PRESS RELEASE – The Seacoast Mavericks of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL) announced Monday that former Major League Baseball All-Star Bob Stanley will serve in the capacity of team President. Stanley, who was inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame in 2000, was the Sox all time saves leader until Jonathan Paplebon passed him in 2009.
Stanley will help to oversee the Maverick’s organization and is excited to aid in their development. “I’m very excited to lend my support in favor of helping many overlooked college players in the Northeast,” said Stanley who will also serve on the FCBL Board of Directors.
Director of Baseball Operations Mike Daboul said Stanley will help the Mavericks in a number of ways. “Obviously Bob brings a ton of experience with him as a player, a minor league pitching coach, and someone who has a great understanding of how to run an organization. His help has been and will be immeasurable.”
