TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR SCOTT BROWN, GENERAL MANAGER OF THE MYRTLE BEACH PELICAN BASEBALL TEAM, AND TO CONGRATULATE HIM FOR HIS SELECTION AS THE 2012 CALVIN FALLWELL EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR BY THE CAROLINA LEAGUE.
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina were pleased to learn that Scott Brown was named the 2012 Calvin Fallwell Executive of the Year by the Carolina League on Monday, September 24, 2012, for his work as general manager of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans; and
Whereas, over the sixty-seven game dates last season, an average of 3,288 spectators supported the Pelicans, an affiliate of the Texas Rangers, cheering them to the team's second consecutive playoff appearance, with a season total of 220,273 spectators; and
Whereas, the Pelicans ranked fifth out of thirty Class A advanced minor league teams in attendance average and sold out eleven times in a season, five of which reached admission capacity of 6,599, the most in any single season of franchise history; and
Whereas, the award recognizes the effort that Scott Brown has made to treat players, fans, and even visiting teams with special consideration; and
Whereas, the team worked with the City of Myrtle Beach and Horry County to oversee a complete field-reconstruction project, including updated draining, irrigation, subsurface, and the installation of a new turf surface that decreased the number of rainouts; and
Whereas, other stadium improvements included upgrades in the concessions operation and replacement of the original 21st Avenue North marquee sign with a full-color, animated Daktronics message center, all of which resulted in the team's accolade for the 2012 Carolina League Field of the Year Award; and
Whereas, before joining the Pelicans in 2010, Scott Brown served as the general manager for the Binghamton Mets in New York for five years, where he earned the Eastern League's version of the same award in 2005; and
Whereas, only forty-seven years old, he has worked thirty-one baseball seasons since high school at major- and minor-league levels, including the Baltimore Orioles, the St. Lucie Mets, the New York Mets, and the Binghamton Mets; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly are grateful for the pride and recognition that Scott Brown has brought to his community and to the Palmetto State through his accomplishments with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans and look to hear of his continued success. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly by this resolution, recognize and honor Scott Brown, general manager of the Myrtle Beach Pelican baseball team, and congratulate him for his selection as the 2012 Calvin Fallwell Executive of the Year by the Carolina League.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to Scott Brown.
