cent of
land area, with Atlanta at the hub . (Mi ght want to include on this map or s eparately a chart p r oj ecting
population growth of Southeast t o 1976 and 2000)
II . Buying p ower - The idea is to show that Atlanta people bring
home enough mone y to afford baseball t i ckets ,
and the s i tuation is improvi ng a ll the t ime.
a. Chart t o show increase in Geo r g ia ' s per c apita inc ome,
re late d t o othe r cities ( Pitt s bur gh~ fo r one ) , Southeast a nd national average .
b . Chart showing increas e in re ta i l s a l es, proving tha t
the money being earned i s be i n g spent (but indic a ting
Erosp e r ity rather than how much would be l e f t f or
tickets to t he ba ll p ark ) .
III. Access i bilit y - The idea i s to show Atlanta ' s conve nience to
ot her cities (part icular ly b ig l eague c ities)
and acce s s ibility t o the s tad i um by way of
interstat e system.
a. Map showi ng air r out es t o "national " citie s (which just
happen to be 9 Nat ional League cities), with "funnel"
sort of graphic effect showing number of daily flights
between each city and Atlanta; road distance and flying
time to each city shown e lsewhere on map.
�N. L. OWNERS -- 2
b. Map showing same information for 10 other "national"
cities (but these happen to be the 10 American League
cities).
IV. "Virgin territory"
Idea is to show Atlanta as the cehter
of the biggest single region, except
the great Northwest, without a major
league sports team.
a. Map showing just that -- the simpler the better -yet illustrating that Atlanta is not isolated, as West
Coast cities are; for example, Cincinnati is the closest
major league city (454 road miles - 1 hr. 6 min. by air),
but excluding West Coast cities, furthest from Atlanta are
Bos LEM (1074 miles) and :t..hmcae lNt (1091 miles).
V. Special material on stadium itself a. Color photograph of stadium with city skyline in
background (Mr. Shelton has it; it needs mounting).
b. B/W artist rendering to show stadium's relative location
as to city, freeways, etc.
c. Facts and figures on the stadium itself (seating, etc.)
and perhaps a few odds and ends on Atlanta (hotels, etc.)

In the past five years , commercial Cold Storage has
invested 5½ million dollars , confident of the potential
growth of Atlanta and the South.
We strongly feel Atlant
and the south deserves a ball club with the statue of th
Braves.
