QuakesMatt Blankenheim has been hired as the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes Vice President of Operations and Assistant General Manager, the team announced Tuesday.

Blankenheim joins Rancho Cucamonga following a two-year stint with the Fresno Grizzlies of the Pacific Coast League.

"I'm very excited to join the staff and I'm looking forward to helping continue the success the Quakes have achieved throughout the years," Blankenheim said. "I truly appreciate this opportunity to advance and continue to learn the business of professional baseball."

A native of Pine Grove, Blankenheim graduated from the University of California-Davis in 2004 with a degree in communications. He led the Aggies with a .359 batting average as a senior and began his executive career as a public relations intern with the Sacramento River Cats that summer.

While in Fresno Blankenheim oversaw production of the club's media guide and also managed the game day staff.

"I'm very pleased to add Matt to our staff and I'm confident that he will be a great asset to the organization," Quakes General Manager Gerard McKearney said. "Having worked with Matt for the last two years I've seen his dedication and enthusiasm first-hand and I know the rest of the staff will enjoy working with him."
