Croskey named team minority owner

Eastern Contra Costa County businessman Wolfgang Croskey has invested in the Pittsburg Diamonds and will be the team’s minority owner and managing partner, the Diamonds announced today.

Croskey is the president of Croskey Real Estate in Pittsburg, a 71-year-old family-run company that has been a leader in the business community for many years.

“As our organization grows and matures, we are very happy to have Wolfgang taking a leadership position,” said Khurram Shah, owner of the Diamonds. “We will be taking full advantage of his marketing expertise and his local knowledge.”

The Diamond’s new general manager said today’s announcement is really a dream come true.

“I am thrilled to become part of the Diamonds’ organization just as they are becoming an important part of the fabric of our community,” said Croskey. “We are bringing professional baseball and affordable family entertainment to everyone in East County.”

The Diamonds are currently in second place in the Pacific Association, an independent minor league baseball conference with teams also in Vallejo, San Rafael and Sonoma.
