October 1, 2007 - Atlantic League (AtL) - Bridgeport Bluefish
The Bridgeport Bluefish announced today that Todd Marlin has been hired as the new General Manager. Marlin began his baseball career in 1998 as an intern with the Nashua Pride in the Atlantic League's inaugural year. In 2003, he was named General Manager of the Pride and in 2005 Marlin was named Atlantic League Executive of the Year.
Joe Klein, Executive Director of the Atlantic League said, "Todd brings a lot of Atlantic League experience to Bridgeport, his success in Nashua and knowledge of what it takes to be a winner in the Atlantic League will help Mary- Jane Foster and her group reach their goal of the next Bridgeport Championship. We all wish them well."
Marlin was with the Nashua Pride during their Atlantic League championship season in 2000, during which Nashua beat out the Bridgeport Bluefish in the division series. In his first year as General Manager he led the Pride to the 2003 Atlantic League championship series before losing to the Somerset Patriots. Marlin left the Pride at the end of 2005 to become the General Manager of the Worcester Tornadoes, a team in the Can-Am League.
"We're looking forward to Todd joining us," said Mary-Jane Foster, CEO of the Bluefish. "He has a proven track record in all areas of the minor league baseball business and he is well known in the Atlantic League as an effective manager. I think we have found the right person to lead the Bluefish both to profitability and a winning record."
