Diamond Ticketing Systems is proud to announce a new partnership with the professional baseball team, the Laredo Lemurs. Through Diamond’s ImagiTix box office and on-line ticketing engine, the company looks forward to many successful seasons with the team.
The Lemurs are part of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball Leagues, an organization hailing back to its founding in 1902 with a rich history in the minor leagues, providing the launch of such storied players as Ted Williams, Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays. The American Association formed to support the larger cities in the midwest and continues that tradition today.
President Marcus Holliman says the Lemurs are pleased to have established a 25-year association with the City of Laredo. The team is skippered by Manager Pete Incaviglia who was the 15th player in Major League Baseball draft history to debut without playing in the minor leagues. He was a first-round pick, 8th overall, and landed with the Texas Rangers. He appeared in the 1993 World Series with the Philadelphia Phillies. His performance while at Oklahoma State University, won Pete the single-season NCAA record of 48 home runs and 148 RBIs.
Through the 2014 season Incaviglia has led the Lemurs to a 164-135 win-loss record. With over 130,000 in attendance last season, the team placed third in the league in both team hitting, with a .298 average, and pitching at a 4.08 ERA. Standouts were Nick van Stratten hitting .349 and Cesar Carrillo, the AA League-leading hurler with a 2.80 ERA.
So far this season the team’s record is 34-28. Ty Morrison is currently hitting .378. Luis Pollorena, a survivor of childhood leukemia and a native of Laredo, is leading the pitching staff with a 2.06 ERA. Luis was acquired from the Texas Rangers organization. And Lemur Alumnus Chaz Roe, a former Yankee thrower, has an ERA of 2.30 with the Baltimore Orioles at mid-season.
Diamond Ticketing Systems is pleased to be associated with the Laredo Lemurs and the professional minor league baseball industry.
