SPRINGFIELD, MA March 9, 2010 – The Springfield Armor today announced that they have added Christopher Ayer to their roster to replace Tony Bobbitt who was lost due to a season-ending injury last week.

Ayer, a 6-10, 230-pound center from Tucson, Arizona, has played for the Bakersfield Jam and Utah Flash this season. In three games with Utah, he averaged 2.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 22 minutes.

“Chris brings us another defensive presence inside who also has good shooting touch” said Head Coach Dee Brown, “He has a great work ethic and we are looking forward to adding him to our roster."

Ayer will need to pass his entrance physical before suiting up for the Armor, but is expected to join the team in L.A. today before the Armor’s game against the L.A. Defenders.

The next Armor home game is on Tuesday, March 16th as Springfield faces Albuquerque in their “Irish Heritage Knight” at 7 p.m. at the MassMutual Center. Tickets are still on sale and can be purchased by logging on to or by visiting the MassMutual Center Box Office. Box Office hours are Monday through Friday, 9-5, Saturday, 10- 4.
