COURIER NEWS Miami Wants In Southern league Chattanooga Pilot Might Figure In Possible Transfer By BRUCB THORNTON Vnlled Tress Sports Wrilcr Miami wants to field ft baseball team In (lie Southern Association, but residents of the Florida city 'don't know exactly how to go about it, ' Tliere have: been some rumors that a fellow by the name of Joe Eii'gcl, who- happens to know his way around the Dixie loop, may bo able to do .them some good. As ft matter of /net, there has been some talk of establishing En gel, now president of "the Chattanooga Lookouts, in the driver's seat of Uie Miami-sponsored club when and If the event comes about. And if looks like the string pulls both ways. For Choo Choo big shot recently told Guy Butler, sports editor of the Miami Dally News, that he has slated a meeting shortly in Atlanta with Joe Adims. well-known Miami sportsman nn<! manager of (he El Commodore Hotel and the Blscayne Kennel Club. The purpose of the confab, according to Butler, will be the proposed transfer of the club to Miami. Engcl points out that Miami's principal need right now is a ball park. He says the park should have stands to seat 7500 customers, and a few bleacher scats thrown in on the deal. " Adams, who recently left Miami for his lodge in north Georgia, plans to'contact Engel before he returns, and arrange a meeting with him to go over the details. .:The word has got around Ihtit Southern League directors arc ft little disturbed by too-frequent shifts of scenery among clubs dur- . ing Ihe last couple of seasons. According to the rumors, when the Lookout proper!)' is established In some new city by Eiigcl, officials want it to lie on n permanent basis. .. Butler says Adams' original idea was to coax Engcl Into transferring to the Florida city after the war Butler says, however, that. Engcl expressed to him a desire to locale •in some city other than Chattanooga lor Ihe 1045 season. ;' Says Engel: :."! •- mn definitely Interested in Miami. It's my. first Choice If satisfactory arrangements can be made. Of course, they also want us in Knoxville,' where they ahendj hnve a park anj stands bit enough." i . Engel .was informer] thai Miam Field, formerly used by the Florida East Coast League, would seal something less thnn 2000 in the grandstand,.but that it was In gooc shape, having been remodeled abon . three years ago to accommodate the New York Giants ns n training site; • • ' . He: said this would be too smal' -declaring: " "I must have a stand scaling n •least 1500. We wouldn't have I filled every day, to be sure, but it' the big days and nights that kcc a club going. . . . ; After all, if Miami goes into thl tiling, it wants to do so with n doubt. of Its success. Therefore, . park seating only two or thrc thousand would be far too small. .Since Miami Field Is the onl park in the city set up with grand stands and lights, it has been sug gcsted that additions be built t the present stands down the firs and third base lines. Sportsman Adams, however, fnv ors a new park with adequate ac commodatlnns for Maimi's entry ii to such competition. Engel says Miami's distance fro: DOPE BUCKET i. e.
