ABA Adds St. Louis Spirits to Expansion Teams


Indianapolis, IN. The American Basketball Association (ABA) today announced that it has added the St. Louis Spirits to its growing list of expansion teams for the upcoming season. “This is very exciting for us,” stated ABA co-founder Joe Newman. “The original Spirits of St. Louis were a legendary ABA team, the city where NBC’s Bob Costas got his start in sports as the announcer and home of many legendary ABA players. It is about time we returned and with a great new owner.

The team will be owned by Damon L. Cannon, an avid sports enthusiast, a Riverview Gardens High School graduate who played baseball, football and wrestled there. He is also an alumnus of the University of Tulsa and Southeast Missouri State universities where he played football.

He currently owns the St. Louis Spirit professional football team and is co-owner of the 3-time champion Midwest Chargers football team. He is a Chief Apostle of the United Body of Christ Ministries. “I am a native of St. Louis and love being involved in community access projects,” added Cannon. “My current project is Thrush 5000 Community Enhancement Project which works on cleaning up the neighborhood and thriving to change the image of an at-risk community. I am looking forward to establishing a team in the ABA and will do everything in my power to be an asset to the organization.”
