Familiar face returns to league

The Revolution’s former director of baseball operations, Adam Gladstone, has returned to the league in the same role for the expansion Loudon County Hounds. The Hounds begin play in 2012.
In place with the club since Jan. 1, Gladstone (pictured above left with Chris Hoiles) returns to the Atlantic League after a one-year hiatus. Starting with his job as an umpire, Gladstone had been involved with the league since its inaugural 1998 season through August 2009. Fired by Opening Day Partners after the resignation of manager Hoiles in 2009, Gladstone has been busy with business opportunities outside the league during the 2010 season. He helped host a radio show with Hoiles in Baltimore, and the two have also partnered in a business to organize hunting trips with baseball celebrities.
Gladstone has worked in the league office, but most fans know him for his work in assembling teams. He was instrumental in signing players and assembling the roster for the league champion Lancaster Barnstormers in 2006. He also signed players for Bridgeport, Camden, Lancaster and York in 2007. He worked exclusively for York in 2008, helping to build the first playoff team in franchise history. Before coming to work for Opening Day Partners, Gladstone held the baseball operations job with the Somerset Patriots — helping to build the 2005 league championship team. He began his front office career in 1999, moving from the position of umpire to a member of the league’s front office — working for the league’s executive director, Joe Klein.
Check back to the York Daily Record later this week for more information on the Revs and a notebook about news from around the league.
