Gone but not Forgotten


OurSports Central has provided coverage of independent and minor league sports since 1999. In that time, a lot of teams, and several leagues, have come and gone, leaving their fans only memories.

Looking for information on a team that used to appear on OurSports Central? You've come to the right place. Here you'll find the dearly departed, those teams which have gone out of business or moved, as well as those teams and leagues for which OSC no longer provides coverage.

Teams are listed by the last league in which they played which was covered by OSC. Some active teams are also still listed under leagues which have since stopped playing or are no longer covered by OSC.
