Managing General Partner of Wichita Baseball 2020
Growing up in a city just north of Boston Massachusetts, Lou Schwechheimer always had a love for baseball. He spent his days as a young kid playing baseball from dusk until dawn out in the street with his neighbors. It was at the age of 12 that he attended his first professional baseball game. Schwechheimer knew that’s where he belonged. He went on to attend the University of Massachusetts Amherst. One day Schwechheimer decided to pick up the phone and make the call to Fenway Park. It was from this phone call that his dreams came true and was offered an internship with the Boston Red Sox at the age of 19. Not long after, he found a home in Pawtucket, Rhode Island where he helped transform McCoy Stadium into where it is today. He stayed in Pawtucket from 1979 to 2015 before starting a new chapter in his life. Now, he is bringing Triple-A Baseball back to Wichita.
