“Donnie is an essential part of our organization,” Mallards general manager Samantha Rubin said. “We value his experience and leadership, and we know the players do too.”

Scott joined the Mallards in 2013, leading the team to a Northwoods League Championship in his first season. In 2014, he managed a team that featured New York Mets star Pete Alonso.

“I can’t wait to get back up to Madison,” Scott said. “We’ve got a promising group of guys coming in next year.”

The Mallards are set to open the season at the Duck Pond on May 29 against the Wausau Woodchucks at 4:05 p.m. CT.
