“Our connection with Allen and the entire Salem player development team will remain intact, and I know that with DBH executives like Pat Battle and Peter Freund at the helm, the organization is in safe hands. “What they are doing to improve the minor leagues through investment and technology will greatly benefit Salem and I have no doubt that under Allen’s able leadership they will continue to build on what has been established. in Salem.”
