They said St. Louis couldn’t have a professional basketball club and team owner Milan Pepper and GM/Coach Harold Webster is here to prove them wrong. It was early 2010 when MP and Harold met to formulate a plan on how to put a competitive team on the floor and deliver family entertainment and community outreach that the city could not only benefit from but willfully support.
St. Louis is a sports town, we all know this and whether it’s the Saint Louis Cardinals, the St. Louis Blues, or the Rams the denizens bleed red and blue at the same time. Enter the St. Louis Trotters armed with the moniker, “Bringing the ‘Spirit’ of professional basketball back to St. Louis, MO” and a desire to show these teams in the IBA (Independent Basketball Association) that they are ready to dominate the league.
Saturday November 3rd at 7:00pm and Sunday Nov 4th at 3:00pm marks the teams season opener. The first team up for destruction are the Battle Creek Knights out of Battle Creek Michigan. The Sunday match up is against the 2-time IBA League Champions, the Kankakee County Soldiers. Director of Team Operations, D. Smith says, “We have a lot of respect for all the teams that we will play in the IBA but we wanna run all these guys out of the city and do it in style!” Admission to all the Trotter’s home games are $5.00 for adults and children 12 and under enter free. This season’s home games will be played in the Richard B. Loynd Gymnasium of the Mathews Dickey Boys’ and Girls’ Club on N. Kingshighway and will hosted by DJ’s with other surprises for the attendees.
