RedWolves Celebrate 10th Season Under Current Owners, Logo Unveiled

PRESS RELEASE – In 2007, the RedWolves became the first sports team to play for 10 seasons in Florence and insured it’s stability as a great family activity for the Pee Dee area.

Over the year’s hockey, arena football, D-League basketball and even minor league baseball, failed to stay in town to reach this milestone. Now the RedWolves have made another major stride as the Barth family will be entering their 10th season as owners of the team. The Barth’s were recently recognized by Florence County Council for their commitment to the community in providing cost affordable family entertainment for the residents and for doing it for 10 years.

In celebration of this 10th anniversary the RedWolves commission local design artist, Ashley Greene, to design a logo to be used in promotion of the 2011 season.

“Ashley did a great job incorporating our mascot Homer and giving him a new look and tying that all in with other baseball visuals to create the logo,” said RedWolves general manager Jamie Young. “We will be using this logo on all of our print and other visual media this spring and summer and hope that this will further promote the RedWolves to our fans and make them aware of what the Barth’s have done with the team over the years.”

The RedWolves are a member of the Coastal Plain League, the nation’s hottest summer collegiate baseball league. Heading into its 15th season, the Coastal Plain League features 15 teams playing in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. The CPL gives college players the chance to refine their skills with the use of wooden bats. Players are housed with local host families for the summer and past experiences have been very positive for both players and hosts. Furthermore, the CPL has had over 800 alumni drafted and 39 alums make their Major League debut thus far.
