The Johnstown Mill Rats are pleased to announce that Greg Kocinski has been named the team’s new general manager.
A resident of Greensburg, Kocinski was a 5-year member and 2-time captain (2016-2018) for the Marist College D1 baseball team. He has a degree in Business Administration from Marist College with an emphasis in Finance and spent three years working with JP Morgan Chase and Bank of New York Mellon before deciding to follow his baseball passion.
This past summer Kocinski served as the Mill Rats hitting coach. The Mill Rats finished third in the Prospect League hitting with a .285 team batting average.
“We are very pleased to have Greg leading our business operations,” said Mill Rats Co-Owner Bill Davidson. “The combination of his business, finance, and baseball background is a great skill set with which to lead our organization into our second season.”
“It truly is an honor to have this opportunity with the Mill Rats,” said Kocinski. “Johnstown has such a rich baseball history and I look forward to adding a new chapter to that legacy at Sargent’s Stadium at the Point. As we move into our second season, I know those involved with the team last year saw what great potential our organization has. I am really excited to grow our team into an engaging part of the community and have the stadium rocking all summer long. Opening night in late May can’t come soon enough!”
Joining Kocinski will be Johnstown native, Lisa Downey, as the Director of Partnerships. In her role, Downey will help to secure sponsorships and develop creative ways to further involve the community on and off the field. “We can’t wait to get the community behind us and get things rolling with the Rats,” said Downey. “Sargent’s Stadium at the Point will be a great place for families to create memories and enjoy an evening together.”
Our first community event is a jingle contest to be held October 20th at Stadium Pub & Grille, directly across from the stadium. Come join us to see what all the hype is about and stay tuned for more information. Come on Johnstown, let’s do this!
