Eau Claire, Wis. – The Eau Claire Express baseball team today announced an addition to their front office staff, naming Zach Czubakowski as Assistant Director of Operations. He has been with the organization for five years in various roles, but this is his first full-time assignment. The front office of the Express now stands at six.
Czubakowski began with the Express as a part-time employee in 2011, serving as the “utility guy” mainly in concessions at Carson Park. He was in that role for three years before becoming a Stadium Operations intern in 2014. The Thorp, Wis. native assisted in oversight of the food and beverage operation on the Fan Deck that year. In 2015, he expanded his role to include group ticket sales and supervision of the Stadium Operations interns as Ticket Sales & Operations Intern. His new role will consist of hiring and management of all part-time staff members, direction of all walk-in and call-in ticket sales at the Express office while participating in 5-Game Pack and group ticket sales among other things.
“Zach has a unique story with the Express and is a great example of the development opportunities available in the Northwoods League off the field,” Express General Manager Andy Neborak said. “He has always worked extremely hard and has been willing to learn and is someone that will be a great asset as we grow our organization.”
The Express begin their twelfth season of play in the Northwoods League at Carson Park on May 31 versus the Rochester Honkers. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m. in that contest, with gates opening at 5:30 p.m. Season tickets and 5-Game Packs are on sale now and single-game tickets go on sale on May 2. All tickets can be purchased by calling the Express office at 715-839-7788 or by stopping at the downtown office at 102 E. Grand Ave.
