The new Nashua (N.H.) team in the start-up Futures Collegiate Baseball League announced its first hires: Tim Geromini, Jarrod FitzGerald and Mike Chambers.
The team will be owned by Eric Butelin and managed by the Lowell Spinners of the Class-A New York-Penn League. Butelin, a business owner from Milwaukee, Wis., has over 35 years of experience in banking and IT services and has held management positions with IBM and First Wisconsin Bank.
Two full-time front office members have been hired for the 2011 season. Tim Geromini, a native of Franklin, Mass., was named the Director of Business Development, while Jarrod FitzGerald, a native of Dracut, Mass., is the club’s Director of Creative Services. Both had completed internships with the Lowell Spinners (short season A; NY-Penn League) in 2010.
The team will be managed by Londonderry, N.H., native and former Boston Red Sox farmhand Mike Chambers, currently an assistant coach at Franklin Pierce University. Chambers will be assisted by longtime Nashua South High School head coach B.J. Neverett.
“It’s great to be able to bring the Futures League to a quality market like Nashua and a terrific facility in Holman Stadium. We’re sure that fans will appreciate and enjoy summer collegiate baseball and its exciting style of play,” Hall said.
“We are thrilled to partner with the City of Nashua and Eric in bringing baseball back to Holman Stadium,” added Spinners’ Vice President and General Manager Tim Bawmann. “As a Nashua resident, I am well aware of the passion for the game of baseball within the community, and we look forward to providing affordable family entertainment and great baseball.”
