Lisa Riggs, President of the Lancaster Barnstormers, is stepping down at the end of this month.
“Lisa was a wonderful asset to our organization during her 18 months here,” noted Opening Day Partners President and Lancaster Barnstormers CEO Jon Danos. “We support and respect her choice to leave, knowing she will continue to have a positive impact on the Lancaster community and therefore on the Lancaster Barnstormers.”
As President for the ball team, Riggs oversaw all the employees and identified non-baseball related activities and events for the stadium. She joined the Barnstormers in May 2012, after serving as President of the James Street Improvement District (JSID) for nine years.
“The Lancaster Barnstormers have an incredible track record of nine seasons of top quality baseball and family entertainment,” added Danos.
Riggs leaves to pursue other career interests but has agreed to continue in a consultative role for the next few months. She had been the first female to serve in the position of President.
There are no plans to fill Riggs’ role at this time. Danos stated that the long-serving senior management team, led by General Manager Kristen Simon, Anthony DeMarco, Fan Experience, and Vince Bulik, Business Development, will continue their off-season work focused on the exciting milestone 10th season that kicks off on Thursday, 1 May in the season opener against the York Revolution.
The Lancaster Barnstormers are entering their tenth season as a member of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball. Home games are played at Clipper Magazine Stadium
