Baltimore Orioles - 1933-1954

Walter MacEachern, GM

Franchise #9

 

History Brief: A Baltimore investment group led by GM Walter MacEachern purchased the Franchise #9 team from Cleveland's Craig Shifflett in the middle of the 1933 season. It was the second time MacEachern had invested in a Baltimore team; his Franchise #12 BaySox played in Baltimore from 1921 to 1924 before they were sold to Sacramento's Gerry Hobbs. In 1999, MacEachern would also purchase Expansion Franchise #25, establishing the Gunpowder Ironmen.

Following the 1954 season, the Baltimore Franchise #9 was sold back to the original owner, Craig Shifflett, who returned the team to Cleveland. The franchise remained there until 1972, after which it disbanded. In 1976, John Flood bought the franchise at a foreclosure sale and established a team in Connecticut. Today, Franchise #9 is owned and operated by Scott Brown in Horseshoe Bay.
