Nova Newcomer has been a baseball fan for as long as she can remember. Her love of baseball started with Beaver baseball games at Civic Stadium with her dad, then it was catching for her Powell and Parkrose Little League teams and even four years of scrappy high school competition. Her first job was at the souvenir stand working for the Beavers in 1993 and to this day she still says that job earned her every subsequent job she’s ever had, including her 1996 stint with the Portland Rockies as an intern for their daily radio show. Nova graduated from Portland State University (PSU) in 1999 with a degree in Political Science, where she worked in the Athletic Department as a media relations assistant, including work as a statistician and Public Address Announcer for home baseball games. Nova worked for adidas Group in the US and internationally and has held posts with the Center for Women’s Leadership at PSU and Portland Energy Conservation, Inc. Most recently, she owned her own business as a consultant partnering with Harrelson Group on transformational projects with businesses, regional agencies, and non-profits. Serving as Executive Director fulfills her personal passion to bring the dream of playing baseball and the important connections it creates to more of our region’s youth. Nova has a son and daughter who both play Little League.
