The Lansing Lugnuts play in the Midwest League of professional baseball in Lansing, Michigan.  Bay City native Nick Brzezinski has been moving up the executive chain for this Midwest League team during his 10 years with the team.   Nick is the Assistant General Manager of the Toronto Blue Jays affiliate in the Class A League that plays 13 other teams in the midwest part of the United States.

A 1999 Bay City All Saints graduate and Central Michigan University graduate has had a lifelong interest in professional sports.  Nick started his career in sports management with the Saginaw Spirit in the Ontario Hockey League for 1 1/2 years before making the jump to Minor League Baseball.   Nick is very passionate about baseball and this was a natural fit for him to have a day job all around baseball.   Over the past 10 years Nick has held almost every position within the Lugnuts organization. 

Nick someday would like to be with a MLB club in a management capacity.   However, until that time comes he will continue to work with the Blue Jays affiliate down in Lansing, MI.  In a recent interview Nick talked about this 2013 season.  "Even thou the team is down this season we are up in attendance and drawing sellout crowds on promotional nights that include fireworks and many give-a-ways during the season.''    "After tonight we will only have 10 games left in the season and still have much merchandise to sell before the end of the season."

Brzezinski has been following baseball since a very young age making and planning family trips across the country to see MLB games as they travel.    Nick had a brother who played College Baseball here in Michigan and played himself on a MHSAA State Championship team while at Bay City All Saints.   So getting involved in baseball was second nature for the Bay City native.  

Having known Nick for almost 15 years I can see only bright things in Nick's future in Professional Baseball.   The time and hours that he puts into his job to make sure things are running smoothly each and every game. 

Over the years has given Nick the opportunity to meet many famous retired baseball players at the Stadium.   Just recently Al Avila Detoit Tigers G.M was in town to talk with a few of the Lugnuts executives.  He is networking with all of the other teams executive staff.
