Lehigh Valley names Landes as GM

October 05, 2006

Former Hagerstown Suns president and general manager Kurt Landes was named general manager of the yet-to-be-named Lehigh Valley franchise on Wednesday.

Lehigh Valley, which will be based in Allentown, Pa., will be the Triple-A franchise of the Philadelphia Phillies in 2008. The team will be moved from Ottawa after the 2007 season.

Landes was introduced Wednesday in an Allentown area press conference along with team president Chuck Domino, who is also president of the Reading Phillies.

Landes resigned from his Suns position on Sept. 28 after five years.
