HELLCATS MAY HAVE FOUND NEW HOME OWNER IN HARTFORD
Published February 3, 1995
The CBA's Hellcats "may be back in business," according to this morning's HARTFORD COURANT. After folding Monday, the Connecticut Development Authority announced yesterday that Brian Foley, owner of a health care company in CT, had put up $750,000 to operate the team. The deal would still need to be approved by the CBA, and it requires that the team stay at the Hartford Civic Center for the rest of the year. After this season, Foley could move the team to another venue. Foley would also not be "responsible for the debts" of the previous owner, the Hartford Sports and Exposition Group. The team "was reassembled in the past two days and flown -- at Foley's expense" to their next game site in Illinois (Roy Hasty, HARTFORD COURANT, 2/3).
