Cleveland Spiders - 1921-1933, 1955-1972

Craig Shifflett, GM

Franchise #9

 

History Brief: Craig Shifflett operated Franchise #9 from 1921 to the middle of the 1933 season, when he sold the team to a Baltimore investment group headed by Walter MacEachern. After a 22-year absence, Shifty reacquired the team from MacEachern near the end of the 1955 season. The team returned to Cleveland, where it stayed until 1972, when Houston high-roller Scott Brown added the franchise to his portfolio. In 1996, Shifflett would return once again, this time to purchase Franchise #4, which had been lost in Binghamton for several seasons. Shifty would move the club to Allegheny, where it stayed for more than a decade. Craig sold his franchise following the 2010 TCBA season and retired from active league participation.
