The New Bedford Bay Sox have recently announced a new non-profit Board of Directors.

According to a press release, Bay Sox President Pat O'Connor announced last week the organization has consolidated its operations into a single not-for-profit entity (New Bedford Baseball, a 501c-3 organization).

The new nine-member board will be chaired by Tara Kohler. O'Connor will continue to serve as President and CEO of the team.

The creation of this board will allow the Bay Sox to operate year round and better focus on community driven initiatives as well as summer baseball operations.
