CanAm League’s U.S. Military All-Stars To Be Run By Dan Duquette PDF Print E-mail

US Military All-StarsAccording to the Nashua Telegraph, general manager Chris Hall has been replaced by former Red Sox general manager Dan Duquette under the title of president of Boston Baseball All-Stars LLC's five-team baseball conglomerate that includes two US Military All-Stars teams, a Latin All-Star team, the Pittsfield (Mass.) Defenders of the New England Collegiate Baseball League and the Defenders. Duquette will preside over the five-team organizational hierarchy that is one of the most unique in the world today. Duquette’s home base will be the historic Holman Stadium, which is the home of the former Nashua Pride of the CanAm League; the American Defenders of New Hampshire. Holman Stadium, is a landmark, a piece of American history that has had the honor of playing host to two legends of the game; Roy Campanella and Don Newcombe. The outfield wall pays tribute to those players with their retired numbers; 36, 39, 42, the 42 for Jackie Robinson.

"Dan's your face (of the organization)," Defenders CEO Terry Allvord said on Thursday, confirming Hall's departure. "Chris did a great job, he worked very hard. We don't have any ill-will toward Chris at all. Chris put a lot of time and effort into trying to make this a success."

The US Military All-Stars, were founded in 1990 by Lieutenant Commander Terry Allvord. Since 1990, they have established over 30 military programs, becoming the fastest growing, most successful and only joint armed forces baseball program in the world at present time. In what has become an annual tradition that attracts over 25 million worldwide, the “Red, White and Blue Tour” provides exciting entertainment for the whole family while showcasing their talent on a national stage.

As former General Manager of the Montreal Expos and Boston Red Sox, he brings an unlimited amount of experience, resources and qualifications that are second to none to an organization that is extraordinary in its setup. According to CEO Terry Allvord, “We are extremely fortunate to have someone with Dan's credentials and knowledge leading our entire player development system with a dedication to cultivating young talent while our teams excel at all levels. We are creating something totally new and unique, which requires a leader with the acumen, savvy and intelligence to build an entire organization based on developing talent to deliver winning baseball”.

Duquette’s baseball career began as an assistant in scouting department for the Milwaukee Brewers. He then became the Director of Player Development for the Montreal Expos in the late 1980’s which eventually led to a GM position with them. In 1995, he joined the Boston Red Sox, where he rebuilt the scouting and player development system into what you see today.

George M. Steinbrenner Field to Host "Florida Four" Collegiate Games PDF Print E-mail

The Florida Four

For the first time in collegiate baseball history, the elite of Florida collegiate baseball will be in the same place at the same time.

On March 2, 2010, George M. Steinbrenner Field will host the inaugural Florida Four.

University of South Florida (USF), will square-off against the 13th ranked Hurricanes of Miami (UM). The second match-up, is to say the least, a college fans dream with the 9th ranked Florida Gators (UF) confronting their in-state rival Florida St. Seminoles (FSU), who are, according to the Preseason USA TODAY/ESPN Top 25 Coaches' Poll, fifth in the nation.

Executive Director of the Tampa Bay Sports Commission Rob Higgins, expressed his thoughts about bringing this event to Tampa.

“We’ve been working with the Yankees for a few years now to bring another premier event to our community,” said Higgins. “We hope it serves as launching pad to Omaha for the four programs. This is a story that will start in March and we hope continues on to June. ”

College baseball at any rank or division level, does take a backseat to football and basketball; sports that do bring in enormous amounts of revenue for their respective schools. However, college baseball gives its viewers and fans something of an arcade feel. The “Ping” of aluminum, a sound that most purists would like to eliminate, does in fact bring an added level of excitement to the playing field.

A weak pop-up to third becomes a duck snort to left, and routine fly balls to right become historic game-ending homeruns, in the bottom of ninth, elevating the ordinary into a 1997 ESPY “Showstopper of the Year.

Opportunity is in fact knocking. These four participating schools, along with the city of Tampa can build an early season showcase into a tradition, reminiscent of The Great Alaska Shootout, held in Anchorage Alaska.

It’s going to be a great night for college baseball in Tampa. It should be a College World Series atmosphere with four great teams,” said USF Head Baseball Coach Lelo Prado. “I hope it's the beginning of a long tradition for college baseball here in the Tampa Bay Area.”

In any event, this will elevate the interest for each school involved, while continuing to expand the role of the New York Yankees and their contributions to the city of Tampa and the State of Florida.

The fans are in for a real treat, as the Road To Omaha just got a little more interesting.

Interview: Chuck Greenberg, Managing Partner and CEO of the Texas Rangers PDF Print E-mail

The Biz of Baseball - Interviews
Written by Maury Brown

Chuck GreenbergIf there’s a way to have a trial by fire in MLB before ever owning a club, surely Rangers Baseball Express, the group led by Chuck Greenberg and Nolan Ryan have walked miles over scorching road. For months the group labored to purchase the Texas Rangers through a voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy process after former owner Tom Hicks fell $525 million in debt through the Rangers’ holding company, Hicks Sports Group. Commissioner Selig said at one point that it was a “long and winding road” in the process, and that was well before creditors of HSG pushed for, and got, an open auction for the purchase of the club, something that had not occurred since the Orioles were auctioned off in 1993.

Through it all, Greenberg, the Pittsburgh sports attorney and minor league club owner worked with his group of investors through the exceptionally difficult process. At the same time, he has been exceptionally accessible with fans. To date, he is the only MLB owner on Facebook, accepts every “Friend” request, and answers all fan emails and text messages. On the day that Rangers Baseball Express won at auction over Mark Cuban and Jim Crane, he received over 2,000 emails and text messages congratulating the group, a clear sign that the majority of fans were happy to see RBE close in on obtaining the Rangers.

We caught up with Greenberg, who now has the title of Managing Partner and CEO of the Rangers, just two days after officially taking over the Rangers on Friday the 13th, just one day after MLB’s owners unanimously approved the ownership transfer, and all of 10 days after winning the club purchase through auction. To say that Greenberg has been in a state of perpetual motion may be the understatement of the year. Topics for the interview include his state of mind just before the ownership vote, what the scene was like just after walking in the conference room door after the vote, why the Rangers have rolled out a sweeping group of cost-cutting initiatives for fans, whether shading or a roof are realistic plans for the Ballpark in Arlington, the latest on attempts to get a new video display installed for next season, and more.
