TEAM HISTORY

O
The dream of one native son that began decades ago has not only
become a reality, but is about to enter its 16th season in 2014.
The story of the Altoona Curve begins in 1979. Area native Bob
Lozinak, a successful McDonald’s franchisee, knew his hometown
was a baseball haven and always dreamed of what it would be
like to have a professional sports team in his hometown. He had
a chance to make a dream of many come to fruition, so as the
1970s were about to come to a close, a series of meetings and
preliminary discussions took place to put the plan into motion.
However, there was enough opposition that thwarted the idea as
an initial fear from natives was that a professional team would hurt
the successful youth teams in the region. Professional baseball,
for the time being, was put on the back burner.

The future site of Blair County Ballpark with nearby
Lakemont Park in the distance

In the meantime, that same year, Bob and his family went across
the country and bought what became one of the most successful franchises in the entire country - the Albuquerque Dukes, the
long-time Triple-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fast-forward 16 years.
Like many other decisions in baseball, the latest round of major league expansion had a domino effect on the minor leagues.
In 1995, Arizona and Tampa Bay were awarded major league franchises to play their inaugural season in 1998. To keep pace,
baseball’s rookie level added two teams in 1996. The following year, Class ‘A’
and Class ‘AAA’ each increased by two teams.
That left only Class ‘AA’ in need of expansion to match the number of teams
in the big leagues. In 1997, the National Association of Professional Baseball
Leagues, as it was then called, decided the Eastern League would receive the
two new franchises to start play in 1999. Erie was an easy first choice of
the NAPBL’s expansion committee. After all, the SeaWolves had established
short-season attendance records in the new Jerry Uht Park as part of the New
York-Penn League from 1995-98.
The awarding of the second franchise wasn’t easy. For months, it seemed
Groundbreaking ceremonies, March 7, 1998
Springfield, Mass. would land the team. However, an inability to finalize land
and stadium finance deals left the NAPBL looking for another option. Enter Altoona. City native Bob Lozinak and a group of
Pennsylvania lawmakers put together an 11th hour stadium financing package and site plan. The proposal was presented to
the expansion committee at an October 5, 1997 meeting in Las Vegas. It received unanimous approval and Double-A baseball
was on its way to Altoona.
Ballpark ground breaking ceremonies took place on March 7, 1998 and the franchise was officially awarded the following month.
In June of that year, the team selected “Curve” as its nickname. The combination railroad/baseball moniker beat out several
choices like “Lake Monsters,” “Ridge Runners” and, believe it or not, “Fish”!
The next step for the Curve was affiliating with a major league team. Erie seemed to have an inside track on becoming the
Pirates’ new Double-A club, as the SeaWolves had served as Pittsburgh’s
short-season club from 1995-98. However, after a series of meetings with
potential major league parent clubs, the Curve landed the coveted affiliation
with the Pirates. The September 1998 announcement took the franchise
to another level as the U.S. Route 22 pairing seemed an ideal fit. Central
Pennsylvania fans, with their strong Pirates’ roots, could now cheer for the
Bucs’ top prospects on their way to Pittsburgh.
The long-awaited first game in Curve history took place on April 9, 1999
in Reading, Pa. The game against the Phillies’ affiliate was suspended
by rain and completed the next day as part of a doubleheader. For the
record, the Curve lost their first contest, 6-2, but recorded their first win
hours later with a 6-4 decision in game two of the twinbill.

the press conference announcing what has become one
of the longest and most successful affiliations between a
minor league franchise and a major league parent club.

Finally, the Curve christened Blair County Ballpark on April 15 with a
triumph over the Bowie Baysox. A huge crowd of 6,171 attended the
history-making contest despite cold, rainy weather and nearly a one-hour
delay.

O TEAM HISTORY

Between the 2002 and 2003 seasons, Blair County Ballpark underwent its first major capital expansion project, as a new thirdbase Picnic Area, left-field Party Deck and outfield reserved seating section were constructed. The additions of the new areas
brought the seating capacity of the ballpark to just over 7,200 and created enough room to hold nearly 10,000 fans on any night.

The 2005 edition of the Curve reached postseason play in dramatic fashion, sweeping a four-game
road series from Bowie during the final weekend of the season to reach the playoffs for a third
consecutive season. Despite losing in the first round of the playoffs, the Curve won big earlier in
the season when the franchise was named the host of the 2006 E.L. All-Star Game.

In the fall of 2006, the franchise won two prestigious awards, most notably the John H. Johnson President’s
Trophy, which is given annually to Minor League Baseball’s top club on the basis of long-time franchise
stability, contributions to and promotion of the baseball industry and the financial success of the team.
Also, the Curve were honored by Baseball America as the 2006 winner of the Double-A Bob Freitas Award.

In 2008, the Curve celebrated their storybook 10th anniversary season welcoming back plenty of former
stars, including Adam Hyzdu and Josh Bonifay, among many others. The Curve also unveiled their 10th
Anniversary All-Time team.
On June 17, Jimmy Carter, the 39th President of the United States attended the Curve versus Reading game
while on a fishing trip in nearby Huntingdon.
The Curve captured the
John H. Johnson Award in
2006 as the top
franchise in the country.

GENERAL INFORMATION

The 2007 season proved to be a year in which the Curve continued their winning ways, as the club marched
on to its sixth consecutive winning season. However, it wasn’t enough to qualify for postseason play, as
the club finished with an overall mark of 73-68. That season, plenty of the Pirates’ top prospects passed
through Blair County Ballpark. In addition to third-baseman Neil Walker and outfielder Andrew McCutchen,
first basemen Steve Pearce enjoyed one of the finest seasons in club history en route to being named the
2007 Topps Minor League Player of the Year.

PIRATES ORGANIZATION

Altoona would have a banner year in 2006. The highlight of the season, and arguably the top moment in the first eight seasons of Curve baseball, came on July 12th when Altoona played host to
Vice President Dick Cheney
the 2006 Eastern League All-Star Game. A Blair County Ballpark-record crowd of 9,308 were on addresses the crowd on his visit
hand to witness Curve All-Star Brett Roneberg take home MVP honors in a
to BCB on July 4, 2004.
5-3 win for the Southern Division All-Stars.

EASTERN LEAGUE

In 2004, the Curve, managed by Tony Beasley, finished with a league-best 85-56 record and not only returned to the playoffs,
but took the next step and advanced to the Eastern League Championship Series for the first time in club history before losing
to the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. The ‘04 season also turned out to be a banner year at the gates as the Curve added a fifth
consecutive franchise attendance record after drawing 394,062 fans to Blair County Ballpark.
Among those fans who attended Curve home games in 2004 was Vice President Dick Cheney, who
attended the club’s Fourth of July game against Harrisburg. Following the season, Curve General
Manager Todd Parnell was honored as the Eastern League Executive of the Year, while the franchise
was presented the prestigious Larry MacPhail Trophy symbolizing the top promotional effort, both
on and off the field, in all of baseball.

HISTORY/RECORDS

During the 2003 season, the Curve, led by third-year manager Dale Sveum, took the franchise to new heights on the field, posting
a 78-63 regular season record and securing the club’s first-ever Eastern League postseason berth. The Curve lost to the eventual
E.L. Champion Akron Aeros three-games-to-one in the first round of the playoffs. The playoff run helped fuel yet another franchise
attendance record as 365,376 fans came through the gates at Blair County Ballpark.

2014 CURVE

Blair County Ballpark ribbon cutting, April 15, 1999.

On August 5, 2002 the Curve announced a new four-year affiliation
agreement with Pittsburgh, securing one of baseball’s strongest
affiliations through 2006. Despite the ownership change, the Curve
franchise enjoyed its most successful season to that point, drawing
363,871 fans to Blair County Ballpark.

ORGANIZATION

After three remarkable seasons, the Lozinak family sold the franchise
to a group headed by Pittsburgh attorney Chuck Greenberg on April 2,
2002. Among the limited partners in Greenberg’s collective: Pittsburgh
Penguins’ owner, star center and NHL Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux;
Pittsburgh Steelers’ all-pro running back Jerome Bettis; Altoonabased businessmen Steve Sheetz and Don Devorris. Todd Parnell
was tabbed as the team’s new General Manager.

TEAM HISTORY

O

As for the team, though, the Curve underachieved as they suffered their first losing season since 2001, finishing with a mark of
65-77 and a fifth place finish in the Eastern League’s Southern Division.
However, 2008 will be remembered not for what happened during the season, but rather what happened following the season.
On Dec. 1, 2008, President and Managing Partner, Chuck Greenberg announced that his group was selling the Curve back to
original owner and visionary, Bob Lozinak. Greenberg announced that he was forming a sports consultation service and that
many members of the Curve upper management would join his endeavor, including General Manager Todd Parnell.
Shortly after the announcement of the sale, it was made public that David Lozinak would be appointed as the team’s Chief
Operating Officer, overseeing the day-to-day functions of the ball club.
The final block to the organization’s new foundation was laid on December 5, 2008 when the Lozinak Family announced that they
would bring back an old friend to steer the Curve into the future -- Rob Egan. Egan was the original play-by-play broadcaster for
the team from 1999-2004. He left baseball for four years, but returned to the minors to become just the fourth General Manager
in the club’s 11-year history.
On December 30, 2008, Minor League Baseball approved the sale of the Curve from Greenberg’s group back to Lozinak and the
second chapter of the Lozinak era officially began.
The new 2009 season saw the Altoona Curve stumble under first-year manager Matt Walbeck as the team got off to a franchise
worst 0-8 start and was never able to recover, finishing the year 62-80. However, the team did see one of the most prospectladen lineups ever assembled in team history. As Pirates General Manager Neal Huntington traded away many valuable players
at the major league level, an influx of talent came back in return. However, no one expected the fanfare that Pirates’ 2008 top
draft pick and top-rated prospect Pedro Alvarez would get when it was learned the New York native was being promoted from
Lynchburg (A) on June 23. A throng of media attention ensued, and Alvarez lived up to all his hype.
The third baseman hit .333 with 13 home runs and 40 RBIs in just 60 games with the Curve. He was named the 2009 Curve M.V.P.
not only for those staggering numbers, but primarily for the impact he had in the team’s overall success. In games in which
Alvarez played, the Curve were 34-26 (.567) while going just 26-51 (.338) in games where Alvarez did not play.
An outstanding partnership with the Pittsburgh Pirates became even stronger during the 2009 season when, on May 23, the
Curve and Pirates signed a four-year extension to their Player Development Agreement, which extended through the 2014 season.
With a solid affiliation under their belt, the Curve embarked on what was their most magical season in Altoona in 2010. From
the outset, the 2010 Curve had the swagger and winning attitude that would carry the club to its second division title and its
first-ever Eastern League Championship.
The cast of the 2010 club pretty much came as a cohesive unit from High-A Lynchburg, where they won the Mills Cup (Carolina
League championship) in 2009. On Opening Day 2010, Altoona was greeted by a prospect-laden roster that included four of the
Pirates Top-10 prospects according to Baseball America and eight of the Top-30 overall prospects. It was also a roster that had
veteran talent, and it proved to be the perfect mix to get Altoona off to a
nearly perfect start as the club started the season 7-1, a drastic turnaround
after starting 2009 0-8.
Included in those first eight games was one day where everything seemed
to fall into place for a memorable afternoon at BCB. After the first three
games of the season were played under dreary cold conditions, mother
nature opened the skies for a perfect 67-degree day on April 11th when
the national spotlight turned to Altoona for the first professional start of
Harrisburg Senators phenom Stephen Strasburg. More than 70 media
members from around the country and upwards of 7,800 people came to
watch the professional debut of the heralded Strasburg on the pictureperfect day in Curve, Pa. The game was also carried live on ESPN360.
com and had parts of it aired on ESPNews.
It was the first of two national exposure days for Blair County Ballpark
and the city of Altoona during 2010 as Andy Pettitte later started against
Altoona in the first game of the Eastern League Championship series.
Pettitte’s start brought the MLB Network and some of the New York Stephen Strasburg brought the sports world’s eyes to Altoona
on April 11, 2010 when the right hander made
spotlight to BCB as Pettitte’s Thunder met the Curve for the first time
his professional debut
in a playoff series.
All told, Altoona finished the regular season 82-60 to win its second division title and first since 2004. The 82 wins were second
most in franchise history behind the 2004 club’s 85 victories under manager Tony Beasley. After dispatching of Harrisburg three
games to one in the divisional round, the Curve forged on to the ELCS to meet Trenton.
Pettitte’s Thunder did take Game One but Altoona once again sprung back to take the final three games of the series. Curve
closer Daniel Moskos was able to get the final out via the strikeout at Waterfront Park in Trenton on September 18th to bring the
first-ever E.L. Championship to Altoona.

O TEAM HISTORY

HISTORY/RECORDS

The 2011 Curve didn’t get off to as
fast of a start as the 2010 championship-winning club but did come
out and compete on a nightly basis.
A strange streak occurred during the season’s first month as Altoona went on an unprecedented streak of 19-straight games of
alternating wins and losses. The streak ran from April 10th through May 1st and was snapped on May 2nd, when Altoona won
its second-straight game.

Eastern League Championship

2014 CURVE

Armed with a fresh new look for 2011,
the Curve were also given a makeover
in the coaching staff assignments as
P.J. Forbes became the sixth manager
in Altoona Curve history. Forbes, who
had piloted the Reading Phillies of
the Eastern League for three seasons
from 2006-08, was coming off of
back-to-back playoff appearances
with High-A Lynchburg and High-A
Bradenton in 2009 and 2010 (he led
the ‘09 Hillcats to a Mills Cup title)
before joining Altoona.

ORGANIZATION

A few short months after the first-ever E.L. title was won, the Curve as a franchise took another step forward by unveiling the
team’s new logo set, which paid homage to the railroad engineers that helped put Altoona on the map. Along with the fresh
new look came a new addition to the
mascot family with the team bringing
“Tenacious” into the fold.

Despite the streak and an eventual 64-77 finish to the season, many positive things happened on the field in 2011 and they began
with center fielder Starling Marte.

The speedy outfielder also set a few Curve single-season records along the way in 2011, posting franchise bests in outfield assists (18) and hits (178). In addition to his other accolades, Marte was both a mid-season and post-season E.L. All-Star, an XM
Futures Game Selection, an Eastern League August Player of the Month and a Topps Double-A All-Star.

Off the field, the Curve received much national notoriety for the first-ever,
on-field reversible cap, which was introduced in 2011. The cap featured
the new Curve engineer on the regular side and a “Rally Cap” on the inside
fashioned after rally mascot Al Tuna. The Curve’s Summer Cruise Night
Series, which combined a cruise giveaway with the stupendous films of
Tom Cruise, was also a finalist for a Golden Bobblehead for one of the
best promotions in Minor League Baseball. Average attendance at Blair
County Ballpark also rose for the first time since it climbed from 2005 to
the 2006 seasons.

& President Morgan O’Brien a Curve jersey at the Peoples
Natural Gas Field presser on January 31, 2012.

Altoona’s 2012 season began on April 5 with a very special announcement
from Pirates President Frank Coonelly, who announced to the Opening Night
crowd that the Pittsburgh Pirates would be returning to Altoona to play an
exhibition game before the 2013 season for the first time since 200. On the diamond, the Curve had an up-and-down season
under P.J. Forbes, who directed the Curve for a second-straight season. An end-of-the-season winning streak propelled the Curve
above the .500 mark and the team finished 72-70, but missed out on the E.L. playoff picture.

GENERAL INFORMATION

The offseason leading into the club’s 14th year of existence was also no
quiet one as the Curve forged a partnership with Peoples Natural Gas that
renamed the ballpark Peoples Natural Gas Field. The partnership not only
included a naming-rights deal but spurred economic development at the
park and surrounding areas with the use of green energy.

PIRATES ORGANIZATION

Season number 13 in Curve, Pa. also saw nine different former Curve players make their Major League debuts. Many of the
nine played for the 2010 Eastern League Championship club (Mike Crotta, Daniel Moskos, Josh Harrison, Tony Watson, Chase
d’Arnaud, Jared Hughes and Jeff Locke) while some were first-year Curve players that cracked the Pirates’ 25-man roster (Eric
Fryer and Aaron Thompson).

EASTERN LEAGUE

Marte, a native of Santo Domingo, D.R., was on the Curve roster from the get-go in 2011 and never ceased to impress. The
22-year-old proceeded to tear through the Eastern League en route to an Eastern League batting title and Eastern League Rookie
of the Year honors. It was the first time in franchise history that a member of the Curve had won the Rookie of the Year award
and it was also the first time that an active Curve player won the batting title (Jeff Keppinger won it in 2004 but spent the final
months of the season as a Binghamton Met).

TEAM HISTORY

O

In the future, the 2012 season may be remembered as the season where fans in Curve, Pa. had the opportunity to see two future
aces in the making with top prospects Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon both making their way to Double-A during the season.
Cole, the first-overall pick in the 2011 draft, reached Altoona on June 20 and made his debut at home while Taillon debuted
almost exactly two months later on the road in Trenton. It was the first time that both the No. 1 and No. 2 prospects in the
organization according to Baseball America were in Altoona at the same time since Andrew McCutchen and Neil Walker were in
Curve uniforms for the 2007 season.
Other standouts on the field for the Curve included shortstop Brock Holt, who eventually went on to make his Major League debut
later in the season with the Pirates. Holt stayed in Altoona until the beginning of August before he received his first promotion
to Triple-A. After putting on a hitting clinic with Altoona, Holt lampooned International League pitching to earn his call up to
Pittsburgh. The Texas native hit well enough with Altoona before his promotion and had enough at-bats to still hang on to win
the Eastern League batting title, marking the second-straight season a Curve batter won the crown.
Holt was part of 11 more former Curve players to make their debuts in the major leagues in 2012, bringing the overall number to
101 in 14 seasons. Another former Curve player who made a splash in the bigs in 2012 was Marte, who homered in his first at
bat as a member of the Pirates in Houston on July 26.
After being nominated for a Golden Bobblehead in 2011, the Curve franchise won a Golden Bobblehead in 2012 in the “Best Charity
Promotion or Event” category for its efforts with Curve, Pa. Blue Out Saturdays, which aimed at raising awareness and funds for
Prevent Child Abuse, Pennsylvania. The club, which partnered with six other teams across the state of Pennsylvania, wore Blue
jerseys in support of the cause for each Saturday home game and also helped raise funds through the sale of special Blue-Out
T-shirts and wristbands as well as text-to-donate programs. All told, the Curve’s efforts plus those of the other six participating
teams raised over $11,000 from the season-long efforts.

Fast forward to March of 2013 and the second-ever exhibition game between the Curve and Pirates. Despite snow the Monday
before the game, the temperatures warmed up and the Curve welcomed a franchise-record 10,116 fans to watch the Pirates and
Curve play their first exhibition game since 2000. Just like in 2000, fans were treated to a Curve victory, this time by a score of
8-6. Former Curve OF Starling Marte had himself a day, hitting a grand slam while going 2-for-3.
A pair big of big announcements also came with the Pirates-Curve Exhibition that day. The first announcement being that the
Curve and Pirates had extended their Player Development Contract a season early and extended it through the 2018 season.
When the affiliation reaches the 2018 season, the Curve and Pirates will be in their 20th year as parent and affiliate. It was then
revealed a short time later that the Eastern League All-Star Game was returning to Blair County with the Curve poised to host
the 2014 game at Peoples Natural Gas Field.
Altoona’s regular-season had its ups and downs and the team finished with a record of 63-79 under first-year manager Carlos
Garcia. Despite the record, fans were treated to some of the best prospects in the Pirates system throughout the season that
included RHP Jameson Taillon, OF Gregory Polanco, RHP Nick Kingham and SS Alen Hanson. Taillon, who had a cup of tea with
the Curve in 2012, spent a majority of 2013 with the club before a promotion to Triple-A in August while Polanco joined the team
in June and also went to Indianapolis during the month of August. Kingham joined the club midway through the year and finished
the campaign with the Curve. Hanson did the same but did not join the team until late July after beginning the year with Bradenton.
One couldn’t talk about the 2013 Curve season without talking about the performance of outfielder Alex Dickerson, who was in
his first season at the Double-A level. Dickerson, a native of Poway, Calif., had a slow start to the year before lighting the world
on fire from June until the end of the season. He went on to hit .288 for the season with 36 doubles, three triples, 17 home runs
and 68 RBI in 126 games en route to being named the Eastern League Rookie of the Year. He was the second Curve player to
ever win the award and the second in the last three seasons after Starling Marte won it in 2011.
The 2013 campaign also saw the club’s second ever no-hitter come to fruition when Ethan Hollingsworth, Jason Townsend,
Jhonathan Ramos and Ryan Beckman combine on a nine-inning no-no on July 25, 2013 in Manchester, N.H. versus the Fisher
Cats. It had been over 10 years since the Curve threw a no-hitter, which occurred in 2002 when Adrian Burnside, Neal McDade
and Chris Spurling accomplished the feat.
Now with 15 years in the books, the Curve franchise is set to enjoy a 16th season of baseball filled with excitement and fun with
the 2014 Eastern League All-Star Stop presented by UPMC Health Plan on July 15 and 16. Combine the excitement of hosting
an All-Star Game with the excitement oozing over from Pittsburgh with former Curve players impacting the Pirates success and
you have a combination that can make the 2014 season one of the most memorable yet.

O OWNERSHIP
Bob & Joan Lozinak, Managing Members

HISTORY/RECORDS

Lozinak sold the Dukes in 2000 so he could focus his efforts on his new franchise, the Altoona Curve.
After selling the Curve in 2002, the family purchased the West
Tenn Diamond Jaxx and would enjoy Double-A affiliations in
the Southern League with both the Chicago Cubs and the
Seattle Mariners before the team was sold in the early months
of the 2008 season.

EASTERN LEAGUE

Bob was born in Altoona on June 4, 1937. His college education was halted by five years of service in the Army during
the 1960s. Lozinak completed Officer Candidate’s School in
Lawton, Okla. and was honorably discharged as a 1st Lieutenant. Upon his departure from the Army, Lozinak returned to
finish his education at St. Francis College in Loretto, Pa. and
graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in History.
After college, Bob and Joan became McDonald’s franchisees
in 1969 and their role as an owner-operator continues with
stores in Hartford County, Maryland.

2014 CURVE

The Lozinaks had visions of bringing professional baseball to Altoona in
the late 1970s, but public opposition thwarted the idea. They then proceeded to buy the Triple-A Albuquerque Dukes from former Los Angeles
Dodgers owner Peter O’Malley and over the next 20 years (1979-2000), the
Dukes captured six Pacific Coast League titles and numerous awards for
club operations. Lozinak is among only a handful of minor league baseball
owners to have been awarded the prestigious John H. Johnson Trophy

the honor in both 1984 and 1991. Additionally, Albuquerque also captured
the Larry McPhail Trophy for the country’s top promotional effort in 1987.

ORGANIZATION

Bob and Joan Lozinak, both Altoona natives who always had dreams of
bringing professional baseball to their hometown, were finally able to
realize that dream in 1999. The original owners of the franchise from
1999-2001, Bob and Joan along with their three sons, Mike, David and
Steve, reacquired their hometown team on December 30, 2008.

David enters his sixth year as the Chief Operating Officer of the Altoona Curve. His day-to-day responsibilities are to oversee the
entire operation of the franchise.
Prior to his family reacquiring the team in December 2008, Lozinak held the same position with the West Tenn Diamond Jaxx of
the Southern League.
Lozinak also spent three years working in the Accounting and Concessions departments for the Albuquerque Dukes, a team that
his family owned and operated from 1979-2000.
David is a 1987 graduate of Widener University with a degree in Business Administration. He resides in Hollidaysburg with his
wife, Aimee, daughter, Katie and son Will.

robEGAN|general manager
The team’s radio voice for the first six seasons (1999-2004), Rob Egan was named the fourth General Manager in Altoona Curve
history on December 5, 2008. Egan returned to the Curve after spending nearly four years as the Secretary for Communications for
the Catholic Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown (2005-08). Egan also created and hosted the daily sports talk show “Front & Center”
on the ESPN Radio affiliates in Altoona and State College in 2005, hosting it for three and a half years.
Egan enters his 16th season in professional baseball, spending the majority of his career in the fields of communications and
public relations. Prior to his first stint with the Curve (1999-2004), he worked for minor league clubs in Charleston, S.C. (1997-98),
Johnstown (1996), and Salinas, Calif. (1995).
During his first five years as General Manager, the franchise has achieved several firsts:
• In November 2010, the Curve unveiled entirely new logos and uniform designs which redefined the team’s brand for the first
time since the club’s original marks were revealed in 1998. The new logos embrace the region’s railroad history by incorporating
an engineer character as the centerpiece with the iconic Pennsylvania keystone also used in the backdrop.
• In 2011, for the first time since 2006, the Curve’s average home attendance increased. An enhanced promotional and marketing
effort including more giveaway events, increased social media interaction with fans, and more ticket and food value programs,
produced the increase.
• In January 2012, the Curve announced another first as the franchise prepared for its 14th season. Peoples Natural Gas, a
marketing partner since relocating its headquarters in Pittsburgh in 2010, agreed to acquire the naming rights to Blair County
Ballpark with a long-term pact. As part of the relationship, the Curve installed a state-of-the-art video marquee with the Peoples
Natural Gas Field logo along Park Avenue to inform all who pass by of upcoming games, promotions, and events at the facility.
• In 2012, the Curve once again increased average home attendance - the first time the club has experienced back-to-back seasons
of growth in attendance since 2003-04. Along the way, the franchise announced its “Curve, PA Blue Out Saturdays” initiative
designed to increase awareness and fundraising for Prevent Child Abuse Pennsylvania. The Curve dedicated every Saturday
home game to the effort and reached out to all of the other affiliated clubs in Pennsylvania to join them. With their collective
efforts, over $11,000 was raised and over 80,000 minor league baseball fans around the commonwealth were exposed to the
important message in the wake of one of the worst scandals in sports history. The Curve were recognized for the outreach with
Minor League Baseball’s Golden Bobblehead award for best charitable promotion.
• On opening night of the 2012 season, the Curve and Pirates announced that they would play an exhibition game in Altoona in
March 2013. The game was to mark the first time the major league club had played in Altoona since 2000.
• On March 30, 2013, a franchise-record crowd of 10,116 watched as the Curve hosted the Pirates on a sun-splashed afternoon at
Peoples Natural Gas Field. Before the game, Pirates’ president Frank Coonelly announced that the affiliation between the Major
League club and the Curve was being extended for four more years through the 2018 season. During the game, Egan announced
with Eastern League President Joe McEacharn and Minor League Baseball President Pat O’Conner that the Curve would be hosting
the 2014 EL All-Star Game for the first time since 2006.
A 1991 graduate of Central Michigan University, Egan serves on the boards of Explore Altoona and the Miracle League of Blair
County. He is also a member of the Blair County Chamber of Commerce Attractions Committee, a past board member and chairperson for Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown, and a lector at Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament Catholic
Parish. A native of Grand Blanc, Mich., Egan resides in Altoona with his wife, CK, and four children: Drew, Gabe, Caroline and Regina.

Former Pittsburgh Pirates All Star Carlos Garcia returns to Altoona to pilot the Curve for a
second straight season in 2014 after leading the club to a 63-79 record last season. The
2014 campaign will be Garcia’s fourth-straight season managing in the Pirates’ system after spending 2011-12 with the Bradenton Marauders and 2013 in Altoona. Prior to his time
in Bradenton, Garcia spent the 2010 season as the first base coach and infield instructor
for the Pirates at the major league level. All told, 2014 will mark Garcia’s seventh season
in the Pirates organization. His stay in the Pirates chain began in 2008 when he served as
the club’s minor league infield coordinator.
With the Curve in 2013, Garcia and his staff led the development of some of the top prospects in the Pirates system that included RHP Jameson Taillon and OF Gregory Polanco.
Both Taillon and Polanco received promotions to Triple-A towards the end of the season
after productive stints with the Curve under the tutelage of Garcia & Co.
In addition to his managerial experience over the past three seasons, Garcia managed
Magallanes in the Venezuelan Winter League in 2009 and 2011. In 2009, the native of
Ciudad Bolivar, Venezuela led Magallanes to a 41-22 regular-season record and a berth in
the Championship Series (a series which they lost to Caracas, 4-3). His overall coaching
career began in the Cleveland Indians chain as a player-coach in 2002.
As a player, Garcia spent 10 total seasons in the Major Leagues with Pittsburgh (1990-96),
Toronto (1997), Anaheim (1998) and San Diego (1999). He made his Major League debut
on September 20, 1990 as a member of the Buccos and singled as a pinch hitter versus
the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. He hit a career-high 12 home runs for Pittsburgh in
1993 with his first career home run coming as an inside-the-park home run off Orel Hershiser at Dodger Stadium on April 16 that same season.
In 1995, Garcia amassed a 21-game hitting streak for the Bucs and then a year later hit
the 8,000th home run in Pittsburgh Pirates history on April 13, 1996.
All told, Garcia had a career average of .266 in 610 big league games with a total of 33
home runs, 197 RBI and 73 stolen bases. His last Major League game came with the San
Diego Padres on April 15, 1999. While with the Buccos and Blue Jays, Garcia chose to
wear the number 13 as a tribute to former Reds shortstop and Venezuelan native Dave
Concepcion.
The Venezuelan native currently resides in Depew, N.Y. with his wife Cathy and three
children; Carlos Jr. and twins Isabel and Emanuel.

Kyles came to Altoona in 2013 after spending three-and-a-half years as the bullpen coach
for Milwaukee from 2009-2012. Before to his work in the majors, Kyles served as the
pitching coach for three seasons at Triple-A Nashville from 2005-08. His other stops as
a pitching coach in the Brewers system included Triple-A Indianapolis (2004), Double-A
Huntsville (2002-03) and High-A High Desert (2001). Before his time with Milwaukee,
Kyles coached in the Cubs system (1992-93, 1997-2000) and in the Rockies system (199496). 2014 will be his 24th season as a coach after starting his coaching career in 1991
with Bend of the Independent Western League.

ORGANIZATION

Stan Kyles returns for his second season in Altoona in 2014 after performing the same
duties under Carlos Garcia in 2013. Kyles was tasked with the development of the Pirates’
second-best prospect according to Baseball America in 2013 with RHP Jameson Taillon.
Taillon started the season in Double-A under Kyles and went on to post a 4-7 record with
a 3.67 ERA in 20 games (19 starts) before being promoted to Triple-A in early August. The
Curve pitching staff as a whole in 2013 finished with a team ERA of 3.92, which was fifth in
the 12-team Eastern League.

Ryan Long, or Ryno as some fans in Curve, Pa. might know him, retains his role as the
team’s hitting coach for the 2014 season and is in his second stint in the role. Long previously served a two-year tour in Curve, Pa. as the hitting instructor from 2009-2010 before
assuming the same role with the Bradenton Marauders in 2011.

In previous seasons, other Curve hitters that have flourished under Long have been Brock
Holt (won E.L. batting title in 2012), Hector Gimenez (.305 average in 2010) and Alex
Presley (.350 average in 67 games before promotion to Triple-A in 2010).
This will be Long’s fifth season in a Curve uniform and his sixth overall in the Pittsburgh
organization after spending two seasons as the hitting coach for the Burlington Bees
(Kansas City Royals affiliate in the Midwest League). Prior to his time with the Kansas City
organization, Long spent six seasons (2001-06) as a coach in the White Sox farm system.
All told, 2014 will mark Long’s 15th season as a minor league coach. He was originally
drafted by Kansas City in the second round of the 1991 draft and went on to play for ten
seasons professionally.
He appeared in six games for the Royals in 1997, going 2-for-9 with a pair of RBI while
collecting his first MLB hit off Seattle’s Randy Johnson on July 18, 1997.
Long was born in Houston, Texas and currently resides in Pearland, Texas with his wife
Olivia and their son Easton.

FACTOID: OPEN THE GATES
The first-ever home game in Curve history took place on April 15, 1999 when a crowd of 6,171 (a sellout) braved rainy
conditions and a one-hour rain delay for the home opener against the Bowie Baysox. The Curve defeated the Baysox, 6-1, as
Bronson Arroyo tossed 5.1 scoreless innings to notch the first of his 15 wins -- a club record -- which remains intact entering
the 2011 season. Garrett Long hit the first home run at BCB, a two-run shot in the fourth inning to give the Curve an early, 2-0,
lead. Altoona broke the game open by scoring four runs in the seventh inning, highlighted by a Craig Wilson two-run homer.

FACTOID: CRAZY EIGHTS
In 2010, Curve outfielder Alex Presley had an unprecedented day at the plate on May 24 in Akron. The Monroe, La. native
exploded for eight RBI to surpass Curve legend Adam Hyzdu for the most RBI in one game in franchise history. That feat
was duplicated in 2013 by another Curve OF in Alex Dickerson, who tied the mark on July 26 in Manchester, N.H. against the
Fisher Cats. Dickerson was 3-for-6 that day with a home run and two runs scored. It was part of a big weekend in Manchester
as it came one night after the Curve threw the second combined no-hitter in franchise history.

ADAM HYZDU

R
It didn’t take long for the city of Altoona to show the critics who said the area was too small
to support a professional baseball team that it has as knowledgeable and caring fans as
anywhere minor league baseball is played. It didn’t take Adam Hyzdu long to discover that
fact either.
When the minor league veteran signed as a free agent with the Pirates shortly after being
released by the Red Sox organization early in the 1999 season, Curve fans were just getting
used to their new team and its beautiful new ballpark. Few probably even knew the names
of the players they were cheering for. But soon, everyone knew about Hyzdu.
He was the club’s Most Valuable Player during the inaugural 1999 season, batting .316 with 24
home runs and 78 RBI in just 91 games, before earning a late-season promotion to Triple-A.
Most people thought they had seen the last of Hyzdu in a Curve uniform.
However, after a less-than-intent look from the Pirates in major league spring training, and
much to the surprise of the fans of Altoona, Hyzdu returned to the Curve for the 2000 season.
Although perhaps initially upset about returning to the Double-A level for the fifth time in his
career, Hyzdu tore up Eastern League pitching and in return won the hearts of Curve fans. In
142 games for the 2000 Curve, he batted .290 with team records for home runs (31) and RBI
(106) and earned the Eastern League’s Most Valuable Player Award. By the middle of the season, the entire city of Altoona was campaigning for Hyzdu’s promotion to the major leagues.
And just when it appeared as though Adam Hyzdu’s 11th season as a professional baseball
player would end without a major league at-bat, he had the week of his life. On September 4th,
following a season-ending loss to Akron, his number 16 jersey was retired by the Curve--an
honor not normally bestowed upon a minor league baseball player. Then, just four days later,
Hyzdu received the call he had been waiting for--he was heading to the major leagues with the
Pittsburgh Pirates! He singled in his first major league at-bat on September 8th and 12 days
later hit his first major league home run against the Philadelphia Phillies at Veterans Stadium.
After returning to the minor leagues to open 2001, he was recalled by the Pirates in May and
spent the majority of the season with the major league club. On July 4th that season, in his
hometown of Cincinnati, Hyzdu hit two homers against the Reds, bringing his baseball playing career full circle from the days when he was belting home runs at Moeller High School.
After spending parts of the 2002 and 2003 seasons with Pittsburgh, Hyzdu left the Pirates’
organization to join the Boston Red Sox system in 2004. After hitting .301 with 29 homers
and 79 RBI for Triple-A Pawtucket, Adam was rewarded with a September call-up to the
playoff-bound Boston Red Sox and had a chance to remain with the club as the Sox did the
unthinkable and won the franchise’s first World Series title since 1918.
In 2005, despite spending most of the season in the minor leagues with both the Padres
and Red Sox’ organizaFACTOID: THE LEGEND OF HYZDU
tions, Hyzdu appeared
in 29 big league games
Hyzdu’s two-year stint in Altoona left quite a dent on the record
between San Diego and
books as he still holds the franchise’s single-season mark in
Boston, marking the
sixth season in which six different offensive categories:
Home Runs: 31
Runs: 96
he had seen action
in the major leagues.
RBI: 106
Extra-Base Hits: 72
2005 also brought a
Games Played: 142
Slugging %: .612
milestone in Adam’s
career as he appeared
in a major league postseason game for the first time.
The 2006 season saw Hyzdu appear for his fourth major league team as he played in two
games for the Texas Rangers after signing with the club as a minor league free agent in
November 2005. Hyzdu spent the 2007 season in Japan before announcing his retirement
at the end of the year, capping off an 18-year playing career. Currently, Adam lives in Arizona
and works for the Children’s Miracle Network.

FACTOID: BOOM, HOME RUNS
Led by Josh Bonifay’s 25 home runs, the ‘05 Altoona Curve established the single-season franchise record by clubbing a total
of 141 big flies in 142 regular-season games. The 25 home runs hit by Bonifay are the second-most in club history, trailing
only Adam Hyzdu’s 31 hit during the 2000 season. Team MVP Jose Bautista was second on the ‘05 club with 23 homers, while
three other players, Craig Stansberry (18), Tom Evans (15) and Brad Eldred (13), also reached double figures. By contrast, the
lone championship Curve team in 2010 only slugged 80 regular-season home runs, but hit 14 in their eight playoff games.

FACTOID: WHEN THE LIGHTS SHINE DOWN ON A CITY
The nation’s eyes turned to Blair County Ballpark on April 11, 2010 when Washington Nationals prospect Stephen Strasburg
made his professional debut in front of a record crowd at Blair County Ballpark. The game, which was broadcast on ESPN360.
com and had live look-ins taken by ESPNews, brought a crowd of 7,887 to BCB on Sunday afternoon. It was the largest
single-game crowd to take in a Curve game in the month of April in franchise history.

“A minor league ballpark is one thing. An amusement park is another. But tucked in the
Allegheny Mountains is a place where there’s really no difference.”
-- USA Today, August 8, 2002
Opened on April 15, 1999, Peoples Natural Gas Field is widely considered by fans, players, baseball executives and media as
one of the finest minor league baseball facilities in America. Located just off Interstate 99 in Altoona, the ballpark features a
beautiful brick exterior and the design is modeled after a railroad roundhouse to tie in the industry which helped found the city
of Altoona and is still very much present to this day. The inside of Peoples Natural Gas Field features more than 7,200 fixed
seats between two levels. The double-deck layout of the seating section allows for expansive lower and upper concourses,
giving fans plenty of space to walk around the ballpark without having to fight through a stationary crowd of people. The “Skyliner” roller coaster from neighboring Lakemont Park and the scenic Allegheny Mountains add to the overall beauty of Peoples
Natural Gas Field.

In addition to the flagship station, fans in the Tyrone area just north of Curve, Pa. can tune in to WTRN-AM 1340/FM 100.7 in
Tyrone. WTRN will carry all Curve games that do not directly conflict with the Pirates. Fans in the Pittsburgh area that would like
to listen in can do so for select weekend games thanks to our partner 970 ESPN in Pittsburgh.
All 142 games will also be available to out-of-market listeners via AltoonaCurve.com and on mobile devices (iPhone/Android/
Windows Phone/BlackBerry/Amazon Kindle) with the TuneIn Radio App. Curve fans can also watch all 71 home games and select
Curve road games (if the visiting team is equipped with MiLB.tv capabilities) with a subscription to MiLB.tv. For more information
on subscribing to MiLB.tv, visit MiLB.tv on the web.
As in previous seasons, most games on ESPN Radio 1430 will be preceded by “Sports Central with Cory Giger”, which is hosted
by Cory Giger, the longtime Curve and Penn State beat writer for the Altoona Mirror. Sports Central airs from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.,
Monday through Friday, on WVAM in Altoona and on WQWK-AM 1450 in State College. The show will preview nightly Curve action
as well as provide in-depth interviews with Curve coaches and prospects throughout the season.
The Curve and Forever Broadcasting will also continue their cross-promotional and marketing relationships from past seasons in
2014. Popular on-air personalities from the Forever Broadcast family of stations (Froggy98, Rocky 104.9, WALY 103.9, HOT 100,
The Big 1290 WFBG and ESPN Radio 1430 WVAM) will continue to have a presence at Peoples Natural Gas Field to take part in
contests and in-game events throughout the season. Fans can expect to hear Curve staffers pop on with the Forever family to
join the on-air personalities on a regular basis during the season as well.

G BROADCASTERS
Mike Passanisi (Fifth Season)

Prior to his time in Altoona, Passanisi was the Director of Media Relations and Creative Services for the Savannah Sand Gnats
(New York Mets) of the South Atlantic League for two seasons. He worked with the San Diego Surf Dawgs of the Golden Baseball
League before his time in the South and had the privilege of providing color analysis for one of Jose Canseco’s last comeback
attempts in 2006, which was carried live on ESPNews.

2014 CURVE

A product of San Diego State University with a degree in journalism and a minor in history, it’s no secret that Passanisi enjoys
warm weather and often wears gloves in the office during the offseason due to the coldness outside. During his time at San Diego
State he interned in the San Diego State Media Relations Department and has worked at the NCAA Tournament, McDonald’s High
School All-American Game and the AFLAC All-American Game.

ORGANIZATION

Mike Passanisi enters his fifth season with the Curve in 2014 and his first as the AGM of Communications. Panini for short, Mike
has been with the Curve since taking over the broadcast duties just before the end of the 2010 season.

Passanisi A a native of Penngrove, Calif., which is located about an hour north of San Francisco near the wine country, but has
also lived in San Diego and Savannah, Ga. When the team isn’t in season, Passanisi has attempted to trot the globe in as many
foreign lands as possible. In the last three years he’s visited Austria, England, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, United Kingdom
of the Netherlands, Italy and Switzerland.

Mike Baggerman (First Season)

HISTORY/RECORDS

When he isn’t globetrotting, he’s basking the glow of his San Francisco Giants winning two of the past four World Series championships as well as the national stardom of his alma mater San Diego State’s men’s basketball team running up and down the
Top-25 charts.

Mike Baggerman begins his first season with the Curve in 2014 as Altoona’s broadcaster and communications assistant. This
is Mike’s fourth season in minor league baseball and his first year at the Double-A level.

In his spare time, you can catch Mike running around the Altoona area. When he’s not running, he enjoys sitting on his couch
and watching The Walking Dead, Face/Off, and, most likely, professional wrestling.
