Thursday, 02 November 2006 12:00
Frontier LeagueThe Gateway Grizzlies announced today that former Frontier League All-Star and Grizzlies' all-time hits leader Phil Warren has been named as the field manager for the Frontier League club.

Warren replaces Danny Cox, who resigned the position last month. He becomes the fourth manager in the team's history. Former River City Rascals manager Randy Martz has also joined the staff as the Grizzlies' pitching coach.

Warren, a St. Louis native, is back in uniform after spending the 2006 season as the Grizzlies Director of Player Personnel. Prior to the 2006 season, he spent three seasons on the playing field for the Grizzlies and parts of six seasons total in the Frontier League.

Warren retired following the 2005 season, holding many of the Grizzlies career offensive records including most games (270), most at-bats (1016), most home runs (45) and most RBIs (181). Warren holds 11 total Grizzlies career offensive records.

"I'm honored," Warren said of the appointment. "It has definitely been a goal of mine to manage and there's no other place I would rather start. I never anticipated that it would happen this fast."

South Coast LeagueSouth Coast League Finalizes 6th Inaugural Franchise

ANDERSON, S.C. — The South Coast League is proud to announce that an agreement has been reached to bring professional baseball to Anderson, South Carolina.

The Anderson club will play a 45-game home schedule beginning in May of 2007. League officials have reached an agreement with the City of Anderson for the lease of Anderson Memorial Stadium, located on White Street, just south of Shockley Ferry Rd. The lease carries a two-year term beginning with the 2007 Inaugural Season of South Coast League play.

“We project Anderson to be a tremendous market for independent professional baseball,” stated SCL Chief Executive Officer Jamie Toole. “We have enjoyed working with Mayor Terence Roberts, City Manager John Moore, Anderson University Athletic Director Bobby Beville, and Anderson University Head Baseball Coach Joe Miller to bring this agreement together.”

Anderson becomes the second SCL South Carolina market, joining the nearby Aiken franchise. The two South Carolina clubs will join Albany, Ga., and Macon, Ga., as well as Charlotte County, Fla., and Bradenton, Fla., to compete in the 2007 Inaugural Season of South Coast League play.

“Baseball has the highest participation of any youth sport in our recreation program,” said Anderson City Councilman Tony Stewart. “Having a professional baseball team in Anderson will generate a great deal of excitement for people of all ages.”

The Anderson club will call Anderson Memorial Stadium home. Legion Field, which was later to become known as Anderson Memorial Stadium, was built in 1970 to replace Nardin Field. With a seating capacity of 2,500, Anderson Memorial has been home to various teams including major league affiliates of the Braves, Mets, Senators, and Tigers. After the Braves left following the 1985 season, the stadium continued to host many amateur baseball leagues as well as the Anderson University Trojans (NCAA Division II) baseball team.

“The city’s agreement with the South Coast League complements the existing recreation partnership with Anderson University and allows flexibility for future use by the University, the City and the South Coast League. We welcome this new entertainment option for our community,” said Mayor Roberts.

“Anderson University is excited to be a part of bringing professional baseball back to the City of Anderson," said AU athletic director Bobby Beville. "The Anderson franchise and the South Coast League will bring some improvements to Anderson Memorial Stadium, which will be a positive for our baseball program."

Anderson becomes the sixth and final charter SCL club. The South Coast League is a six-team based independent professional baseball league located in the Southeastern U.S. First pitch is scheduled for May of 2007.

South Coast LeagueCONYERS, GA – The South Coast League of Professional Baseball, the southeast’s newest independent baseball league, is pleased to announce the addition of Kurt Hunzeker as Director of Corporate Development. His responsibilities will include overseeing the corporate development and promotions departments for the SCL, with a focus on establishing league-wide corporate partnerships.

The St. Louis native also works with numerous companies and agencies as a consultant in various marketing capacities. His clients include KiDS ScoreCard, OneSuite Sports and a number of sports properties.

“Working for a sports property, especially one with the talent, community support and resources of the South Coast League, is simply a dream come true for me,” explained Hunzeker. “Since I sat on the other side of the sponsorship equation in previous jobs, I know what companies look for and need to justify their sponsorship investment, and I am looking forward to building innovative programs, generating new revenues and maintaining lasting relationships with our corporate partners.”

Working in the sports business industry throughout his career, Hunzeker spearheaded the NBA Jam Van mobile marketing campaign, served as an editor for a leading sports marketing publication, authored a book on sports advertising and led an award-winning, multi-city event platform for Nike. More than 500 unique visitors read his online sports marketing blog each month. He now lives in Atlanta with his wife, Catrina.

“Adding someone like Kurt to our staff is going to pay immediate dividends for the league,” shared South Coast League CEO Jamie Toole. "He is an established name in the sports business industry and we’re excited to have him on board.”

The South Coast League’s inaugural 90-game season opens in May of 2007. The South Coast League will be a six-team based independent professional baseball league located in the Southeastern U.S.

Danny Cox, manager of Grizzlies, steps down Print
Written by Press Release   
Friday, 20 October 2006 12:48

Gateway GrizzliesThe Gateway Grizzlies have announced that Danny Cox has stepped down as manager of the Frontier League club. Cox has left the Grizzlies to pursue other opportunities.

Cox has been with the team since its inaugural season. He was hired as the team’s field manager in February 2003, after spending the 2001 and 2002 seasons as the club’s pitching coach.

Cox led the team to a franchise record for wins in each of his first two seasons, including the 2004 season’s 56 regular season wins. He suffered his only losing season at the helm in 2006 when the Grizzlies finished 42-52-1. His 197 wins rank him eighth all-time among Frontier League managers. His 197-175 all-time mark gives him a .530 winning percentage.

"Danny brought the Grizzlies to prominence when he took over,”" Grizzlies Managing Partner Rich Sauget said. “"He completely turned the club around on the field and we are grateful for the time he spent here and proud of the body of work he leaves behind.”"

In 2003, his first as manager, Cox guided the Grizzlies to the franchise’s only Frontier League title. The 2004 team lost in the semi-finals to eventual-champion Rockford. In 2005 the Grizzlies used a 30-21 second-half mark to come within two games of a third consecutive playoff appearance. He is 7-3 all-time in post-season play.

"It has been great working with Danny the past few years,”" Grizzlies General Manager Tony Funderburg said. “"We wish him nothing but the best.”"

Cox joined the Grizzlies after spending 11 seasons in Major League baseball. He spent six of those seasons in a St. Louis Cardinals uniform. The Grizzlies have not decided on Cox’s replacement.

The Grizzlies will begin their seventh season in the Frontier League in May 2007. Full-season and half-season ticket packages are currently on sale, and can be purchased by visiting GCS Ballpark, or calling the Grizzlies office at 618-337-3000.

South Coast League staff continues to grow Print
Written by Press Release   
Sunday, 15 October 2006 12:00

South Coast LeagueOctober 16, 2006 - CONYERS, GA – The South Coast League of Professional Baseball, the southeast’s newest independent minor league baseball circuit, has tabbed Garrett Ball as the Vice President of South Carolina Operations. He will oversee all business and operational aspects of the SCL’s current Aiken, SC franchise, as well as any future South Carolina expansion markets. The league made this announcement today - 7 months before they are set to launch the 2007 Inaugural Season of play.

Ball, 26, comes to the South Coast League after two seasons in the Carolina League as Corporate Sales Manager with the Atlanta Braves Class A affiliate, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. There, he sold corporate sponsorships and season and group tickets, while overseeing the game-day staff. Prior to his time with the Pelicans, Ball served as General Manager of the Thomasville (N.C.) HiToms of the Coastal Plain League, where he directed all aspects of the collegiate summer league organization.

"We are thrilled to name Garrett as our VP of South Carolina Operations. The communities he will be involved with will be proud to have an individual like Garrett leading their teams into the inaugural season," said South Coast League Chief Executive Officer Jamie Toole. "I know that his leadership, experience, and commitment to the community will serve him well in this new role. I cannot think of anybody better suited to oversee our South Carolina operations."

"I look forward to becoming an integral part of the communities that support SCL franchises," said Ball. "It is a tremendous honor and opportunity for me to be involved at the ground level of a new league. I am eager to partner with communities that have shown such incredible enthusiasm for establishing professional baseball as a form of affordable, family entertainment. As a whole, our teams will strive to provide a great product that the communities can be proud of and integrate our South Carolina organizations in all aspects of the areas that we serve.”

The South Coast League is a six-team based independent professional baseball league located in the Southeastern U.S. First pitch is scheduled for May of 2007.

Bradenton Pro Baseball to Unveil Name & Logo Print
Written by Press Release   
Friday, 13 October 2006 12:00
South Coast LeagueBradenton's professional baseball team has a name thanks to hundreds of suggestions from the community. That calls for a celebration!


The name and team logo will be unveiled at a public ceremony beginning at noon, Saturday October 21, in the food court at the DeSoto Square Mall. Then, starting at 8 pm that same night, the team invites everyone to join in a celebration at a World Series party at the Sport Legends Bar and Grill, 4822 14th Street West in Bradenton.


Bradenton Baseball officials reached out to the people of the greater-Manatee area to gather suggestions for the team's new moniker with a "Name the Team" contest. The community stepped to the plate in a big way and submitted more than a thousand entries of catchy names for Bradenton's newest entry into the pro sports scene.


"The response of the fans was truly overwhelming," said Omar Roque, vice president of Florida Operations for the South Coast League. "We believe this a great indication of just how strongly the area will support professional baseball in Bradenton in 2007."


The "Name the Team" contest winner will be announced at the unveiling ceremony. That lucky person will receive two 2007 season tickets, Bradenton Baseball Merchandise and the right to present the 2007 Opening Day lineup Card to the umpire prior to the start of the game.


The team hopes everyone will join their celebration party at Sport Legends Saturday night. The World Series will be playing on the big screens. Between innings, promotions and contests will be held with many great prizes up for grabs.





The Bradenton ball club will take the field at Robert C. Wynn Field located on the campus of Manatee Community College. Unlike minor league teams that are affiliated, the Independent Bradenton franchise will be responsible for scouting, signing and paying their own players. Offering fan-friendly, affordable fun, they will join five other charter franchises to begin South Coast League play in May of 2007.
