Jacqueline Holm joined the Pit Spitters as the Team’s General Manager, in October 2022. The 2023 season will be her first as the team’s GM, but not her first in baseball. Jacqueline is no stranger to the industry of minor league baseball, most recently serving as the GM for the Quad City River Bandits, of the High-A Midwest League, during their 2019 season. Following 2019, Holm has held leadership roles with the Scott County Family YMCA in Davenport, Iowa, and most recently has led national event and tradeshow activities for a cutting-edge agriculture company based in Illinois. Holm’s impressive track record in baseball began with the Sugar Land Skeeters, an independent Atlantic League team, where she helped the Skeeters gain notoriety through a variety of high-profile promotions and landmark events. At the conclusion of the 2015 season, she moved to Davenport to join the River Bandits. There she held several leadership positions, finishing as the team’s GM for the 2019 season. While with the River Bandits, Holm’s leadership saw the team transform their social media presence, substantially grow season ticket usage and retention, and win a Midwest League Championship — all of which garnered her a nomination for the Rawlings Midwest League Female Executive of the Year award in 2017. Outside of the ballpark, Holm also helped extend the team’s reach into the community through her board work with several nonprofits and community organizations, including serving as president of the Davenport Rotary.
Jacqueline is a native of Sugar Land, Texas and don’t hold it against her, but also a Houston Astros fan! In her spare time, she performs in a 90’s alternative band, loves riding her bike and recently discovered a passion for restoring vintage furniture. She has visited 42 of the 50 states and plans on seeing the other 16 MLB parks she hasn’t yet visited. She looks forward to getting to know Traverse City, and calling it home!
