They were a lame duck team that drew the fewest fans in the league, but Baybears General Manager Chris Morgan has been named the Southern League Executive of the Year.
“I am incredibly flattered and appreciative that my peers throughout the league selected me for this award,” Morgan told the BayBears website. “This award is an acknowledgement of the effort put forth by our front office staff throughout this past season, despite working under unique circumstances.”
Morgan was been with the BayBears since 2014. Before that, he was an executive with the Senior Bowl in Mobile.
The BayBears will play a 23rd and final season in Mobile next year and then move to Madison, Alabama where they will be known as the Rocket City Trash Pandas.
