From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

The popular face of the Double-A Richmond Flying Squirrels, Todd “Parney” Parnell, will step away from his position as day-to-day operations chief at the end of this season.

Parnell, 57, is working his 34th year in the minor league baseball industry and has been with the Flying Squirrels since the Double-A franchise came to town for the 2010 season. Lou DiBella, the managing general partner and president of the Flying Squirrels, referred to the ebullient Parnell as a “force of nature,” and Parnell is universally respected as one of the premier minor league baseball executives.

Parnell, the franchise’s CEO, on Wednesday said he will remain a Richmond-area resident and with the Flying Squirrels as an advisor in a part-time capacity. But upon completion of this season, he will not be the franchise supervisor. That job will go to Ben Rothrock, who is vice president and general manager, and a pair of assistant GMs, Ben Terry and Anthony Oppermann.
