Vince Bulik began his tenure as general manager of the Wilmington Blue Rocks in January 2021. Prior to joining the Blue Rocks, Bulik was the Vice President of Ticket Sales and Services for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, triple A affiliate of the New York Yankees, where he oversaw the sales and marketing efforts of season tickets, groups and premium tickets.
Born in Youngstown, Ohio, Bulik moved with his family to central Pennsylvania and grew up near Harrisburg. He graduated from Lebanon Valley College where he played both football and baseball. Bulik began his career in sports as an intern in the front office of the Harrisburg Senators.
He has helped start up four minor league baseball clubs and built successful sales, marketing, ticketing and operations staffs. He’s been named a salesman of the year and notched consistent million dollar-plus seasons.
In 2001, Bulik joined the team that brought baseball home to Brooklyn for the first time since the Dodgers left in 1957. He spent three years as director of sales and marketing there, overseeing a department that topped $2 million in advertising sales every season.
After moving back to central Pennsylvania, he joined former Baltimore Orioles’ Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson and Opening Day Partners to expand the Atlantic League. He played leadership roles in opening three minor franchises for ODP— the Lancaster Barnstormers, York Revolution and Southern Maryland Blue Crabs — and was named salesman of the year in 2008.
Bulik spent three years as the general manager of the Lancaster Barnstormers. Under his leadership, the team ranked among league leaders in attendance, averaging more than 4,500 fans per game. He was subsequently promoted to oversee all team revenue and boosted sponsorship, advertising and ticket sales by 28% over five years.
After departing Lancaster, Bulik spent two seasons with Cal Ripken Jr.’s Aberdeen Ironbirds, the Baltimore Orioles Single-A affiliate, where he lead sales and business development. He also spent a season with Ron Jaworski’s Trifecta Sports and Entertainment in the Arena Football League as VP of business development for the Albany Empire, Philadelphia Soul and Atlantic City Blackjacks.
