The Hoptown Hoppers summer collegiate baseball team has announced local businessman Danny Roberts as the team’s new General Manager. Roberts, who is Vice-President of Operations at BryMak & Associates, is a longtime Hoppers fan and staunch community supporter. Roberts is the fourth GM in Hoppers franchise history.
“Hoppers Baseball is a vital part of Hopkinsville’s community. The program strives to bring family, friends, and the community as a whole together. I am extremely thankful to be given the opportunity to continue working on improving the program and I aim to keep the Hoppers tradition going,” Roberts said.
Hoppers Board Chairman, Charlie Henderson, said the interview committee was impressed by Roberts’ management skills and his enthusiasm for the future during the interview process.
“The Hoptown Hoppers organization is excited to welcome Mr. Danny Roberts as our next GM. He is a highly motivated individual with excellent organizational and time management skills,” Henderson said. “Along with entire board, I’m looking forward to working alongside Danny as he leads our baseball operations this upcoming season.”
The Hoppers finished the 2022 season with 22-16 mark as runners-up in the Ohio Valley League’s South Division, a record good enough for third best in the league. Hoptown was knocked out of the playoffs in the second round by the Full Count Rhythm, eventual OVL champs.
