Elise Boutet has been named as the director of ticketing and special events for the 2019 season for the Napa Silverados baseball club.
Boutet served as an intern for the Silverados in 2018.
“I am delighted to have Elise back with the club this year,” Silverados owner Bruce Johnston said in a press release. “As an intern in our inaugural 2018 season, she did a terrific job in a lot of different roles. She is very familiar with the ins and outs of our ticketing system, and will also contribute in special events planning and marketing. She is a terrific addition to the team.”
The Silverados are going into their second year in the Pacific Association of Professional Baseball Clubs. It’s a Northern California-based summer independent league that was founded in 2013 and consists of six teams.
The Silverados play their home games at Napa Valley College. San Rafael, Sonoma, Vallejo, Pittsburg and Martinez are also in the league.
The league’s regular season begins in late May and continues for three months over the summer.
The league is not affiliated with major league teams.
Boutet is a 2015 graduate of Novato High School. She will be graduating from UC Davis in March with a degree in economics and a minor in sociology.
The club is in discussions with additional candidates to add to the staff, as there are openings in stadium operations, baseball operations, marketing, community relations, and sponsorship sales, said Johnston.
For more information, contact Johnston at (707) 254-8377 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
