Baseball Hits a Home Run for Business Development

Play ball for a small business making big impacts in York: the York Revolution.

York Revolution President Eric Menzer explains that the Revs hire hundreds of seasonal staff, purchase products from local businesses, support hundreds of nonprofits and provide resources for family, corporate and community events at PeoplesBank Park.

“The construction of the stadium was one of the first major investments in Downtown York that spurred the current wave of revitalization, and it has been a major draw for visitors ever since,” says Silas Chamberlin, CEO of Downtown Inc. “Perceptually, the stadium and Revs provide many people with their first Downtown York experience. The stadium is a landing place from which they can gradually venture to other parts of the downtown.”

“Having a thriving urban environment is a tremendous tool for recruiting professionals. The York Revolution contributes to the recreational amenities York County offers,” says Kevin Schreiber, president of the York County Economic Alliance. “The Revs have a strong pipeline with institutions such as York College, which gives young professionals a start on their careers and keeps them      in York.”

Anne Druck, president of the York County Convention & Visitors Bureau (YCCVB), notes, “The York Revolution helps demonstrate York County’s vibrancy to visitors from individual leisure and group travelers to the meetings and sports markets.”

“We’re preparing to host the NCAA Division III Mid-Atlantic Regional Baseball Championship for the third year in York, something we couldn’t do without our partnership with the Revolution,” adds YCCVB Director of Sales Laura Gurreri.
