Brad Shank joined the TinCaps in August 2003 after spending his first year out of college doing everything from peddling replacement windows to mixing paint (very exciting). Brad first experienced the exciting world of Minor League Baseball through an internship with the Richmond Roosters in the summer of 2001.
After starting his tenure with the TinCaps as a Group Sales Representative, Brad now holds the position of Vice President - Ticket Sales and along with selling responsibilities he oversees all aspects of ticket sales for the TinCaps. On game days Brad takes a large part in putting on the on-field promotions, whether it is breaking it down with the Bad Apple Dancers or testing a fan's ability to count thousands of people in a matter of seconds. The in-game promotions are by far Brad's favorite part of his job!
Born and raised in Richmond, Indiana, Brad graduated from Richmond High School in 1998, and went on to Taylor University (Upland Campus) where he graduated in 2002 with a degree in Business Administration and a number of intramural championships. Brad was married to his beautiful wife Kelly in February of 2012 and is thoroughly enjoying married life! Among the things that Brad is most thankful for are his family, including his beautiful wife Kelly, Dad, Mom, and two sisters Lara and Mandy, and brother-in-law Scott. He also thoroughly enjoys his two nephews, Will and Noah, and the newest addition to the family his little niece Hannah!
Growing up loving sports, Brad was taught the right way by his father at an early age and became an avid supporter of Ohio State Buckeye football and Indiana Hoosiers basketball. Brad hopes to root on the Buckeyes to another National Championship! O-H ... I-O!
