Thoughts and pictures of my local minor league baseball team the New York Penn League Connecticut Tigers; a Detriot farm team. We'll still be looking at former Navigators/Defenders players along the way....

Good luck Andrew!

From the New London Day:

"Norwich – The Connecticut Tigers announced today that General Manager Andrew Weber will step down at the end of this month, and Vice President of Operations C.J. Knudsen will replace Weber as vice president and general manager.

Weber has been with the team for four years, and led the effort to move to Norwich at the start of the 2010 baseball season. The late move that spring hurt the ability to sell tickets and sponsorships, but this summer, the Tigers ranked fourth in the nation in all levels of minor league baseball in improved attendance.

Weber called it a "tough and bittersweet decision," but felt it was time to move on and seek a new position in baseball.

"I do want to stay in baseball," Weber said. "We'll see what opportunities come my way. It has been an absolute pleasure here. The last two years have been great here. I know that with our staff, it's going to be awesome and will continue to grow."

Knudsen joined the Tigers with the team's move to Norwich after having spent 10 years as general manager of the Vermont Lake Monsters in the New York-Penn League. He has worked for 17 years in the league in which the Tigers play.

Eric Knighton has been promoted to vice president and assistant general manager."
