HOPPERS PRESIDENT AND GENERAL MANAGER DONALD MOORE NAMED TO GUILFORD COUNTY SPORTS HALL OF FAME, ADDING TO HIS AWARD WINNING YEAR

(GREENSBORO, NC) Greensboro Grasshoppers President and General Manager
Donald Moore has recently been named as one of the 13 new inductees to the
Guilford County Sports Hall of Fame.

Donald is a lifetime Guilford County resident and has always been a sports
advocate for the community. He has created several college scholarship funds
including the Bill Lee Memorial Scholarship and the Charlie Harville
Memorial Scholarship. He currently sits on the board of The Bryan Family
YMCA, Downtown Greensboro, Inc. and is President-Elect of the Greensboro
Sports Council. Moore also chaired the Little Four Invitational from
1999-2003 and made it the largest, most successful high school basketball
tournament in North Carolina. Over $450,000 was raised for the tournament
under his direction.

A graduate of Page High School and North Carolina State University, Moore
has had an award winning year, also garnering the Unsung Community Hero
Award and Father of the Year Award.

The Unsung Community Hero Award is presented annually by the Bryan
Foundation in recognition of individuals that have made significant
contributions to the community, but whose good works are not widely
recognized.

The Father of the Year Awards are presented by the Greater Greensboro Area
Father¹s Day Council, the local branch of a national organization which
helps to identify and honor fathers who have demonstrated the ability to
balance their personal lives to serve as a role model for their children
while making a positive difference in their community. This year will mark
the fourth year this event has been held in the Greensboro area. Moore will
be presented with the award by the American Diabetes Association at a gala
on Friday, June 11 in the Grandover Resort and Conference Center.

Under Moore¹s leadership the Grasshoppers have welcomed over 2.1 million
fans in their first five seasons, becoming the only Class A team in the
history of Minor League Baseball to draw over 400,000 fans and grow its
attendance four straight years in a new ballpark.

The Hoppers are back for a three-game homestand beginning Thursday, June 10
against the Savannah SandGnats. For ticket information, please contact the
Grasshoppers Box Office at 336.268.2255 or online at www.gsohoppers.com.
