Hoffman Wolff returns to the summer-collegiate New York Collegiate Baseball League.
Hoffman Wolff is the new general manager of the Elmira Pioneers (summer collegiate; New York Collegiate Baseball League). Wolff will oversee all aspects of the club’s marketing, promotions and game-day operations.
Wolff arrives in Elmira after spending the 2008 season as the director of operations for the Atlantic City Surf (independent; Can-Am Association), where he managed media relations, in-game promotions and various marketing and sales initiatives. He was part of a staff that worked to increase the Surf’s average attendance by 24 percent from the previous season. The club also set a franchise record with an average of 2,719 fans per game, and broke the Can-Am League record with 8,016 spectators at the team’s July 3 game.
Previously, Wolff spent the 2007 season as the general manager of the Little Falls Miners (summer collegiate; NYCBL). There, the club’s attendance rose 60 percent from the previous year in one of the league’s smallest markets. He also served as the league’s secretary.
Wolff has also worked as a media relations assistant at the University at Albany, as the director of media relations for the Can-Am League and Central League, and as an operations assistant for the Burlington Indians (rookie; Appalachian League).
A native of Durham, N.C., Wolff received a B.A. in French from Roanoke College.
Wolff takes over from Tom Sullivan, who spent the previous five seasons as GM of the Pioneers, and oversaw the club’s transition to the NYCBL.
