The Southern Maryland Blue Crabs have announced the appointment of Patrick Day as new general manager of the franchise.
Day will focus on providing strategic direction and assisting the Blue Crabs in maintaining their status as a community leader, as well as on the day-to-day operations, a news release from the baseball club states.
Joel Seiden, who performed as general manager during the past season, will transition into a business development leadership role with the team, which is entering its sixth season this year.
Day has spent the last six seasons as general manager of the Lansing Lugnuts baseball team, member of the Midwest League and current Class “A” affiliate of Major League Baseball’s Toronto Blue Jays.
Day, 37, began his career with the Charleston Alley Cats of the Class “A” South Atlantic League, overseeing sales and marketing as the assistant general manager.
He then moved into a similar role with the Montgomery Biscuits of the Southern League, a franchise that twice claimed Baseball America’s Class “AA” franchise-of-the-year award while he was there. Day’s most recent stint as a sports executive was with the Muskegon Lumberjacks, part of the United States Hockey League, as chief operating officer.
