Mariners General Manager resigns after third season

PULASKI, VA – Pulaski Mariners General Manager Abby Lyman has resigned from her position after spending three years with the Appalachian League club.

“This has been the best professional experience I could have ever asked for. I have been fortunate to work with three wonderful owners that have given me the opportunity of a lifetime,” said Lyman.

Lyman is speaking of Pulaski Baseball Inc. owners Tom Compton, Rick Mansell and Wayne Carpenter. For the first time, they chose to bring Lyman on as a full-time employee, working all year round. Not only did Lyman work closely with Pulaski Baseball Inc, but also with the Seattle Mariners.

Originally hired as a media relations intern for the Mariners, Lyman completed her internship with the Mariners in 2010. After her internship, Lyman was promoted to Assistant General Manager for the 2011 season, and was then promoted to General Manager for the 2012 season.

Lyman is a native of Highland, Utah, and graduated from Brigham Young University in Public Relations. Lyman’s departure is an effort to live and work closer to her family. She wants to continue to work in the field of Minor League Baseball.

“I have met some of the most amazing people here in Pulaski. Working with local sponsors, businesses and fans of the Mariners has been such a fulfilling experience,” said Lyman. “I’ve grown to love southwest Virginia and the people I have met. It was a bittersweet decision to leave.”

    From what it sounds like….Pulaski is actually pushing people out instead of keeping them here. Good thing we have a multi million dollar school on the way for when the new talent gets here. EVEN BETTER, the metadone clinic that is moving forward is sure to give the town a bright future. Aughhhhh can you see the billboards off I-81 reading “Pulaski…..proud of our methadone clinic” and in the picture a dude shootin up lookin at the camera smilin. We in Pulaski should be proud of the progress!!!!
