Andrew Daugherty is joining the Milwaukee Brewers, as he has been named general manager of Maryvale Baseball Park, the club’s spring training home.
“We are pleased to bring Andrew aboard in a leadership position as we prepare to renovate and assume operations of our Spring Training complex at Maryvale Baseball Park,” said Tyler Barnes, Brewers Senior Vice President – Communications and Affiliate Operations. “Andrew brings a wealth of experience in the industry, and his qualifications will be key to our efforts as we move forward.”
Daugherty, 35, will be responsible for overseeing the year-round operation and maintenance of the Maryvale Baseball Park and complex in Phoenix. He joins the Brewers from the Reno Aces (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League), where he served as assistant general manager (2014-16) before he was promoted to executive vice president (2016-17).
“It is truly an honor to join the Brewers organization,” said Daugherty. “The future is extremely bright for Maryvale Baseball Park, and I’m excited to be a part of the improvements that will occur over the next several years. Ultimately, it is my goal to not only have a first-class facility for player development but to also enhance the overall fan experience.”
Prior to his stint with Reno, Daugherty worked 11 years with the Idaho Falls Chukars (Rookie; Pioneer League), first as an intern (2004-05), then as director of public relations (2005-08), and finally as assistant general manager (2008-14). Daugherty also has experience in the Brewers organization, serving as director of food and beverage with the Helena Brewers (Rookie; Pioneer League) from July to September 2005.
Daugherty graduated from Indiana University in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in sports management and a minor in business. The Plainfield, Indiana native will relocate from Reno, Nevada to Phoenix with his rescue dog, Princess, an 11-year-old pit bull terrier.
