The Erie BayHawks were a team in the NBA Development League. The team played its home games at the Louis J. Tullio Arena in Erie, Pennsylvania.
The "BayHawks" name was a reference to Presque Isle Bay, on which the city of Erie lies. The hawk represented the city's wildlife and naval history, as the greatly respected birds were used by naval expeditions to send important messages. The team's colors of black, red, and gold payed homage to the Erie-based Oliver Hazard Perry and to the naval uniforms worn during the American Revolution.
The majority owner of the Erie BayHawks is Steve Demetriou, with Ron Sertz as the team president. Sertz is also a minority owner of the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League.
