The Lake Erie Crushers, who are presented by Akron Children’s Hospital, announced today that Cam Roth will be returning to the organization as
Manager for the 2022 Baseball season.

“We are thrilled to welcome back Cam Roth to Mercy Health Stadium”, stated Crushers Co-Owner Tom Kramig. “Cam had a lot of success here in Lake Erie, and we believe he can help us capture a Frontier League Championship in the very near future.”

“I am very excited to be returning to Lake Erie next season”, Roth said. “We had a lot of success there but didn’t achieve our goal of a Frontier League title, so the job is far from finished.”

Roth managed the Crushers from June of 2016 through the end of the 2019 season, when the Crushers won the Frontier League Eastern Division title and Roth was named Manager of the Year. He was hired by the Detroit Tigers organization but was released when COVID and minor
league contraction led to the shutdown of the 2020 season and elimination of the Tigers minor league affiliate in Connecticut.

Roth Managed the Gateway Grizzlies in 2021, compiling a record of the 38 and 57. Roth will serve as the Director of Baseball Operations & Field Manager. His coaching staff will be announced at a later date.
