Madrigal has worked for the Pirates since 2007, most recently holding the title of Manager, Sales and Marketing.

“I’m excited by the opportunity and the challenge of this new position,” Madrigal said. “This Spring Training was our most successful, and we’ve enjoyed a strong start to the Marauders season at historic McKechnie Field. I’m looking forward to continuing to foster a vibrant, fun and family friendly environment for our fans to enjoy this summer.”
