Mike Candela

Vice President of Ticketing


Mike comes over to the Quad Cities after a decade long stint in the California League (2008-2016). He started with the Visalia Oaks/Rawhide where he worked his way up from Intern to Director of Ticketing & Groups. After five seasons in Visalia, Mike moved on to the Bakersfield Blaze where he became the Assistant GM and eventually the General Manager in Bakersfield's 2016 swan song season. Posthumously, he did win Cal League Executive of the Year and Organization of the year after a 2016 record season across the board.


Born and raised in Brooklyn & Staten Island, New York, Mike graduated from St. John's University with a degree in Sports Management. He currently lives in Davenport, Iowa with his wife Jordanne and two cats, Alley and Lady.


For favorite sports teams, to say he is a die-hard NY Mets fan, is an understatement. Just ask to see his right calf. When there is no baseball to found, you'll probably hear him cheering, "Let's Go Cowboys!"
