Owner Bio

Kevin Pelton (aka TDAO, aka The Dawgs Are Out, aka the Northwest Picadilly), joined the FOBL in an official capacity after the departure of Norman Tornadoes GM Sooner, who mysteriously 'disappeared' in the Great Plains Dust Storm in 2001. (Couldn't even enjoy a 90 win season....moment of silence.)

Kevin surveyed the damage left over, said 'Screw this. Where's the water?', packed up the franchise and headed to the Northwest, where his Des Moines Delinquents have been a model franchise ever since. 1 world title, 4 straight Prarie division titles, and Hall of Famer William Reedy have not bloated the head of the soft-spoken Dawgs, who was awarded the key to the city in 2013 and promptly gave it to a sick child at the local hospital.

He does, however, have one pet peeve. "We're in Washington, damnit. Yes, I know that there is a town with the same name in Iowa. I know that, so you don't have to tell me that 650 times a day, mostly by blue-haired ladies that are upset because they traveled from some freakin' booney-ville USA charter bus to the wrong city, when they can't even give the Chamber of Commerce a call to confirm that there is actually a freakin' Major League Baseball Team in that town. I know it. We are in Washington, forchrissakes. Washington! You hear that, Bernice? With the 'I didn't know there was a town in Washington, isn't there where George Bush lives? letter. Go root for Davenport. THEY'RE in Iowa."

OK, then. Des Moines, Washington.

Franchise Lineage:
2002 to Present: Des Moines Delinquents -- Owner: Kevin Pelton (aka "TDAO")
2001: Norman Tornadoes -- Owner: "Sooner"
