What: April Convocation Series Presents: Tim Bawmann
2013 represents Tim Bawmann's 24th season in minor league baseball and his tenth season as the General Manager of the Lowell Spinners. His baseball career started in 1988 as an Assistant to the General Manager of the Beloit Brewers. Later that year he joined the Houston Astros organization at their Spring Training home in Kissimmee, FL. In 1991 he was promoted to General Manager and Spring Training Coordinator. While with the Astros he initiated a name change from the Osceola Astros to the Kissimmee Cobras in 1995. In 1997 he was named the Vice President/General Manager of the Quad City River Bandits and held that post into the 2001 season. In 2003 he returned to the Florida State League as the Director of Sales and Marketing for the Montreal Expos owned, Brevard County Manatees.
During his time in Lowell, Bawmann has overseen a number of record-setting attendance marks, including the team's first season over 200,000 in 2010, as well as a sell-out streak of over 400 games and a number of corporate sales records. He also added summer baseball camps, sleep-over camp-outs on the field, Yankees Elimination Promotion and an annual "Spreadin' The Love Tour" to the Spinners lineup.
A constant presence throughout the park, Bawmann can be seen on game days doing everything from tarp pulls to dragging the warning track or conducting a Thomas the Tank Engine ride. In 2010 Bawmann added to his responsibilities, the title of President of the Nashua Silver Knights, a founding member of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League and a team managed by the Spinners' staff.
