Casey Walkup, who has been with the Wingnuts’ front office for three seasons and who served as the operations manager of the National Baseball Congress this year, has resigned.

Walkup oversaw the NBC World Series after Jerry Taylor left the post following the 2011 tournament. He is taking a position with P&E Building Services, a company owned by Walkup’s father.

NBC president and Wingnuts general manager Josh Robertson said the replacement for Walkup will be decided a group that includes city officials. The city has owned the NBC World Series since 2007.

"This would be the perfect time, with Casey leaving, for the city to get involved with the tournament," Robertson said.

Walkup’s replacement will be the seventh operations manager of the NBC since 1994. In the first 59 years of the tournament, only Hap Dumont and Larry Davis held that title or its equivalent.
