Three-division format discussed American League

August 27, 1993|By New York Times News Service

NEW YORK -- Representatives of the owners and the players yesterday discussed the feasibility of adapting the 1994 baseball schedule to a three-division alignment in each league.

The two-hour meeting was the first in an effort to reach agreement on an additional playoff round and a change from two divisions to three divisions. The next meeting was tentatively scheduled for Tuesday.

"We've narrowed the issues somewhat," said Eugene Orza, associate general counsel of the Players Association. "There are still some scheduling questions we have to look into."

The 1994 schedule has been drawn up based on the existing two divisions in each league.
