Day will remain involved in the Blue Crabs front office while overseeing the business side of the New Britain Bees (independent; Atlantic League).
“We are fortunate to have a deep bench in the organization,” Day said. “Courtney Knichel will be assuming the role of Blue Crabs General Manager in the transition, and we will also be adding some new staff members. Courtney is, of course, well known in the community having been with the Blue Crabs since our first game in 2008.”
“This is an extraordinary opportunity and one that I am very humbled to accept,” said Knichel, a lifelong Southern Maryland resident. “I’ve been with the Blue Crabs since the inception of the team, helping to build it from the ground up. I can’t thank the ownership group enough for the trust they are bestowing upon me and I am looking very forward to all of the excitement that the 2016 season is sure to bring!”
