President and General Manager Bob Wease

Bob Wease enters his 32nd season as President and General Manager of the Harrisonburg Turks. Over those years, he has developed strong relationships with college coaches across the country and gained their respect and trust to continuously send their players to Harrisonburg every summer. He recruits from top-level DI head coaches that once played for the Turks.

Wease has been involved in the business world his entire life in the Harrisonburg community. He has owned and operated Wease Auto for the last 45 years.

He has was active in coaching youth baseball and football teams through the recreation department and he was also the assistant baseball coach for one year at Harrisonburg High School.

He was a player-coach for many years in the local Rockingham County Baseball League. In 2012 Wease was inducted into the RCBL Hall of Fame. Wease is also in his 20th year as the head coach of the Harrisonburg Turks. He played in the Valley Baseball League with a number of different teams for 8 years. In 2016 Wease was inducted into the first class of the Valley Baseball League Hall of Fame as a player.

In 2020 when the Valley Baseball League season was canceled due to COVID, Wease was recruited to return to the Rockingham County League to help coach the Broadway Bruins. Wease used his connections from the players he had signed for the Turks from James Madison to bolster the roster. The Bruins had an outstanding season, winning the regular season with a 16-5 record and then winning the 2020 RCBL Championship. It was the first time Broadway had won a championship in 80 years. The Bruins standout from James Madison University, outfielder Chase Delauter collected multiple accolades by winning the Rookie of the Year, MVP, and Championship Series MVP for the season.

Bob is married to Teresa Miller Wease. The couple has 5 children and 9 grandchildren.

Operations Manager Teresa Wease

For many years Teresa Wease was happy just being known as the Turks Team Mom. She and her children ran the concession stand and greeted the Turks fans making sure they enjoyed coming to the games. As the years went on and the demands of running the team expanded, Teresa’s participation also increased. Eventually, it was necessary to find a title for her. Considering the wide variety of tasks, being tagged the Operations Manager made sense since she worked to make sure all the gears of the well-oiled Turks machine worked together. She is responsible for advertising and marketing the team, selling sponsorships, scheduling special events, creating Friday Family Fun Nights, developing the partnership with the Massanutten Regional Library Summer Reading Program, all game-day operations, concessions, and merchandise stands. Teresa values and cherishes all the amazing friendships that she and Bob have made over the last 32 years with #TurksNation players, their families, and our wonderful fans. Her pride and joy are her children and grandchildren. Spending time with them is her favorite thing to do.

PA Announcer Curt Dudley

Curt Dudley’s association with the Harrisonburg Turks organization has paralleled his entire professional career following graduation from Bridgewater College in 1983. This will be his 40th summer season with the team.

A native of Norfolk, Virginia, Dudley first served as the official scorekeeper for the Turks a month after earning his bachelor’s degree in business administration from Bridgewater. His first season of public address was in 1986 when he shared the microphone with another voice of the valley, Mike Schikman. He became the primary public address voice of the Turks one year later and has held that role ever since. He also served the Valley Baseball League as its chief statistician for a decade, helping the organization transition to the digital age with computer scorekeeping and an internet presence.

Dudley has worked in collegiate athletics since his first weeks on the Bridgewater campus in the fall of 1979. While a B.C. student, he was the Sports Information Director for the Eagles, and ultimately convinced college officials to hire him as the SID upon his graduation. It was not a full-time sports gig, however, he split his time as an Admissions Counselor. He moved full-time into the sports realm in the spring of 1988, becoming the SID for Coach Brad Babcock and the James Madison Dukes five years after they had appeared in the College World Series. Dudley also worked with other JMU teams throughout the years as their publicist and historian.

Dudley can be heard on broadcasts of JMU sports events on the JMU/Glo Fiber Radio Network on the internet video and audio source known as MadiZONE HD Sports Net, which is presented by the JMU Alumni Association. He has held the title of Director of Multimedia Communications for the Dukes since 2006. Dudley blends his years of knowledge and contacts into multiple methods of distributing information, with the goal of keeping fans, current students, and former Dukes engaged with the university. Some of those methods are also employed in keeping Turks fans informed. Dudley teaches at JMU in the Sports Communications minor and works closely every semester with a group of students who aspire to work in the sports industry.

Dudley received the 2018 JMU Unseen Hero Award recognizing his work efforts and his dedication outside of the public spotlight.

In July 2021, Curt was inducted into the Valley Baseball League Hall of Fame in recognition of his years of service and contribution to the VBL and the Harrisonburg Turks organization. The Turks are blessed to have such a talented professional and committed friend in Curt. 

Webcast Play-By-Play Broadcaster Shelton Moss

Shelton Moss returns to the broadcast microphone for the 2022 Turks season. Shelton most recently served as the Sports Information Director for Radford University baseball. A second-generation Hokie, he earned his degree in Sports Media and Analytics from Virginia Tech in 2021. He also built his broadcasting resume by calling Virginia Tech games for the student-driven 3304 Sports under the tutelage of broadcasting legend Bill Roth.

Shelton, born and raised, in Richmond Virginia, graduated from St. Christopher’s School. He considers himself a Twitter connoisseur and an advanced-numbers enjoyer. In his spare time, he is a diehard lover of D.C. sports.

We are pleased to have Shelton return to the Turks family and we look forward to a great season in the broadcast booth as he brings the action, sights, and sounds of the games into your living room to enjoy.
