Sacramento Solons - 1925-1962

Gerry Hobbs, GM

Franchise #12

 

History Brief: The Franchise #12 began play in Baltimore in 1921 as Walter MacEachern's BaySox. In 1925, math geek Gerry Hobbs calculated an opportunity, purchased the franchise, and moved it to Sacramento, where the team stayed until 1962. Thirty-seven years after originally selling the club, Walter MacEachern re-purchased the franchise from Hobbs and moved the team back to Baltimore to once again play as the BaySox. Always the quick-profit seeker, MacEachern sold the club five years later to Dave May, a former police officer in Niagara Falls. The league urged May to divest himself of the franchise after only one season, and he obliged with a quick transfer of ownership to educator and long-time league supporter, Jesse Elicker, who moved the team to Gettysburg. In 1975, the sums added up for Professor Hobbs, and he re-purchased his team, first settling in Potsdam and then moving to the present-day Raiders headquarters in Morgantown.
