Charlotte Knights Successful First Year
Posted By Shannon Emmanuel
Charlotte-South Rotary was fortunate to have Scotty Brown join us for our July 21 meeting. Scotty is the General Manager of Baseball Operations for the Knights and has enjoyed a record-setting year from this team. A veteran of 32 seasons in professional baseball, Scotty worked in the Baltimore Orioles public relations department from junior high school through college spanning 1979 to 1987. From there, he began his management career in 1988 with the New York Mets. Scotty joined the Knights in December 2012 after spending three years as General Manager for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. The Charlotte Knights celebrated their groundbreaking on September 20, 2102 and held a phenomenal opening night on April 11, 2014. The team prides itself with passing the half-million mark for attendance and having the number one attended sports arena in the Charlotte region. Scotty shared with us some interesting tidbits about the team, including the fact that the team uses 600-700 dozen baseballs each year! Hopefully you have (or will soon) had the opportunity to attend one of these fun baseball games in their beautiful new BB&T Ballpark uptown. Please visit www.charlotteknights.com to learn more.
