Lancaster — The Lancaster JetHawks have named former Lancaster City Manager Mark Bozigian a Special Advisor for the Minor League ball club.
For the past 11 years as City Manager, Bozigian worked with the City Council and staff on many projects and initiatives that improved the city of Lancaster.
Having recently stepped away from the city’s top staff leadership position, the Antelope Valley native will remain involved in the community, including his new role with the JetHawks.
“We could not be more excited to have Mark joining our team,” JetHawks President Andy Dunn said in a statement. “There are few people who better represent all the great things of the Antelope Valley than Mark Bozigian and we are truly fortunate that he has decided to join our organization.”
In his new role with the JetHawks, Bozigian will assist the ownership group and front office staff in many facets including growing its presence within the community as well as assisting with the overall direction of the franchise; as the team embarks on its 24th season in Lancaster.
“This is a dream come true,” Bozigian said. “I’ve seen first-hand the positive impact the JetHawks have had on our community over the last 20-plus years and I truly believe the best is yet to come for the JetHawks organization. As a die-hard baseball fan, I can’t wait to embark on this next journey of my professional career.”
The Lancaster JetHawks start their 2019 campaign at home on Thursday, April 4 against the Modesto Nuts. Group tickets and ticket packages are available now at JetHawks.com or by stopping by the JetHawks offices located at 45116 Valley Central Way in Lancaster.
