Fisher Cats nominated for President’s Award

The New Hampshire Fisher Cats, the Double-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays, have been nominated for the 2013 John H. Johnson President’s Award, which is presented annually by Minor League Baseball to recognize the franchise’s long-term success while positively impacting the local community and the game of baseball.

One team from each league in affiliated baseball is nominated for the award based on franchise stability, contributions to league stability, impact on the community, and promotion of the baseball industry.

“Under the direction of Art Solomon and Rick Brenner, the New Hampshire Fisher Cats have established themselves as one of the model franchises in all of Minor League Baseball,” said Eastern League president Joe McEacharn. “Thanks to the hard work of the entire staff in New Hampshire, the Fisher Cats are able to provide their fans with affordable, family entertainment on a nightly basis at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, while also establishing a strong commitment to their community, helping to raise money and awareness for hundreds of charities.”
