Loma Verde was originally created as the Balco Bombers in the 2008 EKL expansion. The team was founded by Mark Kranz, younger brother to Craggy Island's Robert Kranz. The younger Kranz quit the league after a stream of unsportsmanlike conduct put him at odds with the other owners. The team was picked up by Mike Ortiz in 2009 and the name was changed. The team has been in its current iteration ever since.
