“We are ecstatic about this hire, and the experience and relationships Todd brings,” SFM Vice President Jack Adams said in a statement. “We expect he will elevate the already outstanding reputation Elizabethtown Sports Park has in the region and country. We look forward to seeing him build creative programs and events to Elizabethtown for both local residents and out-of-town visitors. Todd is a great addition to our network of General Managers.”SFM Vice President, Jack Adams
Elizabethtown Sports Park will benefit from Yancey’s extensive experience in the youth and amateur travel sports industry. He will be able to develop out-of-the-box programming for the community and especially assist in the creation of events for ‘Miracle Field’, an inclusive and accessible field in the 150-acre park. Not only will Yancey build on the legacy this state-of-the-art tournament facility has become, recently named “Facility of the Year” by the Kentucky Recreation and Parks Society, but so will the rest of his exceptional staff. Yancey, his wife, and two sons are excited about the opportunity to relocate to the Elizabethtown community.
Yancey comes to Elizabethtown Sports Park with multiple years of experience in the sports management industry. He was the first full time Salesman at Ballparks of America, selling and bringing process to the new facility. Yancey then took over Director of Operations for a first full season where he developed and implemented standard operating procedures. After that, he led the sales and marketing strategies between the 2017 and 2018 seasons while taking over in the General Manager position where he developed key sales, marketing, and branding strategies that the facility still uses today.
