The Lexington County Blowfish Baseball Club announced Monday that Tony Baldwin is the team’s new general manager.

Baldwin recently held the position of vice president of marketing for both the Macon Bacon and Florence Flamingos in the Coastal Plain League. Among his many tasks, he oversaw the marketing strategy for both clubs and brings nearly two decades of experience in collegiate athletics in the areas of sales, marketing, and communications.

“Vicki and I believe Tony’s sales and marketing experience, enthusiasm, determination and love for the game will fit in beautifully with our team and community,” said Co-Owner Bill Shanahan. “We couldn’t be more excited to have him lead the Blowfish. Paired with seven-year veteran and Assistant General Manager Matt Jinnette, our management team is now complete, and the future looks brighter than ever at Lexington County Baseball Stadium.”

Tony and his wife, Martha, are new residents of Lexington County, having recently moved from Macon. Martha is the new office manager for Lexington Women’s Care in Chapin, part of Lexington Medical Center’s Network of Care Partners.

“It’s a great honor to accept the position of general manager of the Lexington County Blowfish,” said Baldwin. “I want to thank Bill and Vicki Shanahan for this tremendous opportunity. I’m excited to create a great experience for our fans and continue providing affordable family entertainment in Lexington County.”

The former collegiate baseball player Baldwin was the Assistant Athletics Director for Digital Strategy and Corporate Sponsorships at St. Edward's University in Austin, Texas. He also spent six years working at UTSA in San Antonio, Texas.
