    Oh yeah that's right. Kind of a shame Moog isn't in the HOF.

    Yes, I'd love for Wichita to stay too. Plus, I would love to see my Gulls in this series at some point.

    Driveball Redux (San Diego name+logo unveiled)

    1957 Driveball preview For the 1957 season, the New Jersey Rogues of the CDA will play their home games at Palmer Stadium, normally the home of Princeton University's football program. In downtown Seattle, a parade welcoming the Emeralds was the biggest in town since the Rainiers clinched the PCL pennant two years earlier. For the NDA expansion draft, which will fill the rosters of the Miami Flamingos and San Diego Admirals, the existing teams will be required to place one goalie, two defenders, two midfielders and two attackers on their unprotected lists. From those 56 players, the Flamingos and Admirals can take between twenty to twenty-five players. Rumor mill: Buffalo Lakers up for sale; Anheuser-Busch atop the list of potential buyers. In other sports: The National Basketball Association approves two moves for the 1957-58 campaign: The Rochester Royals to Cincinnati and the Fort Wayne Pistons to Detroit. The fate of the Brooklyn Dodgers could fall into the hands of NY parks commissioner Robert Moses, who has been feuding with team owner Walter O'Malley over where to build a new stadium to keep the Dodgers from leaving the Big Apple. Also in baseball, rumors point to Horace Stoneham wanting to move the NY Giants to Minnesota for next season.

    New Jersey over in the CDA has been a troubled franchise from the start. The Heroes' Frosty Mug win in 1955 has made it pretty tough for the Rogues to gain any traction within the tri-state area. After the Rogues move, and the Flamingos and Admirals enter the NDA, there should be some stability in both leagues till at least 1966. With 1958 on the horizon, the tables could be turned on some of the current Driveball markets depending on what happens in other sports. I will open a committee to determine whether to send two MLB teams to California or merge MLB with the PCL. Also, I do plan on having the AFL, ABA and WHA exist in this universe too. Another committee will open for relocating the Chicago Cardinals of the NFL after the 1959 football season.

    That may be true, but I was trying to keep in mind that the Space Needle wouldn't be built for another few years. With that in mind, I wasn't too sure what the city's main icon was before the Century 21 expo.

    FAST-GROWING SPORT ARRIVES IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST On Tuesday, the owners of the National Driveball Alliance voted unanimously to approve the relocation of the financially troubled Toronto Titans to Seattle for the 1957 season. The Titans owners, buried in debt, placed the team for sale hoping to find a Canadian buyer. When none such suitors arose, in stepped our very own Mortimer Todd, 38, heir to the fortune of Cascade Airlines. "It took me a bit to understand the game, mostly because it is still relatively brand new compared to baseball or football," said Todd. "But I have great confidence that the people of Seattle will come out and buy tickets by the bucket load," he added. The new Seattle club will have a new name, new logo and new colors in time for their '57 debut. Home games will be played at Husky Stadium, normally the home of the University of Washington football program since 1920. The Seattle Times. September 19, 1956
