We have personnel news to report from the Charleston RiverDogs (Low A; Sally League) and the Hudson Valley Renegades (Short Season A; NY-Penn League).
In Charleston, the RiverDogs have announced the addition of two new members to the front office, hiring Kayla Greaves as the club’s new box office manager and Ryan Perry as the director of video production.
Greaves joins the RiverDogs from Florida where she most recently worked as a box office supervisor for the United Soccer League’s Tampa Bay Rowdies. The Pennsylvania native brings a variety of experience in the sports ticketing industry having previously worked in various roles in the box office with the Tampa Bay Rays and at the Philadelphia Phillies Spring Training complex in Clearwater.
“We are excited to welcome Kayla to the RiverDogs team,” said President and General Manager Dave Echols. “We are confident that her experience previously managing a box office and her attention to detail will help her succeed right away here in Charleston.”
With Greaves taking over as box office manager, Morgan Powell who previously held the role for four seasons will transition into a new position as the client services manager.
The other latest addition to the front office, Perry joins the Charleston staff after a season as a video productions intern with the Cincinnati Reds in 2019. While working with the Reds, the Fresno, California product shot and produced video features showcased on the video board at Great American Ballpark, Reds.com, the Reds social media channels, and TV broadcasts. He’ll work closely with the RiverDogs creative team in a similar capacity in the Lowcountry.
“Ryan brings valuable experience working as an intern at the Major League level last season,” remarked Echols. “Our fans will enjoy his creative video content both at The Joe and on the RiverDogs social media platforms this year.”
The Renegades have announced that Rob Adams will serve in the position of play-by-play Broadcaster for the 2020 season.
A resident of Mahopac New York, Adams brings a wealth of broadcasting experience to the Dutch. Adams has been broadcasting local games for Mahopac High School, Greenwich High School and the Brunswick School. He has also worked for Yale University and St.John’s University doing both baseball and softball. Adams has appeared on air for the Renegades occasionally since 2001. He also called the New York-Penn League Futures game in 2008 played at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts.
“We are excited to have Rob back at the helm of our broadcasting operation,” said Steve Gliner, General Manager and President of the Hudson Valley Renegades. “Rob’s diverse background in calling almost every sport and his familiarity with our product made him the logical choice for this position”.
Adams replaces Josh Caray, who will serve as the voice of the Rocket City Trash Pandas (Class-AA; Southern League). Caray called Renegades games for the past four seasons including having the championship call when the Renegades won their third title in the 2017 New York-Penn League Championship defeating the Vermont Lake Monsters.
