The Pilots--Seattle's Forgotten Major League Team
With the move of the Seattle Super Sonics, both Major League teams that Seattle hosted in the 1960s have left town and assumed new names and identities. If the Sonics had Clay Bennett, the Pilots had Bud Selig, who like Bennett, wanted a Major team in his home town. Today, Selig is commission of Major League Baseball, although he won't get many cheers in this area. At least not many more than former NBA commissioner David Stern. Stern was Bennett's ally in the Sonics departure.
I found this video on the history of the Pilots. You can click here to see it.
