  • Chou to Step Down as Sea Dogs GM +

    The Seattle Sea Dogs regretfully announced today that Anthony Chou will be stepping down as GM of the franchise following the conclusion of the season.

Drumm’s arrival signaled the beginning of Seattle’s fortunes as their team made the playoffs the following two years. In 2014, GM Chou orchestrated two defining moves for the franchise in signing both Lou Gracchi and Philip Glavocich in free agency. The Salt Hounds have since become one of the elite Read More

  • Sea Dogs Lock Up 1st Seed in the National Conference +

    With a thrilling come from behind victory in Buzzards Arena, the Seattle Sea Dogs locked up 1st overall seed for the 2016 OBWL Playoffs.

Joseph Drumm played particularly and proved why he’s one of the most clutch players in the game. Drumm played like a man possessed in the fourth, making several steals and even a block on the defensive end while scoring 14 points in the quarter. Fittingly, his biggest Read More

  • Another Season Down to the Last Game +

    2015 OBWL Finals. Game 7. Just as with 2014, the season comes down to a final game where the winner is crowned and declared world’s best. This year, the Sea Dogs face another talented team in the Anaheim Archers. The series itself has been a series of haymakers back and forth, with each team winning decisive victories. Anaheim drew first blood delivering a convincing game 1 victory on the road and earning “home court advantage” for the rest of the series. The Archers would continue to pressure, going up 3 games to 1 by taking games 3 and 4 at home and jumping to a commanding 3 to 1 series lead. But the Salt Hounds would not go that quietly Read More

With 20 seconds to go and down by one, the Sea Dogs gained possession of the ball and the Manhattan crowd was going crazy trying to spur on the home team and its powerful defense. The Salt Hounds ran an isolation play for Glavocich as he took on his defender one on one. Faking the shot, Glavo got his Read More
