Slammers announce Morris' Franklin as new GM
JOLIET — A mixture of old and new Slammers got together to meet the media on Tuesday in the Hall of Fame room at Silver Cross Field. The event was to introduce the new ownership and general manager to the Frontier League Franchise in Joliet.
"We're excited moving forward in having baseball in Joliet," Frontier League Commissioner Bill Lee said. "We'd like to welcome the new ownership group."
While many may not readily recognize the new ownership group — Joliet Community Baseball & Entertainment - and CEO Josh Schaub; at least locally, some will recognize the team's new general manager. It's former Redskin Chris Franklin — a 1999 graduate of MCHS.
