Milwaukee County filed the suit Tuesday in U.S. District Court. It demanded the National League either block the Braves' migration to Georgia or grant Milwaukee a new franchise. Frick said icily if the city wanted to keep baseball, "It's the world's worst way of going about it." Baseball, a 19th century child of the cow pastures who grew up to become a millionaire many times over, has long anchored Its claim that it is a sport, not a business, on a 1922 U.S. Supreme Court decision. Wendell Holmes Jr., in a case involving the old Federal League, held at that time baseball was neither an interstate operation nor engaged in commerce. In 1953, the Court refused to rule on another case, letting Holmes' decree stand. Four Named to Davis Team lions was made Tuesday night by non-ploying Capt. Oeorg R.

For Hli but about a dozen days of the baseball season, now nearly two-thirds over, the Dodgers have held first place in the National League with a pitch-and-putt style of play involving around the pitching of Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale and the.putt- putt-putting of the mercury-footed Wills: The 5-foot-10, 170-pound Wills probably has contributed more than anyone else to the team's cause.
