USA! A new era for Bobcats baseball

The New Hampshire Bobcats are proud to announce that Kevin Gray has been named general manager of Ultimate Sports Academy in Manchester effective immediately. Gray and his partners Jeff and Dina Montembeault take over management of the multi-sports complex, which has hosted a variety of teams and events since opening in 2012. Renovations and facility improvements already have commenced in preparation for the busy winter season. USA plans to add one more indoor workout area (60-x-40), equipped with two more more batting cages and a state-of-the-art hitting system with data capture and MLB-like simulation.

"This is an exciting time for USA and young athletes in the area. This partnership will only strengthen the programs at USA and take player development to a new level," said David Duragano, a founder and owner of USA. "Kevin has a proven track record and his organization and skillset fit the needs of USA perfectly. Looking forward to our future with Kevin and his support staff at the helm."

Since launching their organization in 2012, the Bobcats have expanded to nine teams for the spring season and eight teams for fall. Gray has coached various age levels in recent years and is currently the Bow High School junior varsity baseball head coach. He is also an associate scout for the Seattle Mariners.

"Our passion is teaching baseball with a focus on long-term development. This relationship is a win-win for everyone involved," Gray said. "Thank you to the founders of USA for this opportunity."

The staff at USA has plans for sports camps and clinics, in addition to special events such as a New Year's Eve party with games and prizes. For more information, contact USA at 603-782-4949; email
