South Starrucca Ainspans - 1921-1974

Marty Fiehl, GM

Member of TCBA Hall of Fame

Franchise #8 and #11

 

History Brief: After seventy-seven amazing seasons in South Starrucca, Franchise #8 was sold to a California investment group in Santa Cruz in 1976. Using the proceeds from that sale, a new Franchise #11 was established by South Starrucca's former owners. The new Ainspan team won a division crown in 1977, but then suddenly closed the gates, selling what remained of a legendary franchise to Irish investor Paul McGowan. The upstart Franchise #11 has changed hands eleven times since then and is currently represented by the Rochester Cheetahs. After being sold at the end of the 1977 season, the original South Starrucca Franchise #8 changed hands five more times before being rescued by Stick Fiehl's boyhood friend, Frank Tedeschi, who moved the team to Bethesda in 1989. Stick Fiehl returned to the league in 1981, ironically rescuing Franchise #18, which had been abandoned by Tedeschi in late 1978. Fiehl moved the team from Boston in 1982, establishing what would become one of the league's most powerful and successful organizations in Scranton.
