The Lakewood BlueClaws today announced that a newly formed group has reached an agreement to acquire the operating interest of the minor league baseball team.

Shore Town Baseball is headed up by Art Martin and local investors Bob Tamashunas and Bill Luby who are both residents of Rumson. Martin was previously the CEO of Mandalay Baseball Properties which during its existence owned and operated nine minor league franchises. “This opportunity with the BlueClaws is certainly very exciting for all of us,” said Martin who added, “our ownership group is made up of people who love the game of baseball, have extensive experience in owning minor league baseball franchises, and bring local knowledge and commitment to the table.”

Shore Town Baseball is acquiring the Phillies Class “A” team from American Baseball Ventures who have operated the successful minor league club since its inception in 2001. Co-owner Joe Finely said, “our nearly two decades with the BlueClaws were gratifying and enjoyable in every way and we wish the team, fans and sponsors nothing but the best.”

The BlueClaws open a four-game series tonight at FirstEnergy Park against the Hickory Crawdads.
