FRISCO, Texas (Oct. 22, 2018) - Frisco RoughRiders Executive Vice President Jason Dambach has departed the organization to pursue opportunities outside of Minor League Baseball.
"I'd like to thank Chuck Greenberg for 16 wonderful years together in professional baseball in Altoona, State College and Frisco, and especially for providing me the opportunity back in 2015 to join the RoughRiders and be part of such a talented and innovative management team in one of the most vibrant and forward-thinking communities in the country," Dambach said.
For nearly two decades, Dambach has been a key contributor to franchises across the Greenberg Sports Group, including four great years with the RoughRiders. He took over as the team's Executive Vice President & General Manager prior to the 2015 season. During his tenure in Frisco, he oversaw the organization's new branding, numerous major ballpark renovations - including the installation of the world-famous Choctaw Lazy River - and some of the most successful theme nights in the organization's history.
"Regardless of the role he held or the team he worked with, Jason was integral in taking our franchises to new heights, and that was especially true in Frisco," said General Partner & CEO Chuck Greenberg. "I am immensely grateful for his contributions and wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors."
The RoughRiders executive leadership team continues to be led by President and General Manager Andy Milovich, who assumed his new role with the team in July 2018. Under Milovich's leadership, the RoughRiders have embarked on new strategies for ticketing, food and beverage service and fan engagement to ensure the RoughRiders are fully prepared for the explosive growth in North Texas. The team will continue to build on its reputation for great service, creative promotions and the most affordable family fun in the region.
The 2019 season begins April 4 at Dr Pepper Ballpark. Ticket memberships and group hospitality packages are now on sale. The promotional calendar will be unveiled in early 2019 with single-game tickets going on sale soon after. For more information, visit RidersBaseball.com or call (972) 731-9200.
About the RoughRiders
The Frisco RoughRiders are the Double-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers and play their games at beautiful Dr Pepper Ballpark in Frisco, Texas. The team was founded in 2003 and has finished first among all Double-A franchises in attendance in each of the last 14 seasons (2005-2018). In August 2014, the RoughRiders were purchased by an ownership group led by Chuck Greenberg. Since then, the new ownership group, together with the City of Frisco, has spearheaded numerous major franchise enhancements, investing over $8 million in a wide array of facility upgrades and improvements, including a state-of-the-art HD video board, sound system, Bull Moose Saloon, InTouch Grille, Riders Outpost Team Store and the world's largest water feature in a sports facility, the massive Choctaw Lazy River. These enhancements earned the Riders and the City of Frisco Ballpark Digest's prestigious "Best Ballpark Renovation" award for two consecutive years (2015 and 2016). More than 140 former RoughRiders players have gone on to play Major League Baseball, including All-Stars Chris Davis, Adrian Gonzalez, Ian Kinsler and Neftali Feliz, as well as current Rangers stars Elvis Andrus, Rougned Odor and Nomar Mazara.
