March 4, 2010 - Golden Baseball League (GBL) - Victoria Seals
Victoria, BC - The Victoria Seals announce that they have formally relieved field manager Darrell Evans of his duties for the 2010 Golden Baseball League season.
Evidence has come to light to suggest Evans chose to solicit employment as a field manager with another team, while still receiving a salary from the Seals for the 2010 season. As a result, the Golden Baseball League has placed Evans on the Suspended List, pending resolution of financial and contractual issues with the Victoria Seals.
"The combination of Mr. Evans' desire to seek other employment in the GBL and the organization's subsequent loss in confidence left us with no other option but to relieve him of his duties in all capacities with the club," said Seals President Darren Parker.
As the first manager in team history, Evans compiled a record of 32-50 (.390 winning percentage) and led the Seals to fourth place in the North Division.
The club has already begun an extensive search for a new coaching staff as we approach the team's second season. An announcement regarding the hiring of both a new field manager and coaches is expected next week.
The 2010 Victoria Seals season kicks off May 21 when the brand new Na Ikaika Koa Maui arrive at Royal Athletic Park. Season tickets for the 2010 campaign are on sale, available through the Victoria Seals office. Call (250) 480-4487 for more information, or to book your seat today!
