2012 SKIPPER, ERIC IVERSON REJOINS THE RACERS FOR THE 2013 CAMPAIGN

 

Akron, OH--President/GM, Joey Arrietta announced today the rehiring of last season’s, Head Field Manager, Eric Iverson, to lead the Racers in 2013. “I am very pleased to be rejoining the Akron Racers for the 2013 season,” remarked Iverson. “I am excited to pursue the NPF Championship with a group of players with such high character and passion for the game. From the front office to the locker room, the Racers have developed a family atmosphere that I felt I wanted to be a part of again.”
 
The Racers finished with a 14-30 injury riddled record one year ago. “I am confident that Coach Iverson, given a healthy pitching staff, can lead the 2013 team to a very successful summer,” commented Arrietta. “He and I connected on all levels. Our continued partnership in leading our team on and off the field will deliver big dividends to the Akron fans.”
