No one from West Palm Beach nor the Expos attended the meeting, but MacDonald said he held a proxy from Jim Fanning, Montreal general manager, who is attending a meeting In Colorado Springs. Other changes approved by ,the league included the transfer of the Leesburg club to Key West, under San Diego sponsorship; and new franchises at Miami Beach (New York Mets) and Winter Haven (Boston Red Sox). "The only thing we need now is approval by the national association," said MacDonald. "What's involved is that if an organization like the Mets or Red Sox were to drop a team from a league somewhere else in the nation to join our league, there could be a problem in the other league. "But we expect to go with 12 teams, divided In sections like this: Eastern Cocoa, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Miami Beach and Key West; Central Tampa, St. Petersburg, Lakeland, Winter Haven, Orlando, Daytona Beach. "The teams will play mostly within their own divisions, with one full swing around the circuit. In other words West Palm Beach will play In St. Petersburg one trip, and St. Petersburg there one trip, but West Palm Beach and other teams in the Eastern Division will play three or four series home and home. Each section will have a champion and they'll playoff for the title. "It's not up to me to announce that Montreal will operate the West Palm Beach franchise, but they asked me two days ago to vote their proxy and the league approved it." MacDonald said he does not expect any further problems leeding a full league meeting intll after the national minor league convention In San Francisco in another month. The Montreal club Is also expected to announce soon final plans for the spring camp site. No action has been taken in Lake Worth to provide necessary facilities, and reports from Daytona Beach Indicate strong pressure is being exerted there to get the Expos and their farm teams to train there.
