Former Milwaukee Brewer farm hand to lead Dairy Daddies in 2024 campaign

DANVILLE, VA - After a record breaking launch, the Danville Dairy Daddies have taken the

world by storm. The team made a huge splash on social media and across the baseball

community, but now, the club turns their attention to their opponents in the Old North State

League. With an exciting and competitive twenty-five game slate ahead, McCreamy and the

Dairy Daddies are proud to announce the first manager in team history, Alex Moore.

After retiring from his playing career in 2016, Moore dipped his toe into the coaching realm

through strength training and wellness. Moore then returned to school and received his

Bachelor of Science in Meteorology from University of North Carolina-Charlotte. He now looks to

re-enter the baseball world by leading us into the new age of Danville baseball.

“I’m excited for this summer,” said Dairy Daddies’ skipper, Alex Moore. “It’s going to be a fun

one for all the players and fans in Danville.” Excited to join the team and unique brand, Moore

offers a cow pun of his own, “It’s going to be legen-wait for it-Dairy”

Prior to taking his first steps into coaching, Moore touted an impressive career at Lee University

before quickly being drafted in the 28th-round in the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft by the Milwaukee

Brewers. Moore spent four years in the Milwaukee farm system where he pitched and recovered from Labrum surgery with the Arizona League Brewers. After his time in the Arizona League, Moore was promoted to Brevard

County Manatees where he would finish his affiliated career. Shortly after, he joined the Joliet

Slammers of the independent Frontier League, where he would end his professional career.

Throughout his playing days, Moore fully immersed himself in both the on-field and front office

work priming him to one-day lead his own team.

“We fully believe and stand behind Alex,” said Assistant General Manager of Baseball

Operations, Jacob Lemanowicz. “He has been instrumental in our recruiting efforts providing

contacts and creating relationships that otherwise would not have been possible. His experience

and connections will provide an invaluable asset for our Dairy Daddies’ players for this summer

and beyond.

While our lights shine bright at the ballpark, Moore is no stranger to the spotlight. After his playing career, Moore utilized his meteorology degree to become the on-air meteorologist for KFXK Fox 51 and KETK NBC. On top of giving forecasts, he has had various roles in large-budget movies and television shows such as Bad Boys 4 and the MacGyver series.

Season tickets, corporate partnership opportunities, and hospitality outings are currently

available for the 2024 season. For more information, call the front office at 434-554-4487.
