WPBL Team Rosters Announced

November 1, 2012


The WPBL will consist of twelve teams in two divisions, North and South. While the majority of the teams are located in major cities throughout the United States, Canada will compete with its own team, the Toronto Blue Sharks. The league also boasts a strong international presence, including superstars Thorsten Hohmann, Darren Appleton, Mika Immonen, Warren Kiamco, and Raj Hundal.



The locations have been chosen based on several factors, mainly the popularity of billiards in the surrounding communities, as well as the place of residence for the league's key players.



Each team is comprised of 4 players: a captain, two regulars, and an alternate (to be chosen at a later date). The teams are as follows:



SOUTH DIVISION


Atlanta Scorpions: Johnny Archer, Dennis Hatch, Shannon Daulton

Miami Cruise: Corey Deuel, Hunter Lombardo, Jose Parica

Las Vegas Dice: John Schmidt, Charlie Williams, Mike Davis

Los Angeles Wave: Oscar Dominguez, Ernesto Dominguez, Louis Ulrich

Phoenix Fire: Scott Frost, Tommy Kennedy, Manny Chau

Houston Hustlers: Jeremy Jones, Chip Compton, Justin Hall



NORTH DIVISION


Toronto Blue Sharks: Jason Klatt, John Morra, Erik Hjorleifson

Philadelphia Aces: Darren Appleton, Stevie Moore, Brandon Shuff

Minnesota Outlawas: Thorsten Hohmann, Ralf Souquet, Jesse Engel

Chicago Rockets: Rodney Morris, Raj Hundal, Mika Immonen

Pittsburgh Poison: Shawn Putnam, Adam Smith, Sylver Ochoa

New York Pride: Earl Strickland, Larry Nevel, Warren Kiamco



Team logos are currently being finalized, enabling each team to have its own custom visual identity, including team jerseys, colors, and merchandising.


Additional details to follow during the upcoming weeks as the league prepares for launch November 29th.
