H-Town Astronauts join the Pro Basketball Association

Houston, Texas – The Pro Basketball Association announced on Monday that the H-Town Astronauts had entered into an agreement to join the PBA. Team owner John Lennon played professionally in the minor leagues and had overseas opportunities as a player in the KBL in Korea and wants to give players in the greater Houston and South Texas region to have some of those same opportunities. The team has a business minded owner in Lennon that is leading edge in a lot of what he does on the marketing front but the heart and soul of an athlete destined for greatness. H-Town will be playing at the KDC in Spring, Texas this season and has chosen to play in the PBA’s classic model where he will host his own home games and travel for road contests.

“The Pro Basketball Association currently has teams slated to play this season throughout the Southeast. We’re excited about a high level of Pro Basketball being played in Houston, the Gulf Coast Region, Shreveport, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, and throughout the Southeast. Our model is to have teams play in division with only 5 road games throughout the season working to keep teams in that 6-8 hour range so we can keep expenses down and make it a no-flights necessary league. We’re modeled after some of the same solid business practices of what you would find in Minor League Baseball where fierce rivalries are played out between business partners and close friends that all make for exciting entertainment from the Southeast. Similar in geography in what you’d find in the SEC conference, this division is going to be so much fun for all involved. David Day, our National Director of League Operations, and Kimberly Meadows-Clark, our Regional Director, make for a great team for the PBA and a true asset to all owners in the Association. We’re excited about John Lennon and are looking forward to his H-Town Astronauts creating some real drama with his bayou neighbors that the fans will get out of their seats and cheer for.” PBA Commissioner – Chris Terrell
