Summer Diamond Meetings Continue No Baseball For D.C. Until 76 NEW YORK. (AP) -- Washington, D.C., apparently seek- ng to be the site of major eague baseball next year, like- y will have to wait until 1976. Washington has expressed teen interest in having baseball next season, one year before an expected wholesale expansion by the majors. That became evident Wednesday at the major league summer meetings.- A key proposal under consideration was to play as many as .20 games in Washington in 1975. No announced action was taken on the matter, and an offi- cial decision was expected today following completion of separate discussions by the A m e r i c a n a n d National Leagues, and then a joint meeting of the leagues. But the Associated Press learned that Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn and Ameri- can League President Lee MacPhail have rejected the proposal. The Baltimore Orioles helped trigger the proposal by arranging for a special contract that permits them to play 11 oE their 81 home games elsewhere in 1975.

Then he continued to stuff gear into a battered equipment bag and reflected upon the end of his career as a Detroit Tiger. His departure, announced Wednesday in the form of a trade with Montreal, coincides with that of fellow veteran Norm Cash. "I Eigured it h a d to happen sooner or later. I've been expecting it for five years," said Northrup, who was told shortly before Detroit's 3-2 victory over Cleveland that he had been traded to the Montreal Expos for a player to be named after the ; end of the baseball season. Earlier, the Tigers announced Eirst baseman Cash had been put on waivers in order to give him his unconditional release. The day marked the end of 15 years as a Tiger for Cash. Northrup, a 34year-old outfielder, had spent almost a decade with the Bengals. Their parting marks the beginning of the end .of an era for the Tigers, who are stilling criticism by grooming o 1 d timers and grooming youngsters. Detroit entered the season with one of the oldest teams in the baseball but is quickly get- :ing rid of the image. don't anticipate any sbake-up. Where are you going to shake up?" The departure of Cash and Northrup -doesn't think who he'l said he report to Montreal -- leaves only seven players left from the 1968 World Series championship team: pitchers Mickey Lolich and John Hiller, center fielder Mickey Stanley, left fielder Willie Horton, first baseman Bill Freehan, plus designated hitters Gates Brown and Al Kaline. Right-handed pitcher Fred Holdsworth, 22, and shortstop Tom Veryzer, 21, have been called up from the Tigers Evansville farm club to fill the open spots on the roster. Both were members of the Triple-A squad's Ail-Star team. Both Cash and Northrnp saic they weren't bitter over their fate, but neither seemed par ticularly pleased. "I'm not bitter, but I think they could have handled it a little differently," said Cash who will be paid the rest of hi reported $75,000 salary. North rup earns an estimated $50,00f a year.
