Charleston RiverDogs assistant general manager Jim Pfander, who has handled the wacky and wild promotions for the past six years, has accepted a position as the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Akron Aeros, the AA affiliate of the Cleveland Indians.

An Akron, Ohio native himself, this will be a homecoming of sorts for Pfander.

Pfander shared these parting words with RiverDogs family:

"I thank (RiverDogs President) Mike Veeck, (Owner) Marv Goldklang, (General Manager) Dave Echols and the rest of the Charleston staff for affording me this opportunity to return home and lead the Akron Aeros," said Pfander. "The RiverDogs' organization is a class-act and I look forward to infusing the fun and excitement at Riley Park to Canal Park in Akron. My family and I will miss Charleston and the RiverDogs family of fans, season ticket holders and sponsors, but we look forward to the opportunities ahead."
