The Modesto Nuts (High A; California League) have a new general manager in place, as the team has hired Zach Brockman for the position.
Brockman previously worked for the Nuts from 2008 – 2011 as an Account Executive and Director of Ticket Sales. Following his first stint in Modesto, Brockman worked for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (High A; Carolina League) and the Tulsa Drillers (Class AA; Texas League).
“We are very excited to bring Zach Brockman back to the Modesto Nuts family,” said Executive Vice President Mike Gorrasi. “Zach has proven to be a dynamic and forward thinking sales leader in our industry. We are confident he will thrive in his new role as General Manager.”
Brockman was a member of the Nuts front office staff that set five consecutive franchise attendance records. He also played a vital role in the planning and execution of the 2011 California League All-Star game.
“I’d like to thank Mike Savit and Mike Gorrasi for this opportunity,” said Brockman. “Both have been incredibly influential in my career. Modesto gave me my first opportunity to work in professional sports and I couldn’t be happier to be back.”
“The game of baseball has had a tremendous impact on my life,” continued Brockman. “There are countless lessons that I’ve learned along the way that have helped shape who I am both from a personal and professional standpoint. More importantly, this game has given me the privilege of meeting and connecting with amazing people in every market I’ve worked in. I cannot wait to reunite with old friends and make a lot of new ones as we grow our community footprint in the Modesto market.”
