FREEDOM HIRE WITHIN; WHITE PROMOTED TO FIELD MANAGER

FLORENCE, KY – The Florence Freedom are proud to announce Pitching and Catching Coach Brian White has been promoted to Field Manager for the Florence Freedom.

White has coached our pitchers and catchers for five seasons and contributed to four winning seasons under previous Field Manager Dennis Pelfrey.

“He’s been with me since I started in Florence and is more than ready to take over the Florence team.” said Pelfrey “We’ve been the best team in the league over the last three seasons and he will continue the winning tradition.”

In his five seasons, White’s pitching expertise has led to ten pitchers being signed by MLB clubs.

White is looking forward to moving up within the organization and continuing what Pelfrey has built in Florence.

“The goal is to always win a championship every year.” said White “However, we’ll take things one day at a time and work to get better each day.”

The Florence Freedom open the season and play their first regular season game with White as field manager on May 14, against the New Jersey Jackals.
