To explain: Bill Veeck held a number of jobs in baseball and was owner of the White Sox on two occasions, 1959-1961 and 1976-1981. When the American League was going to expand into the Los Angeles area in the early Sixties, Veeck and his business partner, Hank Greenberg, had wanted to own the franchise. The owner of the Los Angeles (formerly Brooklyn) Dodgers, Walter O’Malley, not wanting to have to compete against Veeck and his shenanigans, invoked his exclusive franchise rights for Southern California, meaning Veeck would have to seek O’Malley’s blessing to put another baseball team in Los Angeles. It was clear O’Malley had no intention of giving it (he later agreed to Gene Autry owning the new Los Angeles franchise). Dale Carnegie, was of course the author of the book How To Win Friends And Influence People.
