Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - Numbers Game -

HART­FORD, Conn. — Ma­jor League Base­ball said Satur­day it is com­mit­ted to pro­tect­ing mi­nor league teams, a day after U.S. Sen. Richard Blu­men­thal warned of pos­si­ble con­gres­sional ac­tion if the or­ga­ni­za­tion fol­lowed through on mi­nor league con­trac­tion plans.

“It is not Ma­jor League Base­ball’s goal to elim­i­nate any club in these ne­go­ti­a­tions, and MLB cur­rently has a plan for ev­ery club to con­tinue oper­a­tions with some level of sup­port,” Ma­jor League Base­ball said in a writ­ten state­ment.
