A HARBOR FOR HOCKEY? LEFFLER SEEKS IHL TEAM FOR BALTIMORE
Published March 5, 1998
Robert Leffler, owner of the Leffler Ad Agency, confirmed that he has filed a letter of intent with the IHL to bring a team to Baltimore, according to Jon Morgan of the Baltimore SUN. Leffler believes "the right combination of money and marketing could make [pro hockey] finally succeed" in Baltimore. Leffler, who may try to "lure a relocated or expansion team," remains convinced that hockey could "thrive" in the city. He did not say where the team would play if he did land a franchise (Baltimore SUN, 3/5).
