I am committed to the Mohawk Valley and will continue to build and foster relationships with our fans, sponsors, current and past host families, community leaders, and our ball players. The Mohawk Valley has been nothing but supportive of the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs and I am proud and excited to own this great team and work tirelessly to bring  the fans and our supporters a championship," said Heiser.
