“We considered a number of very appropriate names, but felt Stealth really fit the Sacramento area,” said Leon Lee, who leads the team’s ownership group. “We have a lot going on as we move towards opening day and we couldn’t be more excited for our fans.”
Meanwhile, the team named ex-major leaguer Larry Wolfe the club’s first manager. Wolfe played for the Minnesota Twins in 1977 and 1978, before moving on to play for the Boston Red Sox in 1979 and 1980. He played the 1982 season in Japan with the Kintetsu Buffaloes before retiring.
“This is an exciting time for baseball in Sacramento,” said Wolfe. “I’m honored to be able to work with talented players aspiring to play in the Major Leagues, and its fun to be part of bringing exciting baseball and affordable family entertainment in an intimate setting to town.”
Wolfe was drafted by the Twins in the 9th Round of the 1973 Amateur Draft out of Sacramento City College. The 62-year-old hit seven home runs in the big leagues, twice hitting two home runs in a single game.
Wolfe coached baseball for ten years at Bella Vista High School in Fair Oaks, California.
