The "Oldest First Base Coach in Minor League Baseball," Art Silber was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, in the shadow of Ebbets Field. As a child he would walk his boyhood idol, Jackie Robinson, through the players' entrance of his hometown ballpark. Today, Silber wears No. 42 in honor of Robinson. As someone who wore the number prior to its retirement, Silber is one of only two people in all of professional baseball who is permitted to wear it.

Silber retired at age 55 as President/CEO of Sterling Bank in Baltimore, Maryland, and has been the team owner since 1990. Silber's two children, Lani and Seth, serve as team president and treasurer, respectively.

Management

Nick Hall joins Fredericksburg as the Executive Vice President and General Manager for the FredNats.

Nick got his debut 12 years ago into the sports world while working for the legendary basketball coach, Pat Summitt, as a student manager for the women's basketball team at the University of Tennessee. Upon graduation, he started as an intern for the Jackson Generals, the AA Affiliate of the Seattle Mariners and Arizona Diamondbacks.

Originally a mascot, Nick worked his way through the ranks over the last decade. In 2015, the Generals were named the league's Henry H. Moss Award Winner for Community involvement. Following the 2016 season, he was named General Manager of the Jackson Generals, becoming the youngest General Manager in the AA Southern League history. After winning two AA Southern League Championships in 2016 and 2018, along with 10 total years with the club, Nick moved to Amarillo, TX, to help lead the Amarillo Sod Poodles during their inaugural season. Once again, Nick accumulated another AA Championship, earning three league championships in the last four years, before moving to Fredericksburg.

The St. Louis native spends his downtime with his newly wed wife, Tabitha. Most importantly, Nick spends his off-season Saturdays yelling at a TV while attempting to cheer on the Tennessee Volunteers. Go Vols.
