    The 1941 St. Louis Browns season was a season in American baseball. It involved the Browns finishing 6th in the American League with a record of 70 wins and 84 losses.

    Offseason

    Regular season

    The 1941 season marked a change in management, as Luke Sewell was appointed the Browns new manager on June 5, 1941.[2] While the St. Louis Cardinals drew over 600,000 fans, the Browns barely drew 175,000.[3] The consensus was that St. Louis could not support two teams.

    Potential move to Los Angeles

    The Browns ownership had reached an agreement to move the franchise to Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce had guaranteed attendance of 500,000, a figure that the Browns had not seen since their 1924 season.[3] The Browns would play in the stadium that was used by the Pacific Coast League’s Los Angeles Angels. As part of the agreement to move to Los Angeles, the Browns would buy the stadium.[3] It was expected that all Major League Baseball owners would approve of the move at the upcoming Winter Meetings.[3] Before the scheduled meetings, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, and California would stay closed to Major League Baseball for another decade.
