Mariners will be back next year

“It’s hard to keep a secret,” said Tom Compton, president of Pulaski Baseball, Inc.
That’s why he announced that the Pulaski Mariners are here to stay, at least for the 2009 and 2010 seasons, during a press conference held this morning at Calfee Park in Pulaski.
Compton said the good news about this new two-year agreement came yesterday, but Pulaski Baseball Inc. didn’t want to keep it a secret from their “loyal fans,” who have done so much to “keep baseball in Pulaski.”
“It’s a great day for us,” said Lee Landers, president of the Appalachian League, adding having the Mariners play in Pulaski was something that “really went right” this year.
Landers also expressed his appreciation for Pulaski Baseball, Inc. and the people of the local community for their support.
“When you say Pulaski baseball these days, everyone knows what you’re talking about,” he said.
“After not having baseball here for a whole season, it was obvious this season that the Town of Pulaski was starved for baseball,” said Pulaski Mayor Jeff Worrell, who was also present at the press conference.
Worrell said that with the success of this season, plus the new two-year commitment from the Mariners, he believes the team can build on its success for an even more exciting future.
Also in attendance at the press conference were Norma Edmonds, Wayne Carpenter and Rick Mansell, all of Pulaski Baseball, Inc., along with Marty Gordon, director of marketing and baseball operations for the Pulaski Mariners.
During the 2008 season, the Pulaski Mariners won the Eastern Division of the Appalachian League but fell to Elizabethton in the Appalachian League championship series.
The Mariners finished the 2008 season with a 40-27 record.
