LeCroy replaces Gary Cathcart who will have dual roles with the Nationals organization in 2011.  According to Byron Kerr of MASN, Carthcart will be a roving instructor for the Nationals in the Gulf Coast League and Hagerstown and then after the draft in June, he'll manage Auburn in the New York/Penn league.

The Potomac Nationals Vice President and General Manager Jonathan Griffith resigned in September and has been replaced by Josh Olerud.  Olerud was the General Manager of the Rockford RiverHawks for the last five seasons.
