Re: The Story of Driveball


Cleveland Municipal Stadium

Owner: Bruno Scarfiotti, 28. Playboy and socialite. Son of Carmine Scarfiotti, the wealthiest man in Northeastern Ohio.

Nickname: Most of the original Driveball owners saw the game as just a hobby, something to take their minds off their day jobs. But from the very start, Scarfiotti strongly believed Driveball, if harnessed correctly, could potentially become the fifth major sport in North America. A Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist scoffed at such a bold prediction, dismissing Scarfiotti as being "mad as a hatter." Originally, Scarfiotti planned to call his team the Cardinals after the Ohio state bird, but when confronted with the Plain Dealer's jab, he took the insult and made it into what he hopes would be a badge of honor.

Re: The Story of Driveball

I like the Appleseeds uniforms, and they probably would be pretty popular with the Hoosier fans of Indiana.
