Charlotte Knights field manager named Sports Field Manager of the Year.

A Charlotte Knights field manager was recently named the 2019 Triple-A Sports Field Manager of the Year.

Matt Parrott repeats for a third straight time, having won the honor in 2017 and 2018. He also won the award in the Double-A class in 2011 as a member of the Bowie Baysox (Eastern League). 

The award was presented by the Sports Turf Managers Association and Minor League Baseball. 

The Knights, a professional minor league baseball team, have been located in uptown Charlotte since 2014. The team is the Triple-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox. 

“The stellar submissions for this year’s MiLB Sports Field Manager of the Year awards highlights the critical role that STMA members play in presenting first class venues for players, coaches and fans,” says Kim Heck, CAE, CEO of STMA in a press release. “We are proud to honor the widespread talent and tireless commitment to excellence of our Minor League Baseball sports field managers.”

Parrott and the other award recipients will receive the honor at the Major League Baseball Winter Meetings during the Awards Luncheon on Monday, December 9, at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront in San Diego, California.
