Orem Owlz general manager Zachary Fraser has announced that effective immediately he is resigning from his position. The reason given was “personal and family health issues.”
As the season has progressed, it has become more and more apparent that the time that I need to dedicate to these issues and to maintain the dedication and quality of work that I expect of myself and my employees is not possible. If I have learned anything in four years with Tom Kotchman it is that your health and happiness and that your family’s health and happiness are the two most important things. Baseball must take a back seat for the time being.
I recorded an interview on July with Zach. Click Here to listen.
No word on who will run the Owlz for the remainder of the season. Next in line would be assistant general manager Sarah Hansen, which might make her the only female GM currently in the affiliated minor leagues. Details when available.
