Put me in coach! Fourth Economy Fields a Minor League Baseball Team
Fourth Economy has been doing a lot of work recently in communities with minor league baseball teams. Here is a sample:
Team: Macon Bacon
We are working with OneMacon! in the development of a new actionable strategic plan.
Traverse City, Michigan
Team: Traverse Pit Spitters
We are working on a reorganization and partnership plan for local economic development organizations. The ultimate goal is to bring private sector, nonprofit and local municipalities, together around a strategic approach to economic development in order to grow a competitive, prosperous and sustainable regional economy.
Newport, Rhode Island
Team: Newport Gulls
We are working with the Newport County Chamber of Commerce on an initiative launched by the Chamber in 2018: Connect Greater Newport. Connect Greater Newport’s mission is to support the growth of Greater Newport’s existing businesses and serve as a resource to attract new companies to the region.
Team: Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs
We are working with the City of Allentown to develop a Comprehensive and Economic Development Plan.
Being around all these minor league baseball teams has got us thinking… maybe we could start a team of our own! Today, on April Fool’s Day, we are celebrating the start of the baseball season by announcing our plans to start a minor league baseball team: the Fourth Economy Fish Fryers.
We’re trading in our post-it notes and powerpoints for baseball bats and gloves. Instead of spending time in boardrooms, we’ll be spending time in bullpens. Fresh off of spring training, we know this year is our year (or at least better than the Pirates). Here’s our lineup.
