My name is Stephanie Wittenrich and I am the Office Administrator for the Genesee Rapids Baseball Team. I live on Rushford Lake with my husband, Chad and two children, Kennedi and Kyle. I am very excited to be working with the Genesee Rapids and see where God is going to lead us. I have been involved in sports my whole life and have a very competitive nature, but I am very excited that we are able to use sports as a means to witness to others. I look forward to seeing you and your family at our games this summer, cheering on the team!
