We have personnel news today from the Everett AquaSox (short season A; Northwest League) and the Jamestown Jammers (summer collegiate; Prospect League).
The AquaSox announced five new additions to the front office team: Kirstin Mahoney, Kenny Lindberg, Justen Oslund, Rick Maddox, and Emily Petterson.
Mahoney is returning to the AquaSox as the Community Relations and Website Coordinator. She was an intern with the club in 2013. Originally from McMinnville, Oregon, Kirstin is looking forward to the similar hometown feel here in Everett.
Lindberg brings his experiences with the Jamestown Jammers, Auburn Doubledays, and the Erie Otters hockey team to the Everett front office. Oslund, a recent Washington State University graduate, previously spent time with WSU Marketing and with the Whitworth University Sponsorship and Sales Department. Both are new account executives.
Maddox joins the AquaSox team as the Director of Food and Beverage. A Seattle area native, Rick brings over twenty years of experience to the ballpark.
Petterson will be representing the Everett AquaSox front office as this season’s front desk manager/receptionist. As a graduate of Western Washington University, Emily previously served as a WWU play-by-play announcer, on-air reporter, and social media outreach specialist.
“We are excited to welcome these new staff members to the AquaSox family,” stated General Manager, Danny Tetzlaff. “They bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm to the office daily – which will only help us at the ballpark as we strive to provide the absolute best summer entertainment in Snohomish County and the surrounding area.”
Tony Fritsch is the new Business Manager of the new Jamestown Jammers. Fritsch, from Berkey, Ohio, graduated from Bowling Green State University in August of 2013 with a Bachelor of Science degree in sports management. He will be responsible for day-to-day operations of the team, as well as marketing, business and game-day development.
“We’re extremely happy to have Tony join the Jammers,” said MKE Sports & Entertainment VP of Operations Dan Kuenzi. “He is highly experienced and brings a wealth of knowledge to our team. Tony is a wonderful addition not only to the Jammers but to the Jamestown community.
In 2014, Tony served as Director of Game Day Operations, Sales and Marketing for the Prospect League’s West Virginia Miners. In 2013, he was a race coordinator for the Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston, S.C.
“The City of Jamestown is something special and it’s really exciting to be a part of this new and revitalized Jammers team,” Fritsch said. “This summer is going to be electrifying with the new Jammers in town and I could not be more eager for the season to start.”
