Brooklyn Legends - 2007-2014

Brian Asper, GM

Franchise #16

 

 

History Brief:Aaron Anderson used his banking connections to finance a purchase of Franchise #16 following Brian Asperís departure during the 2015 season, becoming the 6th owner of a franchise that was established in 1981. Asper had taken control of Franchise #16 when he purchased the Binghamton Triplets at an estate sale, moving the team to Brooklyn in time for the 2007 season. Franchise #16 spent 18 years as the Kennett Komets under the guidance of Pennsylvanian Bill Kirwin before the team was repossessed and sold to the Lundeen family in 2002. Former owners Bill Kirwin and Larry Lundeen are both deceased.

The original owner of Franchise #16 was Jeff David, playing two seasons as the Raritan Rags, and finishing last in the Metro Division with an average of 55 wins. The team collapsed under massive debt, allowing Mark Glim to take over the ailing franchise. Glim was an experienced TCBA owner, having operated Franchise #14 for three seasons 1975-1977, before giving way to the ruthless, and now deceased, Dick Gilbert, who seized the franchise an nearly brought TCBA to a premature demise during what is commonly known in TCBA history as the Dark Ages.

Out of the darkness rode the now deceased Bill Kirwin, who snatched control of Franchise #16, pouring beer and money into the troubled franchise until it finally showed signs of life.

Overall Franchise #16 has made five trips to the playoffs in its 33 seasons of TCBA play. That includes two Wildcard appearances (2006,2013), and three Division crowns (2005, 2007, 2014).
