October 31, 2017 - Southern League (SL) - Jackson Generals
JACKSON, TN, OCTOBER 31, 2017 - The Jackson Generals have announced a new management structure heading into the 2018 season. Long-time General Manager, Jason Compton, has been promoted to Team President and Assistant General Manager, Nick Hall will take over the duties of General Manager. These changes ensure that the Generals will continue to provide the most affordable family entertainment in West Tennessee for the foreseeable future.
Hall, who is entering his ninth season with the franchise and just completed his second as Assistant GM, is the team's fifth General Manager and will be leading the day to day operations of the franchise as they enter their 21st season in Jackson. The St. Louis, MO native has worked his way from intern to GM in a relatively short amount of time, but Nick is more than ready for the responsibilities of the position. His most important task is to ensure that every person that walks through the gates of the The Ballpark at Jackson has fun and can't wait to come back.
Compton, who will enter his 19th season with the team in 2018, will still be heavily involved with the operation of the franchise as Team President, but it will be more on a corporate level with ownership as he also assists with other endeavors of the ownership group. The Huntingdon, TN native and former West Tenn Diamond Jaxx intern, has been an intrical part of baseball in Jackson for almost two decades and his passion and dedication will continue to shape the landscape of what Minor League Baseball in West Tennessee looks like.
