Schaumburg Boomers (independent; Frontier League) and Gary SouthShore RailCats (independent; American Association) Owner Pat Salvi and President/General Manager Andy Viano were honored by the Pitch and Hit Club of Chicago at its annual Awards Banquet.
Salvi Sports Enterprises, the parent company for both the Boomers and the RailCats, was honored with the 2014 Organization of the Year Award. Both Salvi-owned franchises won the 2013 championship in their league, the Frontier League and the American Association, respectively. In addition, Boomers GM Andy Viano was presented with the Minor League Executive of the Year Award.
“Awards like these are recognition of the amazing work done by the entire Boomers family, from our terrific front office staff to our hard-working gameday employees, our dedicated corporate partners throughout the community, the Village of Schaumburg & the Schaumburg Park District, our baseball operations department, our friends at Levy Restaurants, and, of course, would not be possible without our amazing fans,” said Viano. “It’s humbling for the organization and myself to be honored this way, and we hope to build even further on our success in 2014.”
