The Amory, Miss., native is in his second year with the AirHogs and his fourth in the American Association after two years as the VP/GM of the Shreveport-Bossier Captains and three years in the United League, where he served as the league president in 2007 and 2008 after spending the league's inaugural season in 2006 as assistant to the president.
In his role as United League president, Brasfield oversaw ULB operations and made sure by-laws and salary caps were followed. He also supervised 27 player sales to Major League organizations, including two eventual big leaguers, pitcher Edwar Ramirez of the New York Yankees and catcher Robinson Cancel of the New York Mets.
Brasfield also ran league-wide marketing and promotions initiatives helping both on the concessions and in-game areas as well as the distribution of merchandise and selling tickets. Operating at the league's franchise in Edinburg, Texas, Brasfield also oversaw stadium operations there, running a successful concessions operation as well as negotiating some major renovations to the stadium.
Throughout his career, Brasfield has been a dynamic executive, looking to constantly improve all areas of his teams as well as maximizing revenue and fan support in the area.
After leading the Captains to the 2010 American Association crown, Brasfield's role in Southern Independent Baseball, LLC expanded when he was named VP/GM of the AirHogs, while continuing on as VP of the Captains.
Before his run as the ULB president, Brasfield was a successful general manager for two other teams in the southeastern United States. He was the VP and GM of the Jackson (Miss.) Senators of the Central League from 2002-05, and was GM of the Alexandria (La.) Aces of the Texas-Louisiana and then Central Leagues from 1994-2001.
Both of those teams had traditions of winning when Brasfield was in charge. The Aces won league championships in 1997 and 1998 and Brasfield won the TX-LA League's Executive of the Year award in 1996, and the Aces were named their league's Organization of the Year in 1996 and 2001. In Jackson, the Senators won the CBL title in 2003 and Organization of the Year in 2002.
The 1984 graduate of the University of Mississippi began his career in baseball as an account executive with the Chattanooga (Tenn.) Lookouts, then the Double-A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners, in 1985, before moving up to General Manager of the Medicine Hat (Alberta, Canada) Blue Jays (Rookie League), and stints as Director of Food and Beverage for the Durham (N.C.) Bulls, Tidewater (Va.) Tides, and Lookouts.
