Thankfully JR was buddy buddy with Gov and a few Senators downstate who pushed thru the bill to build stadium

Before that Selig tried to buy team to move to Milwaukee back in day ,, Eddie Debartillo (Spelling?) wanted to move team to New Orleans before MLB blocked his purchace of White Sox

Also had the near swap in 70's with A's

A's would have moved to Chicago , White Sox move to Seattle
