Waterloo, IA – Pete Lauritson, field manager of the Waterloo Bucks, has resigned from his position. Lauritson had served as Waterloo’s skipper for the following two seasons.
“Managing the Bucks was the biggest thrill I have had in my lifetime and I will never forget it,” said Lauritson.
Waterloo compiled a 57-77 record in Lauritson’s two seasons as manager. Under Lauritson, the Bucks produced four mid-season Northwoods League All-Stars and two post-season All-Stars. Lauritson was the seventh manager in Bucks’ history. The Mason City, Iowa native also served as the team’s bench coach during the 2007 season.
“Speaking for the entire organization, I thank Pete for all of his hard work for the team over the past three seasons,” said Waterloo General Manager Dan Corbin. “Pete is one of the most competitive persons I know and I sincerely wish him the best of luck.”
The Bucks will begin a national search for a new field manager immediately.
