On Thursday, it was announced that David Brauer will take over as Prospect League Commissioner effective immediately.

Brauer comes from the NCAA Division I Summit League where he spent the past decade serving as the Assistant Commissioner. The University of Illinois alum secured the largest broadcasting agreement in league history, established the Summit League Hall of Fame, and was an integral part in managing the marketing and communications for the Summit League’s 19 championship sports.

Springfield Lucky Horseshoes Chief Storyteller Jamie Toole is excited for the addition of Brauer to the Prospect League.

“We are thrilled with the addition of David Brauer as Commissioner of the Prospect League,” said Toole. “David’s experience and track record are impeccable, and we welcome him to the Prospect League.”

During his time at the Summit League, Brauer was instrumental in starting the league’s first podcast, weekly magazine television program, and branding used in popular media platforms including the USA Today.

The 2023 Prospect League kicks off on Wednesday, May 31st with the Springfield Lucky Horseshoes hosting Illinois Valley. Season Tickets and select packages are on sale now at Tickets.ShoesBaseball.Com
