Missoula Osprey Executive Vice President Matt Ellis was chosen as the Pioneer League’s Executive of the Year during the general session of the Pioneer League’s Fall Meeting in Billings. 

This is the fifth time Ellis has been named Executive of the Year in professional baseball.  Previously, Ellis took home the Executive of the Year Award three times in the Pioneer League (Lethbridge 1994, Missoula 2002 & 2007) and once in the California League (Lancaster 1996).

“I am so proud of the organization and fan base we have built in Missoula.  I cannot say enough good things about our staff.  They work so hard everyday to give our fans the best experience possible,” said Ellis.

“This award goes to our entire staff, fans, players and community.  Our fans and our community are the best.  It is an honor and joy to come to work each day to make our show the best in Minor League Baseball.”

Ellis and the Osprey take community service seriously. He is currently a Board of Director for the Missoula Downtown Association, Missoula Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Parenting Place and Play Ball Missoula.  He is also a co-chair of the Downtown Master Plan Implementation Committee.

In the past year, Matt’s wife, Shelly, helped start the Epilepsy Association of Montana which is the first organization of its kind in the State of Montana to assist those suffering from Epilepsy.

The Osprey also boast one of the top elementary school reading programs in the country.  This spring over 4,000 area first to fifth graders read over 50,000 books in their “Hit the Books” program and earned over $90,000 in prizes from the Osprey.
