The Pirates announced that Team President, Frank Coonelly, is leaving the team.
“Frank and I both agreed that it was clear a change in the day-to-day leadership of the club is needed. This leadership transition gives us the opportunity to refresh our entire operations. Internally, the organization is energized as we prepare to introduce our new president on Monday, while we continue to work to identify a new field manager and build our coaching staff.” - Bob Nutting
The Pirates say a replacement has been selected and will be introduced on October 28th.
