President George Trautman, in his annual report to his National Association of Minor Leagues, warned that "both the majors and the minors are at the crossroads." "Unrestrained broadcast and telecast of major league games from stations located in minor league territory has contributed much more to (he decline of attendance than all other factors combined." Trautman said. "More than 2,000 stations located from coast to coast engaged in 1950 in broadcasting major league games." Trautman cited other factors that contributed to the 19 percent attendance drop in his speech to the delegates from 57 leagues at lhe opening business session of the convention. He acknowledged that some decrease in the turstile count could be blamed on poor weather conditions, fewer recreational dollars and the unsettled International condition. WanU Modification 'The question is slmoly this," Trautman said. "Can minor league baseball survive In daily competition with.the top per/ormers of the profession? The answer, In my opinion, is 'no.' "I feel there must be some modification of the present radio and television regulations if minor league baseball U" The Jersey City-Ottawa switch, in the making for several weeks was announced today by Charles Stoneham. president of the Little Giants.
