The Home Crew Coalition, a group of community and business leaders who support a solution to keep Major League Baseball in Wisconsin for the next generation, is adding more prominent Wisconsin voices to its leadership board, according to a press release. The Coalition on Tuesday announced three new members joining the Crew:
- Tony Bugher, President, Leinenkugel Brewing Co.
- Earnell Lucas, Vice President of Security, Fiserv, and former Milwaukee County Sheriff
- Ivan Gamboa, Senior Vice President, Tri City National Bank
“Tony, Earnell, and Ivan bring important perspectives to the board and we are proud to have them join the Crew,” Home Crew Coalition Chairman Omar Shaikh said in a statement. “The impact of Major League Baseball in Wisconsin is wide. It stretches across communities and sectors of our economy. I look forward to continuing to grow bipartisan support for a solution, and I am thrilled to have new voices joining our board who will be tireless advocates for baseball in Wisconsin.”
The coalition aims to raise awareness about the economic benefits the ballpark provides to Wisconsin, where Shaikh said it has generated an estimated $2.5 billion in statewide economic impact since opening in 2001.
