The Frontier League has announced that Deputy Commissioner and General Counsel Kevin Rouch will be stepping down from his position with the League to return full-time to his law practice. Rouch has served in his current capacity since 2001, after serving as outside counsel and working with two League teams, the Zanesville Greys and Chillicothe Paints, as their radio play-by-play announcer.
“I will certainly miss my day-to-day involvement with the League,” Rouch said. “It has made great strides since its founding in 1993 and has become, in my opinion, the pre-eminent independent league in the country. In particular, I’d like to thank Commissioner Bill Lee and President Rich Sauget for allowing me to serve in my post during these exciting times. I am lucky to have made so many friends around the League over the years and I look forward to being a fan and supporter in future seasons.”
Frontier League Commissioner, Bill Lee added, “I will miss Kevin tremendously. I cannot say enough about his contributions to the League in his nine years. Not only has he been a great Deputy Commissioner, he has become a great friend. He will forever be a major part of the success of the League and will always be a part of the Frontier League family. I want to thank him for everything and wish him the greatest success in the future.”
During his tenure, Rouch served the League in many capacities. He served as General Counsel, webmaster, team liaison, operations director and publicist.
