Portsmouth Pubdwellers (#15) - 1926-1935, 1953-1962

Portsmouth Pubdwellers (#5) -  1997-2011

Casey Lyman, GM

 

History Brief: Fear of European immigration seeping into the country through Canada led US Attorney General Mitchell Palmer to convince brewer Casey Lyman to legitimize his business and invest in Franchise #15, which in 1926 was based near Toronto. That brought the Newmarket EH's across the border to Portsmouth, where they stayed until 1935. With the Red Scare and Prohibition a distant memory, Lyman returned to brewing, raising funds by selling his team to Jim Beeman, who moved the team to Covington for the 1934 season. In the winter of 1952-53, Lyman reinvested in Franchise #15 as a commercial tie-in with his brewery. Ten years later, the team was re-purchased by Newmarket's Canadian Hockey tycoon, Ed Hebscher.

In 1997, for a third time, Casey Lyman used his brewery profits to once again invest in TCBA, this time picking up the disbanded Bergen team of Franchise #5. Lyman reoccupied the Portsmouth facilities, established a solid fan base, and was a solid TCBA franchise owner until the conclusion of the 2011 season, at which time he retired from TCBA. The #5 franchise was transferred to John Christopher, who moved the team to Tiger Bay for the start of the 2012 season.
