The Quad Cities River Bandits made a historical hire, naming Stefanie Brown as their new general manager. Brown becomes only the fourth female GM in the 65 year history of the Midwest League and at Age 28 becomes the youngest general manager in full season minor league baseball. Brown has worked for the River Bandits, the St Louis Cardinals Low-A affiliate, since 2007. In the story Brown talks about taking the franchise over, her love of Iowa, and looking forward to adding to the fan experience going forward.
