Staff Profile: Patrick Day – A General Who Manages the Madness.
In the coming weeks, Crustacean Confidential will be taking some time to look behind the scenes at the people that make the world go ‘round in the universe of the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs.
It would be unfair to start off this series of staff profiles without first focusing on the one and only Patrick Day. As the General Manager for the Blue Crabs, Patrick oversees every aspect of day-to-day operations at Regency Furniture Stadium and the front office. Behind the craziness and excitement of every Blue Crabs game, it all starts with Mr. Day.
