Hank Greenberg Sitting and Talking with George M. Weiss

(Original Caption) Hank Greenberg, (L), General Manager of the Cleveland Indians, discusses his plan for inter league games during the regular Major League season with George M. Weiss, Vice President and General Manager of the New York Yankees at the Joint Meeting of the Majors in New York's Commodore Hotel. Greenberg had suggested that each major league team play 32 games with clubs in the other league, saying it would increase attendance. American League officials were against the proposal on grounds that it would lessen interest in inter League All Star and World Series games.
