Official Front Office Blog of the Connecticut Tigers, Class A Affiliate of the Detroit Tigers
Welcome to the Connecticut Tigers Front Office!
We’ve been talking about starting a blog for some time now, so here it is! Be sure to check back often as we’ll be updating it to give our fans a chance to see what we do during the offseason (no, we don’t all winter in Florida!) and what it’s like during a NY-Penn League season.
Here’s a little introduction to the front office staff and where we work. Once the weather takes a turn for the better our office becomes the entire stadium, especially when we have home games.
Leading Off (in no particular order): VP of Operations, CJ Knudsen
Batting Second: Assistant General Manager, Eric Knighton
Batting Third: Director of Turf Management and Stadium Operations, Bryan Barkley
Batting Cleanup: Director of Community Relations and Promotions, Dave Schermerhorn
Batting Fifth: Director of Concessions and Merchandise, Heather Bartlett
Batting Sixth: Director of Business Development and Client Relations, Matt Deltenre
And Hitting Seventh: General Manager, Andrew Weber
We have also been joined this offseason by Shane McKenzie (he’s also our on-field MC during the season) on a part-time basis to help with sales. We’re looking forward to a great 2011 season and hope to see you all at Dodd Stadium!
