May 26, 2000|By NEW YORK TIMES NEWS SERVICE

Yes, he does have the votes for his realignment plan, commissioner Bud Selig said Wednesday.

After Selig postponed an owners meeting scheduled for June, a baseball lawyer said the he did not have enough votes to adopt the plan that would move Arizona to the American League and Tampa Bay to the National League, among other elements.

"I do have the votes," Selig said by telephone from his Milwaukee office. He postponed the meeting to early July, he said, to explore other possible alignments and schedules before making a final decision.
