La Crosse, Wis. – The La Crosse Loggers Baseball Club are proud to formally introduce Chris Callaway as its Sales Coordinator and Director of Entertainment as of October 2, 2017.
Callaway has been with the La Crosse Loggers as the public address announcer since the 2013 season, but has come on board in a newly-created position. He will help to drive individual, season and group ticket sales, work to develop corporate partnerships, as well as plan and implement in-game entertainment at Copeland Park. He will continue his work behind the microphone as well, serving as the in-game host on gamedays at the Lumberyard.
A 2010 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, Callaway has lived and worked in the Coulee Region since graduation, spending six years working in radio at the La Crosse Media Group. He has announced more than 150 Loggers games in his tenure as public address announcer, and is happy to expand his role with the team.
“It was simply too good of an opportunity to pass up,” said Callaway. “I’ve been fortunate enough to work closely with the La Crosse Loggers over the past five seasons, so I know first-hand what kind of organization the people represent and I’m excited to increase my role and responsibilities with the team.”
Loggers general manager Chris Goodell is also excited to welcome Callaway in a full-time role. “Chris has been such an integral part of our Loggers brand and presentation at Copeland Park for the past five seasons so it is with great excitement that we welcome him on board to our front office staff and have the tremendous opportunity to utilize his vast array of talents on a year-round basis. He’s a first-class guy that believes in our community-first mission and we’re looking forward to working with him on a daily basis to continue to make Loggers Baseball bigger and better.”
