We have personnel news from the Round Rock Express (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) and spring training’s Cactus League.
In Round Rock, the Express have announced that Stu Scally has been promoted to become the club’s Assistant General Manager of Sales. Scally has served as the team’s Director of Ticket Sales since 2017.
“Stu is an incredibly valuable asset to our organization, and it’s my privilege to promote him to this new role that he’s so very much earned,” Express General Manager Tim Jackson said. “Since he joined our club in 2012, he has emerged as a leader in all areas of our front office. To be able to promote internally speaks volumes not only of Stu, but to the overall strength, hard work and dedication of our entire staff, many of whom work under Stu’s guidance.”
Scally originally joined the Round Rock Express staff in October 2012 as a Senior Account Executive. Two years later, he was promoted to Manager of Ticket Sales. In January 2017, Scally was named the team’s Director of Ticket Sales, where he oversaw all aspects of ticketing and its staff for not only Express games, but all other Ryan Sanders Sports & Entertainment events, including the new Brushy Creek Amphitheater in Hutto.
“Stu’s talents extend far beyond leading our ticket sales team for Express home games,” Express President Chris Almendarez said. “He has proven time and time again that he can succeed with any type of event that we host at Dell Diamond and beyond, from soccer and rugby to concerts and everything in between. I couldn’t be more excited for him as he begins this new opportunity.”
A native of Napa, California, Scally previously worked as a Corporate Account Executive for the Sacramento River Cats (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) for two seasons. Prior to that, he spent four years at Enterprise Holdings in California. He is a 2006 graduate of the University of California at San Diego with a Bachelor of Arts in History. Scally and his wife Elyse live in Georgetown with their 19-month-old daughter Margo.
The Cactus League has named Bridget Binsbacher its first Executive Director.
Binsbacher–who was previously the Cactus League’s Director of Operations–was appointed as the circuit’s first female executive board member in 2012. In her new position, Binsbacher will oversee the Cactus League’s strategic initiatives and maintain business relationships with the 15 Major League Baseball teams that conduct spring-training operations in Arizona, among other tasks.
“We are excited to name Bridget to the newly created role of Executive Director,” Cactus League President Jeff Meyer said in a press statement. “As Director of Operations, she did a great job overcoming many challenges facing the organization. With her long experience in spring training and strong relationships statewide, Bridget is the ideal choice to lead the Cactus League.”
“Spring training is a key driver in Arizona’s economy and a source of pride for all Arizonans,” Binsbacher said in a press statement. “I look forward to working with our stakeholders to ensure the long-term vitality of the spring training industry.”
