Conditions to Relocate to Another Club’s Territory
In order to relocate to another club’s home territory, a major league club must comply with four conditions:
It must notify the club whose territory it wishes to move to prior to October 31 of the preceeding year.
It shall satisfy the Commissioner of the long-term viability of the club in its new territory.
The stadiums of the two clubs may not be located within five miles of one another unless both clubs agree otherwise.
The moving club shall pay the first club a sum of money deemed appropriate by the Commissioner.
In no event shall any home territory house more than two MLB clubs.
Home territories are defined in Article VIII, Section 8 of the Major League Constitution
