Members of the Milwaukee
board of vocational and adult
education will vote on the
recommendation Apr. 22.
Parkinson said the school
would be exclusively for those
students whose home environ-
ment is not conducive to
study. He said that students
would probably have to be
recommended for admission
by the welfare department of
their county.
Parkinson stressed that the
students would not necessarily be "problem" children, but
persons from homes where
the parents were the problem
or other distractions are present.
The school would be seL up
on a regional basis with students from several states coming to Milwaukee for training.

ROLLER: EXPAND IN '67
OR BRAVES HERE IN '66
By WlLIJAM JANZ
Circuit Judge Elmer W. Roll·
er Wednesday night ordered the
Braves back from Atlanta this
season unless the National
league expands and grants this
city a franchise for 1967.
He gave the league until
May 16 to sub m It a written
plan for expansion. He said ex·
pansion was feasible in the National league and that Milwau-
kee can support major league
ba1>ebaU.
The stay will expire on May
18 if no expansion plan is sul).
mitted. the court said. If the
plan is unsatisfactory, the stay
wi11 be lifted, the judge said,
and the court will take-- over
supervision of Braves games
here or appoint a board or commission to do so.
He also fined each of the defendants, the Braves, the league
and its other clubs, SS,000 for
violation of state antitrust laws.
The historic decision was announced after the judge and his
staff had worked 36 straight
hour~ to complete the 175 page
document.
At the decision, near pandemonium broke out in the courtroom, filled with 150 persons,
including many newsmen who
raced through the courtroom to
telephones.

I want you to go out to D. C. stadium and throw out the first ball of the baseball season. An
you up to it?"
Yes, sir, Mr. President. Does that mean you' re not going?"
That's right. If I go out there and throw out the first ball,
that means I'll commit myself to the Washington Senators
team, and after Hawaii I'm not about to commit myself to
anybody."
" I think you're wise, sir. If Washington loses, you can
always blame it on me."
"There are a couple of things, Hubert. Where were you
going to throw the ball?"

"You can say we support them, that we, of course, would

�CONCLUSIONS OF LAW
What Judge Roller Said
The conclLtSions drawn by Circuit Judge Elmer W. Roller in
his decision in the Braves case:
SOME SNOOZED, OTHERS WAITED IN JUDGE ROLLER'S COURTROOM FOR THE VER~Y.,_.iP1>oto
.,
Excerpts From Decision
Excerpts from the decision
ha n de d down by Circuit
Judge Elmer w. Roller:
. . . Concededly the case
is novel, but that does no t
mean that it can possess no
legal merit. I presents unusual and perplexing questions which arise from a
business which in modus
operandi occupies an unusual
pos.itlon in the economy of
the nation. The question is
hardly whether an identical
factual situation has b e e n
adjudicated but ratt.er
whether the facts presented
here constitute a violation of
the S~te·s Antitrust I aw s
within applicable principles
of law.
The tenn, organized baseball refers to "the many professional clubs a n d leagues
which have subjected themselves to the jurisdiction of
the Commissioner c:,f Baseball
and have contracted with one
another to abide by certain
rules and regulations."
•.. The claim that organized baseball is a monopoly
is fully supported in the
record.
Its economic control is
achieved principally by
agreements, viz., (a) the Constitution and Rules of t h e
National League of Professional Baseball Clubs .
(b) the National Le a g u e
Agreement to which ea c h
Major League and all member clubs are parties, and
(c) the Major League Rules,
promulgated pursuant to the
agreement and binding upon
both Leagues, their member
clubs and players.
... The reserve clause Is
good for the whole life of the
ballplayer.
The effect of the Uniform
Player's Contract and the
Major League Rules by
which the player agrees in
his contract to be bound are:
(I) A player wishing to
p 1a y professional baseball
must sign a contract with a
professional baseball club:
(2) The terms of that contract commit the player to
being reserved for a period
during a term for which he
is not under contract and to
an indefinite number of renewals of his contract;
(3) A player who fails to
contract, who violates his
contract or reservation may
be placed on the restricted
or disqualified list and be ine 11 g i bl e to play for any
league in organized baseball.
. . . The interrelated
rules and agreements created a monopoly of the market (territorial franchises)
and over the raw material
of the business (the right to
the services of baseball players).
From the very outset of
the case the court has been
met with a continuing challenge to its jurisdiction. Defendants assert that because
of the unique nature of the

baseball business, because of
its national scope and character, it requires a uniform,
national system of regulation. . . . Their jurisdictional
objections rest on the fed·
era! decisions holding that
organized professional baseball is not within the scope of
the Sherman Antitrust Act,
and in progression t he y
maintain that the business
is not amenable to state
law.
. . For reasons previously considered. the court
was and is of the opinion
that the f e de r a 1 decisions
are not conclusive of this
In seeking to recover a forfeiture the State has a pecuniary interest in the lawsuit
and is the real party in interest and, in the court's
o p i n i o n, If the injunctive
remedy was the sole relief
sought the State would be the
real party in interest in
bringing the action to en·
force the antitrust laws in
its sovereign and governmental capacity as the statute directs. The possibility
that the County of Milwaukee or private citizens may
incidentally be benefited by
this action does not nullify
the State's real party in interest status or convert the
action to a private lawsuit
between individuals.
From a review of the record
the court concludes that the
financial success of a Major
League baseball operation in
a community and the determination of whether the economic situation in such com•
munity is such that It can and
will support the continued
operation of baseball can be
made only on the basis of and
in terms of a reasonable period of time.
Mr. Lou Perini moved the
Braves to Milwaukee in 1953.
He continued to own the
Braves until November 26,
1962, when the club was sold
to its present ownership.
Mr. Perini had acquired the
club in 1945. It was in very
bad financial straits. He paid
very little for it other than to
assume certain liabilities in
the amount of $305,000 and to
pay for the organizational
costs in the amount of $6,508.
Consequently the total purchase price was $311,508.
. . . Although the record
does not reveal the exact
measure of the financial success of the Perini operation
in Milwaukee, there is sufficient evidence to conclude that
it was exceedingly lucrative.
...
The court is satisfied that
the effect upon Braves' attendance by the introduction
of Major League baseball in
the Minneapolis-St. Paul area
was infinitesimal. Likewise
the contrast presented by the
argument that Milwaukee's
contribution to the League's
tow attendance d r opp e d
from 20 per cent for the
period of 1953 to 1960 to 8 per
cent in 1961 to 1964 is misleading. It Ignores the fact
that the team's standing had
never been below s e c o n d
place during the first period
and it was in fourth and fifth
and sixth place in the second
period. It ignores the fact
that the league was expanded
to ten teams and that two
competitive t e a m s were
transferTed to the populous
areas of Los Angeles and San
Francisco.
The Court has already
noted the reasonable explanation for the failure of local
residents to invest substantially in the Braves stock.
There is also some evidence
that stock offered by Perini
at $12.25 a share in 1961 had
dropped to $3.375 in 1962
which fact may well have
been reflected in the attitude
of local investors in 1963.
There is no doubt that
there were some differences
and problems concerning both
the lease and sale of television rights.
However, there is evidence
that in July of 1964, County
Executive John Doyne inquired of Mr. {William C.)
Bartholomay whether the r e
was anything that the Braves
wanted changed in the lease.
At that time the lease had one
year to run. Doyne testified
that Bartholomay stated that
the contract was satisfactory.
This is confirmed by Mr. McHale's testimony to the extent
that he stated that they were
satisfied with the percentage
rentals, but for them to at·
tempt to change several annoying problems would create
bad public relations.
... The record does not
justify giving serious consideration to the claim of problems with reference to the
lease.
Some concern was expressed relative to an un·
favorable political climate in
Milwaukee by several of the
members of the National
League. . . . All was directed towards Mr. (Eugene
H.) Grobschmidt except for
one other instance.
Some of the statements of
the Chairman of the County
Board were brash and offend·
ing and in one instance constituted a "low blow," as the
p r e s s aptly described it.
There is no proof in the record that the statements of
Mr. Grobschmldt evinced or
created a political situation...
Now In regard to an unfriendly press.
P e o p I e in baseball, like
people in any other public
business, cannot (and indeed
the record herein indicates
that they do not) expect to
be without the critical com·
m e n t of an independent
press.
There are two daily newspapers in Milwaukee, one is
a morning paper, the other
an evening paper.
The record in this case
demonstrates that Major
League baseball was covered favorably by the newspapers in Milwaukee.
. . . Neither can it be
said in the face of these circumstances that the c iv i c
leaders of Milwaukee and
Wisconsin did not lend their
full measure of support to
the team. The record will not
support a conclusion that the
public officials were unfriendly to the Braves.
During the decade between
1950 and 1960, Milwaukee has
grown faster than any of the
older, well-established Major
League areas of the northwest and midwest; only the
western cities and Washington, D. C. have exceeded its
rate ot growth. Projections
for the 1960-1980 period for
Milwaukee range from 0.8 to
2.1%.
. . . Wisconsin's growth
rate during 1960-1980 is ex-
pected to grow faster than
most states in which there
are Major League teams.
The several owners whose
depositions were read upon
this trial are substantially in
agreement that the Major
Leagues will expand. They
assert, however, that expansion is not feasible at the
present time. They say there
is a shortage of players. 1lle
Court is satisfied, however,
from the testimony of former
Commissioner Ford C. Frick,
Mr. William L. (Bill) Veeck,
Mr. (Bobby) Bragan, field
manager of the Braves, and
also from the testimony of
Mr. (Warren) Giles and Mr.
(Walter) O'Malley, that there
are sufficient baseball players to stock a team in Milwaukee.
I. The defendant corporations have violated Section 133.01
of the Wisconsin Statutes (1963) in the following respects:
a. Having agreed among themselves to control and allocate professional baseball players, to assign to the respective
corporate defendants exclusive territorial rights and privileges respecting the exhibition of professional Major League
baseball games, and to limit the number of members in the
National League of Professional Baseball Clubs of which
the defendants are all the constituent members, they have
now agreed to transfer the site of Major League baseball
exhibitions from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Atlanta, Georgia,
with the result that trade and commerce within the State
of Wisconsin have been substantially restrained.
b. They have combined and conspired among themselves
to monopolize the business of Major League professional
baseball within the State of Wisconsin.
2. The National League of Professional Baseball Clubs Is
and has been the means and instrumentality by which the
corporate defendants have engaged in the practices referred
to in Paragraph 1 hereof.
3. By means of the practices outlined In Paragraph l hereof the corporate defendants and their counterpart members
of the American League of Professional Baseball Clubs have
acquired monopolistic control of all available ball players of
Major League caliber with the result that the granting of per·
mission from one of the said leagues in the form of a franchise to operate a Major League baseball team is necessary
for any person to engage in the business of professional Major
League baseball.
4. The corporate defendants' monopolistic control of Major
League professional baseball requires the defendants to exercise reasonable control and to follow reasonable procedures
In the issuance ot memberships in the National League of
Professional Baseball Clubs and in the definition of sites for
baseball exhibitions and as respects the transfer of memberships.
5. The transfer by the corporate defendants of the franchise in the National League of Professional Baseball Clubs
from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and the refusal to issue a replacement franchise allowing the exhibition of Major League
baseball in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was an unreasonable exercise of the monopolistic control of the business of Major
League professional baseball and was in violation of Section
133.0J, Wisconsin Statutes.
6. The refusal of the National League and the failure of
the American League to issue a franchise to Milwaukee
county or the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club, Inc., was
a concerted refusal to deal in restraint of trade and commerce within the State ot Wisconsin in violation of Section
133.01, Wisconsin Statutes (1963).
7. This court hu jurisdiction over all of the parties and
of the subject matter hereof.
8. The State of Wisconsin is the real party in interest in
this action. The Attorney General and the Corporation Counsel
of Milwaukee County were authorized to bring this action
under the statutes of the State of Wisconsin, Teams, Inc., the
Greater Milwaukee Committee and other private citizens in
Wisconsin were entltled to inform the Attorney General
of alleged violations of Section 133.01, Wisconsin Statutes
(1963).
9. That by reason of said violation of Section 133.01 aald
defendants and each of them has incurred a forfeiture provided by Statute.
10. That the plaintiff is entitled to judgment against said
defendants and each of them in the sum of SS,000 with costs
and disbursements.
11. That the plaintiff Is entitled to the JnjuncUve relief
prayed for in its complaint.
12. That the defendant Milwaukee Braves, Inc., now known
as Atlanta Braves, Inc., and all other defendants herein,
shall be and they are hereby restrained and enjoined from
playing the home championship schedule of the defendant
Milwaukee Braves, Inc., now known as Atlanta Braves, Inc.,
in any city or place other than in the County of Milwaukee,
State of Wisconsin, at County Stadium; provided that:
I.) This order shall be stayed, under the continuing jurisdiction of the Court to the 18th day of May, 1966, and may
thereafter be extended in the event that the defendants
shall, prior to 12:00 o'clock noon, C.S.T., on the 16th day of
May, 1966, submit to this Court a written plan or plans for
expansion of the defendant National League of Professional
Baseball Clubs so as to permit Major League baseball to be
played at County Stadium with the City of Milwaukee a1 its
"home," effective with the playing season for the year 1967:
2.) Such expansion shall contemplate the granting of a
National League fra~1.hise to the County of Milwaukee or to
such qualified third parties as shall be interested In acquiring a National League franchise, and will advise the Court
of such fact.
3. ) The Court reserves jurisdiction in connection with any
such plan or plans untH the same may be consummated between the ultimate parties.
4.) So that there will be no misunderstanding, the stay
herein granted will expire at 12:00 o'clock noon, C.S.T., on
May 16th, 1966, if no such plan is submitted within said
time. Likewise, the stay, or any extension thereof granted on
the strength of any plan submitted, will be terminated by
the Court in the event the Court concludes that the plan is
unsatisfactory.
5.) The defendant. Milwaukee Braves, Inc., now known as
Atlanta Braves, Inc., will perform its home games In the
County of Milwaukee under the supervision ot the court and
such board or commission hereinafter appointed by the
court.
LET JUDGMENT BE ENTERED ACCORDINGLY.
BY THE COURT:
(Signed Elmer W. Roller)
Circuit Judge
Dated; April 13th, 1966.
No formal agrttment is
necessary to constitute the
unlawful conspiracy, nor is it
material to prove that the ultimate object of the combination Is to restrain trade, if it
in fact does unreasonably do
,~
. . . Even if the shutdown
of baseball in Milwaukee was
not intended to restrain trade,
the decisions to transfer, not
to expand, and to refuse to
deal with the Milwaukee market would nevertheless be illegal efforts to protect and
extend the power of an existing monopoly.
Even if Organized Baseball
is a self-regulating monopoly
enjoying some kind of privileged position under the antitrust laws, actions charged
are nevertheless actionable
restraints of trade and abuse
cl monopoly power. The violation here concerns the
abuse by the monopoly of its
power in a manner which
will have the effect to re-strain trade and commerce
within this State. The assumption of the reasonableness of the agreements by
w h I c h ocganlzed baseball
maintains its internal control,
as those agreements affect
people within the structure of
Organized Badeball, do not
sanction the monopoly to restrain trade and commerce
outside of baseball.
. . . The Sherman Act provides that the several district
courts of the United States
are invested with jurisdiction
to prevent and restrain violations of the Sherman Act.
. .• A recurring defense argument and, in fact. an affirmative jurisdictional defense is that the action by
the State of Wisconsin attempts to compel the defendant to continue to do business
in the State in violation of
the Federal Constitution. Defendants ask in what posi•
tion does the state find itself
in attacking the monopoly
and then asking for it to
come back to the state?
In the court's opinion the
plaintiff presents a legally
adequate answer to that defense. Plaintiff states that
there are two solutions to
the question. One is to dissolve the monopoly, void the
uniform player contract and
re-establish competition. The
other is to let baseball continue to enjoy the internal monopolistic prerogatives
which it deems necessary for
the continuance of top level
competition in Major League
baseball but to require them
by court decree to respond
in a responsible and reason-

able manner in matters pertaining to the transfer and
allocation of franchises. The
state asserts that it has elected the latter course which
presents two primary factua l
issues: (a) whether the decision of the owners, the National League, made in October and November of 1964,
was a responsible and reasonable decision or was arbitrary or even capricious
and whether the refusal of
the league to deal, to grant
an expansion franchise was
arbitrary, (b) whether or not
the self-regulated monopoly
has accorded all interested
parties due process.
Findings of Foci
Milwaukee County is unable to secure as a tenant for
Milwaukee County Stadium a
Major Le a g u e professional
baseball team playing its
home games on the championship schedule in Milwaukee
County Stadium.
The termination of the exhibition of Major League
baseball games in Milwaukee
County Stadium prevents the
sale at Major League professional games in Milwaukee
County Stadium of substantial amounts of food, beverages and merchandise.
The termination or the exhibition of Major League
baseball games in the Milwaukee County Stadium restrains and prevents the sales
of commodities and services
by restaurants, hotels, motels,
taxis and other transportation facilities to spectators
who would attend Major
League professional games at
Milwaukee County Stadium.
The termination of t.he exhibition of Major League professional baseball games at
Milwaukee County Stadium
prevents the Milwaukee newspapers, radio stations and
television stations from print·
ing, broadcasting and telecasting Major League professional baseball games at
Milwaukee County Stadium.
The termination of the exhibition of Major League
baseball games at Milwaukee
County Stadium eliminates
the competition for spectators which heretofore existed
between the Milwaukee County Stadium and Wrigley Field
and Comiskey Park in Chicago, Illinois.
The termination of the exhibition of Major L e a g u e
baseball games at Milwaukee
County Stadium eliminates
the competition which heretofore existed between television and radio stations located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin,
and Chicago, Illinois, for the
Major League audience in
Southern Wisconsin and
Northern Illinois.
In the absence of a Majo r
League baseball club playing its home championship
schedule of games in Milwaukee County Stadium, the
State of Wisconsin, County of
Milwaukee, and City of Mllwaukee will be deprived or
substantial tax revenues previously levied upon the sales
of food. beverages and souvenirs at the exhibition of
Major League baseball
games at Milwaukee County
Stadium.

br Ra.Loh
Sehauer
County Stadium will deprive
the public, within commuting
range of said Stadium, of the
economic and recreational
benefits of the exhibition or
Major League professional
championship baseball games
at Milwaukee County Stadium.
The defendants and the
American League and its
member clubs, the National
Association of Professional
Baseball Leagues, the member leagues and member
clubs of the aforementioned
National Association, have an
economic monopoly over the
exh i bi tio n of professiona l baseball. The Constitution
of the National League
grants unlimited power and
discretion to determine the
location of a franchise; provides it no objective standards for determining whether
or not to grant a request for
a transfer of a franchise,
and contains no rules of procedure which would accord
the city, county or state
from which any such proposed transfer would be
made, an opportunity to be
heard.
During the period 1953-1962
the National League Baseball
Club of Milwaukee, Inc., the
corporate predecessor of d~
fendant Milwaukee Braves,
Inc., eamed more than $7,500,000 before taxes fro m
baseball operations. In 1962
the Braves' franchises, player
contracts and other assets
carried on the books at approximately $322,000 were
transferred from Nation a I
League Baseball Club of Mil·
waukee, Inc., ultimately to defendant Milwaukee Br aves,
Inc., for $6,218,480. As a result of said transfer, National
League Baseball Club of Milwaukee, Inc., realized gain of
approximately $5,583,000 give
or take $1,000,000. During
the above period salaries of
$-445,000 were paid to the
Perini family and dividends ot
$300,000 were paid to the Perini Corporation.
Over the five year period
1960-1964 on a cash basis the
Braves and their corporate
predecessors realized total
income of $836,900. The
Braves reported to their share-holders net losses of $43,378
in 1963 and $45,270 in 1964.
Net income from operations
was reported as $82,393 in
1953 and $104,730 in 1964 .
These net Income figures were
reduced by interest expense
on funds borrowed t.o purchase the Braves of $125,771
and $150,000 respectively tn
arriving at the net loss figures. In 1964 $48,800 of expense in connection with relocation of the franchise were
charged against income.
Had scouting expenses been
capitalized as were player acquisition a n d development
costs as sound accounting
methods would require, the
Braves would have shown a
net income of approximately
$170,000 in 1963 and $151,000
in 1964.
The Braves net receipts
from the sale of radio and
television broadcasting rights
compare favorably with the
net receipts of the defendant
clubs that submitted figures
to this court.
During the period from
1953 through 1965, the Mil·
waukee Braves, Inc. and its
corporate predecessors had
a total home paid attendance
of 19,551.163. This was greater than any club in either
Major League with the exception of the defendant, Los
Angeles (Brooklyn) Dodgers.
The average annual attend·
ance for this period in Mil·
