"We are very honored to be the recipient of these prestigious awards," said Charlotte Knights Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer Dan Rajkowski.
On Friday, May 23rd Charlotte Knights Owner, Don Beaver and Executive Vice President, Dan Rajkowski celebrated "The Team that Built BB&T BallPark" by providing a picnic dinner and tickets to the game.
Knights Chief Operating Officer Dan Rajkowski made the announcement from the left-field concourse of BB&T Ballpark in uptown, as construction workers rolled out the field's new sod in the background.
"Our goals from the beginning for BB&T Ballpark have been to provide the Knights with a first-class Triple-A facility and to utilize this ballpark for community events and to bring national attention to our city," Rajkowski said.
Joining Rajkowski at the ballpark were Pat O'Connor, president and CEO of Minor League Baseball; Randy Mobley, president of the International League; and Rob Packard, vice president of marketing for Gildan Retail.
"We haven't done an economic impact study, but we will be looking at that," Rajkowski said. "We know that it's going to put people in hotel rooms that wouldn't normally be there. You're bringing in visiting teams that normally wouldn't be here, and the people that are coming here from around the country are going to be able to enjoy the amenities that this city has to offer."
The game will be televised live nationally on the NBC Sports Network beginning at 7 p.m.
"We expect that we'll sell it out, and we expect it to be a great experience and are excited to share that with this city," Rajkowski said.
Rajkowski said more events are planned for BB&T Ballpark.
"We're continuing to put packages together," he said.
"The teams assembled have proven expertise in their field and have been the core leaders of this project since its inception back in 2006," states Charlotte Knights VP/General Manager Dan Rajkowski.

"The Charlotte community really embraced this and we knew that they would," Knights Chief Operating Officer Dan Rajkowski told The Call recently.
"We had to get people to buy into it and it was important to paint a vision of what we were going to do - this is what baseball was going to be doing and what outside events were going to take place," Rajkowski said.
Rajkowski said that the Skeffington-led delegation to Charlotte "is made up of very bright people.

Knights Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President Dan Rajkowski started his pregame speech by saying to the fans, welcome to your house.
Charlotte resident Mike Crowther agreed with Rajkowski, saying BB&T Ballpark is what minor-league stadiums should be.
It is a different feel, Rajkowski said. But its different for my field staff when they come to work, its different when we come to work. And that isnt a knock by any means on the building we were in, in Fort Mill. There is just something special about the newness. And we have already sold out the first few nights, and the players are going to be playing in front of full houses every night, which changes the way you play the game.
Rajkowski has become a pro at opening stadiums. He helped the Double-A Tennessee Smokies build a ballpark around the turn of the century. He said the energy a new ballpark brings to a team helps in many ways.
I have been fortunate to have done this in Tennessee and remember it very fondly, he said. An online service of the Spartanburg Herald-Journal [cached]
"One of the underlying factors in what I see is the potential for us to get in on the ground floor with a major-league team that will be relocated," said Dan Rajkowski, the Zephyrs' vice president and general manager.
