Traverse City changes hands
From Mike Cha:
In 2+ years, the Traverse City Cherry Bombers have come a long
way, from expansion to an established team. It won 70 games in its
inaugural season; it went 85-77 in just its second season; and it has
played .500+ ball this year. Unfortunately, recent circumstances have not
abled me to continue on as NASA owner. So effective immediately, I have
stepped down as NASA owner. This is not a pleasant decision for me to
make, especially at midseason. And I am aware that it is not necessarily
fair to the other owners, so in that respect, I am sorry. But I think it
is in my (and NASA's) best interests for me to discontinue being in NASA.
I wish all of you well in your future endeavors.
To David O'Keefe:
I'm happy to announce that a new owner has been found for the Traverse
City Cherry Bombers. Assuming the reigns will be David O'Keefe, whom I
selected both because he noted had been playing since 1980, and because he
seemed quite enthusiastic about joining the league. David's email address is:
firstname.lastname@example.org. Please add him to your mailing lists immediately. David
will be assuming control of the franchise, effective July 1. He is free to
begin trading then (you guys all know the rules about trading with new
owners). As for June, all Cherry Bomber games will be played via
instructions, and I'll make out rotations today or tomorrow.
