Little League® International is pleased to announce the elevation of Michael Jacobs to a Marketing Account Manager, effective as of March 13, 2023.
“Since joining our staff almost three years ago, Michael has done a nice job to help develop our partnerships, provide memorable experiences to everyone on site at the Little League Baseball World Series, and contribute to making Little League better at every level of the program,” said Kevin Feinberg, Little League Director of Partnership Marketing. “We are proud to provide Michael with this new leadership role and look forward to working with him to enhance our partnership offerings and write the next chapter in the Little League story.”
Mr. Jacobs first joined the Little League team in April 2020 as a Marketing Account Executive and has since helped manage relationships with key partners, including Gatorade, Ball Park Buns, Sports Connect, and more. During his nearly three years with the marketing and sponsorship team, Mr. Jacobs has also played a key role in the management of the On-Deck, Batter Up, and Summer Offers promotions, the annual Little League Sponsor Summit, and on-site activations in the Little League World Series Fan Zone. In his new role, Mr. Jacobs will assist with managing the day-to-day relationships with more of Little League’s official partners and oversee the operations of the additional Account Executives on the Little League team.
“I am thankful for this opportunity to grow my skills and contribute in even more ways to help the Little League program continue to grow and thrive,” said Mr. Jacobs. “I look forward to working with our team to develop our relationships, enhance our offerings, and most importantly provide a memorable Little League experience for children and families all around the world each year.”
Prior to joining the Little League team, Mr. Jacobs spent time as a Program Assistant and Volunteer Coordinator for the Ronald McDonald House of Danville, worked as a front office intern for the Altoona Curve for the 2018 season, and spent time as a student worker and intern for the Bloomsburg University and Lock Haven University Athletic Departments. In addition, he also spent two summers as an intern assisting with a sponsor activation in the Fan Zone during both the 2015 and 2016 Little League Baseball World Series.
Mr. Jacobs graduated from Lock Haven University in 2017 with a degree in Sport Administration and was a two-sport athlete at Milton Area High School where he served as the graduation commencement speaker.
