BALTIMORE RETAINS ITS SPIRIT: SOCCER HARBORS NEW CHALLENGE
Published March 31, 1998
Edwin Hale, Sr. has entered an agreement to purchase the NPSL Baltimore Spirit. Hale, Chair of 1st Mariner Bank, said his immediate plans include changing the team name back to the Baltimore Blast and continuing to play at the Baltimore Arena (NPSL). In Baltimore, Lowell Sunderland reports that Hale operated the Blast between '89-'92. Hale said that at that time, "the league failed, not his team." His Blast averaged 8,550 a game in those three years, but he said he lost "about $30,000 a game." Hale did not disclose financial details of the deal (Baltimore SUN, 3/31).
