The Lake Erie Crushers are proud to announce that they have re-signed Field Manager Cameron Roth for the 2018 & 2019 Frontier League seasons.
Roth will enter his second full season as the Field Manager and seventh season in total within the Frontier League, having served as one of the Schaumburg Boomers coaches in 2014-16 after playing for them in 2012 and 2013.
“First off I would like to thank the Kramig family for granting me the opportunity to continue my career with one of the premier organizations in independent baseball. Although the time spent here has been brief, Lake Erie has quickly became the place I call home and I am ecstatic to continue to call this place home. Lake Erie is where I want to be for many reasons; from the electric atmosphere provided by the fans all the way to the relationship that has been acquired between the Kramigs and myself. After taking over baseball operations mid-season in 2016 and seeing the improvements and dedication that have transpired from the entire Lake Erie Crushers staff, off and on the field, I knew I wanted to be a part of what was happening around me for as long as possible.”
Last season, the Crushers finished with a 45 – 51 regular season record and had three players selected to the Frontier League’s All-Star game. Over the course of his two seasons as field manager, Roth has led the Crushers to a 93 – 99 (0.484) regular season record.
Prior to his start with the Crushers, Roth served as the bench coach, pitching coach and even the hitting coach for the Schaumburg Boomers. The left-handed pitcher is a former Baltimore Orioles draft pick as well as a former Boomer. During his second season playing for the Boomers, Roth retired from competitive baseball due to multiple back surgeries.
