Mobile BayBears General Manager Chris Morgan is leaving the organization.

Morgan is resigning effective Friday.

Morgan has led the BayBears franchise since 2014.

He was voted Southern League Executive of the Year this past season.

The BayBears are the Double A affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels.

The BayBears will play one more season in Mobile. They will be moving to Madison for the 2020 season.

The new owners of the ball club took over the day to day operations Monday.

Prior to becoming the General Manager of the BayBears, Morgan served for 16 years as the Senior Bowl’s Director of Game Operations.

After careful consideration, I have made the decision to step away from the Mobile BayBears to pursue other opportunities. I have thoroughly enjoyed my 4 years as General Manager of the BayBears and want to thank Mike Savit and HWS Baseball for providing me with the opportunity to oversee the organization back in 2014. I also want to thank our fans, sponsors, media partners, and city officials for their support. Most importantly, much appreciation goes to the members of our front office staff who have always put forth tremendous effort and maintained a positive mindset each and every day, despite unique and occasionally difficult circumstances. I wish them and everyone associated with the BayBears organization nothing but the best in 2019 and encourage the public to show their support during the team's final season.
