The South Coast League introducied Deanna Davis as the Peanuts new general manager Wednesday.

Davis started working as intern with the Frederick Keys of the Carolina League and six years later she was the assistant general manager.

Davis' promotions were a big reason Frederick has twice led the Carolina League in attendance.

She faces a big challenge with the Peanuts and the South Coast League which has had its share of financial troubles and announced this week that the league will play with just four teams this season.

Deanna Davis said "It is do able. The promotion schedule will probably be out in the next couple of weeks. I already have ideas. i have been planning everything the past two weeks already. I pretty much have a head start on the game already."  

The South Georgia Peanuts are scheduled to open the season may 15th in Macon. The home opener is slated for May 22nd.

Former peanuts general manager Keith Michlig was named sports information director at Georgia Southwestern on Tuesday.
