HAPPY IN HARTFORD, HAMMERED IN HARRISBURG
Published February 6, 1995
While the Hartford Hellcats returned from the brink of elimination on Friday, the CBA turned to another failing franchise -- the Harrisburg Hammerheads. According to the league, the Hammerheads were shut down on Thursday for "failure to comply with the by-laws and directives of the league's board of directors." Although the league "didn't elaborate" on the team's conduct, Hammerheads owner Van Farber said that the CBA "had notified him it would fold the team if several terms were not met by last Wednesday." Farber said the two main conditions -- paying for a $72,000 court he promised to both the city and state, and acquiring an additional $50,000 line of credit -- "were impossible to meet in such a short time" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 2/5). The CBA is "expected to hold a dispersal draft" Monday, then spend whatever is necessary to rearrange schedules and travel plans (Flounders & Feeley, HARRISBURG PATRIOT, 2/5).
