Montgomery Biscuits mourn death of former assistant general manager
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Montgomery Biscuits are mourning the loss of a man who is credited with playing a “pivotal role” in building the baseball team’s brand in its early years.
“We join the rest of the Minor League Baseball community in mourning the loss of Pat Day,” the Biscuits said in a social media post Wednesday.
Day was the Biscuits’ assistant general manager, joining the team in 2003 ahead of its 2004 debut in Montgomery. He left Montgomery in 2007 to join the Lansing Lugnuts as that team’s general manager.
“Pat was the most open, honest and coachable employee I’ve ever known,” said Sherrie Myers, founder and former owner of the Montgomery Biscuits and co-owner of the Lugnuts. “Over the last 20 years, he established himself as a great leader who always remained grounded and centered on others. He was like a son to me and will be forever missed in Minor League Baseball.”
According to an article posted to the Minor League Baseball website, Day died Friday after suffering a heart attack at his home in Arizona. He was 47.
Day is survived by his wife Erica and daughters Emerson and Harper.
A Celebration of Life is planned on Zoom and is set to be held on Thursday.
