In Mobile, the BayBears promoted two staff members to assistant general managers, working alongside BayBears General Manager Chris Morgan.
Ari Rosenbaum and Bradley Reynolds were promoted by Morgan, who joined the BayBears late in the 2014 campaign as general manager. “Prior to coming on board back in August, I had a chance to visit with both Ari and Bradley and came away very impressed with their work ethic and enthusiasm to take the BayBears organization to a different level in 2015 and beyond,” Morgan said. “Having quality people like Ari and Bradley on our team will certainly help us as we work to reenergize the BayBears brand within the community.” Both Rosenbaum and Reynolds managed the day-to-day operations during the 2014 season under the guidance of HWS Baseball Executive Vice President Mike Gorrasi.
Rosenbaum enters his 10th season with Mobile in 2015. For the better part of a decade, Rosenbaum oversaw the BayBears community outreach program. In his new role as Assistant General Manager of Game Operations and Community Relations, Rosenbaum will continue to provide oversight for the BayBears community outreach efforts, but will now work with Morgan to create weekly and in-game promotions as well as oversee all of the team’s graphic design efforts.
Reynolds first joined the BayBears in August of 2012, coming from the fellow HWS Baseball-owned Modesto Nuts, (Advanced-A / California League). After two full seasons as the BayBears Director of Sales, Reynolds now serves as the BayBears Assistant General Manager of Sales. The new role allows Reynolds to work alongside Morgan to oversee all sales and marketing efforts.
With a new general manager and two assistant general managers, the BayBears front office also retains Kyne Sheehy in the role of Director of Sales, Nathan Breiner as the BayBears Director of Stadium Operations and Justin Baker as the team’s Director of Broadcasting and Media Relations. Sheehy, Baker and Breiner enter their third year with the Mobile front office and they are joined by Betty Adams, the BayBears’ Director of Finance and Business Operations who enters her 19th season with the team.
In Fort Wayne, the TinCaps announced the additions of three former seasonal employees to full-time positions, as well as a change in roles for another.
Tara Cahill, a Fort Wayne native and Ball State alumna, is transitioning from Ticket Account Manager to Community Engagement and Promotions Manager. Cahill first joined the organization in 2013 as an intern.
Meanwhile, Jared Law is the team’s new Assistant Video Production Manager. The Ball State product by way of Carmel, Ind., worked as a Video Production Assistant during the 2014 season.
Dalton McGill is now a Ticket Account Manager. The Trine University alum from Portland, Ind., had been an intern in the Ticket Office since January.
John Nolan is the team’s Broadcasting and Media Relations Manager. Nolan, an Edison, N.J., native who went to Syracuse University, was the team’s Broadcasting and Media Relations Assistant each of the last two seasons.
“Most times when you bring in a new co-worker it’s because someone has left,” TinCaps President Mike Nutter said. “We’ve been blessed to work with some amazing people here at Parkview Field, and when you can help them realize their potential they become sought after for national jobs, promotions, and new opportunities.
“This new batch of TinCaps staffers have some big shoes to fill, but we are 100 percent confident they can shine and excel in their new roles.”
About one-third of the team’s full-time staff started with the TinCaps as an intern.
