"To say my time with the Stockton Ports has been amazing is a major understatement. I'd personally like to thank the Volpe Family for their efforts in running a great ownership group with 7th Inning Stretch LLC. and Ports' President Pat Filippone for providing me with a once in a lifetime opportunity." said Taylor McCarthy, "I'd also like thank our fans, partners, and the Stockton community for adopting me as one of their own since 2013. The future of the Ports organization is extremely bright and I know that 2020 will be their best year yet."
McCarthy started his career with the Ports as the Director of Marketing in 2013 and worked his way up to General Manager during his 7 seasons with the Ports. He was named General Manager in 2018 and oversaw all operations of the team including Corporate Sales, Ticket Sales, Marketing and Community Relations.
