North Platte, with a population of approximately 15,000 at the time, had just seen the demise of the semi-pro league that featured the North Platte Plainsmen, a team supported by local businessmen, most notably York Hinman. Hinman, a local truck stop owner, was also involved at a different time with a team called the Hinman Oilers.
