BeaversColbert returns for fourth season; Castro, Lance, Sinon round out staff

PORTLAND, Ore. — Craig Colbert will return as the manager of the Portland Beavers for a fourth season, it was announced yesterday as the San Diego Padres named the 2007 field staff for their Triple-A affiliate.

Hitting coach Jose Castro and pitching coach Gary Lance both return to Portland for a third season, while athletic trainer Will Sinon is set to mark his second campaign with the club.

In three seasons at the helm of the Beavers, Colbert, 41, has compiled a 222-209 (.515) record. Portland went 68-76 under Colbert in 2006, with the club finishing third in the Pacific Conference North Division of the Pacific Coast League.

In 2004, Colbert, who resides in Portland, led the Beavers to a division title, a playoff berth and the best record in Triple-A Baseball at 84-60.

Colbert’s return marks just the fourth time in the Beavers’ 92-year franchise history that a manager will lead the team for a fourth consecutive season.

HooksRogers named Director of Communications, Nuse takes over Group Sales

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas -- Two members of the Corpus Christi Hooks front office staff are taking on new roles with the club.

Team president J.J. Gottsch announced Director of Group Sales Matt Rogers has shifted to the newly created position of Director of Communications and Adam Nuse has been promoted from Account Executive to Director of Group Sales.

"Fall is when we take a look at the entire operation," Gottsch said. "And, sometimes we make adjustments. Matt came to us as Director of Group Sales in December after eight seasons with the Astros, but he worked in media relations in college athletics for many years before moving into professional baseball. He'll work closely with Matt Hicks to advance our media initiatives."

"From the beginning, Adam has been a top producer for us and it's time to recognize his contributions. He came up in the Ryan-Sanders organization, so we've enjoyed watching him learn and grow."

Rogers earned a Journalism degree at Houston in 1982 and spent 17 years as a publicist at Houston, Baylor, Sam Houston State and Georgia Southern. With the Astros, he worked as a manager in group and season-ticket sales and was extensively involved in marketing, customer service, operations and special projects like the 2004 All-Star Game and Minute Maid College Classic. Rogers currently directs the Whataburger College Classic for the Hooks.

Nuse, 25, moved to Corpus Christi in August 2004 after earning his Master's degree in Sports Administration at Wichita State. He is a 2003 Marketing graduate of the University of Oklahoma. Nuse's sports sales experience includes stints with Ryan-Sanders' Round Rock Express, the Oklahoma RedHawks and Wichita State athletics.

Mandalay Baseball Properties, owner of the Hagerstown Suns, promoted C.J. Johnson to Assistant General Manager.

Previously the team's Senior Director of Marketing, Johnson will take on additional administrative responsibilities.

Johnson has worked with the Suns the past four seasons, beginning as an intern and earning a promotion to Director, Marketing and then Senior Director, Marketing. The LaVale, Md. native is a graduate of West Virginia University.

"I'm looking forward to building on the successful foundation we have laid over the past five years," said Johnson. "We don't draw 150,000 baseball fans, we draw 150,000 Suns fans, and that really sets us apart from other teams."

"Through our four years of working together, C.J. has proved to be invaluable. I look forward to working more closely with him as we begin our affiliation with the Washington Nationals and truly congratulate him on his promotion," said Suns General Manager Will Smith.

Smith was recently promoted to General Manager when Kurt Landes left the team for another opportunity. On Wednesday, it was announced that Landes was named the General Manager of the Triple-A baseball team headed for the Lehigh Valley.

Landes left the Suns in September after completing his fifth season. The Lehigh Valley team will open a new ballpark in Allentown, Pa. in 2008.

The Hagerstown Suns of the South Atlantic League are the new Class A affiliate of the Washington Nationals and are owned by Los Angeles based Mandalay Baseball Properties. Ticket packages, group information, and sponsorships are available by calling 301.791.6266 or by visiting the Suns at www.hagerstownsuns.com.

 
Group looks to bring baseball back to Lorain PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Wednesday, 04 October 2006 12:00

A group of supporters hopes to bring baseball back to Lorain, OH, either in the form of an Independent League club, or Minor League club, possibly associated with the Indians.

Bambi Dillon, a resident who supports bringing a professional team to the city, said a group is organizing a meeting to try and find out how much interest there is in Lorain and the surrounding area for a team.

'It's a quality of life issue,'' said Randy Renick, another member of the group. Renick is the former coach of the Lorain Internationals, a semi-pro baseball team which no longer exists.

Renick said he thinks Lorain is big enough to support a minor league professional team, and many people are looking for a low-cost alternative to Cleveland Indians games.

The Mayor of Lorain, Craig Foltin supports the idea.

'These are people acting on their own, who are certainly no political allies of mine, by any stretch of the imagination,'' Foltin said. ''I'm glad to see some prominent sporting individuals taking a leadership role in this cause.''

ChukarsThe Royals have signed a two-year Player Development Contract with the Idaho Falls Chukars, Royals Director of Player Development J.J. Picollo announced Wednesday.

"We have had a great working relationship with Idaho Falls over the last three years," Picollo said. "We are certainly happy to continue this relationship for the next two years.

Next season will mark Idaho Falls fourth season as Kansas City's short-season Class A advanced affiliate. Over the past three seasons, Idaho Falls has made the playoffs twice, including this season's championship series.

"I am very excited to have the Royals as our Major League affiliate for another two years. There is no better way to open a brand new ballpark."

Vermont Lake MonstersNATIONALS ANNOUNCE TWO-YEAR EXTENSION OF WORKING AGREEMENT WITH VERMONT LAKE MONSTERS OF THE NY-P LEAGUE

The Washington Nationals today announced that they have signed a two-year extension to their Player Development Contract with the Vermont Lake Monsters of the short-season Single-A New York-Penn League.  Nationals President Stan Kasten made the announcement.

“We are excited to extend our working relationship with the Vermont Lake Monsters for two more years,” said Kasten. “Our franchise has enjoyed its affiliation with not only the Lake Monsters , but the City of Burlington and the New York-Penn League.  With our stated commitment to player development, the future for Vermont, and for our entire minor league system, is bright.”

The Nationals franchise’s 13-year relationship with the town of Burlington—which began in 1994 (with its entry into the NY-P League) and will now extend at least through the 2008 season—is highlighted by Vermont’s 1996 NY-P League championship.

Among the Nationals’ recent crop of prospects to don the Vermont uniform are first baseman Larry Broadway (2002), outfielder Kory Casto (2003), right-handed pitcher Clint Everts (2003), left-handed pitcher Mike O’Connor (2002) and right-handed pitcher Chris Schroder (2001).

 
Crosscutters announce affiliation with Phillies PDF Print E-mail
Written by Press Release   
Monday, 25 September 2006 12:00
CrosscuttersWilliamsport Crosscutters and the Philadelphia Phillies officials joined together at a Tuesday luncheon at the Genetti Hotel to announce a new two-year Player Development contract between the two organizations.

The deal marks the end of the Cutters affiliation with the Pittsburgh Pirates that started in 1999 and lasted for eight seasons. The Pirates announced Monday that they had signed a Player Development contract with the State College Spikes. The Phillies had spent the past 19 seasons in Batavia, N.Y.

"This is a great day for the Williamsport Crosscutters," stated club President Paul Velte. "We had a great relationship with the Pittsburgh Pirates and we wish them great success in State College. They gave us four playoff teams in eight years and two New York-Penn League titles, we couldn't ask for much more than that. But at the same time, the opportunity to partner with the Philadelphia Phillies was something we could not pass up. We have always said, internally, that the only thing better than being with the Pirates is if we could somehow get the Phillies here and today is the day."
