Ams extend Sandy's contract

The Tri-City Americans announced today that they have extended the contract of Brian Sandy, senior vice president of business, through the 2010-2011 Western Hockey League season.

“Since joining our organization in 2005 from the (Portland) Trail Blazers, Brian has done an exceptional job coordinating our sales staff, implementing our marketing strategies and promoting our club throughout the Columbia Basin,” general manager Bob Tory said in a news release.

Sandy was GM of minor-league baseball’s Tri-City Dust Devils during the 2000 and 2001 seasons in between two stints with Portland’s NBA franchise.
