Triple Crown Staff Spotlight -- Chris Folk

May 31, 2024

Name: Chris Folk


Job Title: Baseball Event Director




Hometown: Omaha, NE


Family: Married to Jenna for nearly 8 years. We were blessed with our first child, a daughter (Raelynn), in 2022. My parents are Tom and Kathy, and I have two younger siblings, Kimberly (husband Bryan) and Matthew (wife Kelsey).


College attended: Missouri State University (graduated 2011), Entertainment Management.


Sports background: Growing up I played primarily played baseball. Over the years there are many games, events, experiences and trips that stick out in my mind, however one of my proudest and memorable moments was throwing a perfect game including14 K's.


Hobbies: I'm a Kansas City Royals fan. I love spending time with family and friends. I enjoy summer evenings catching Omaha Storm Chaser (minor league) games and trips to local breweries. In the fall, finding nights to be around a firepit watching a sporting event outside. One of my most favorite things I've gotten to experience is the opportunity to be a Dad to Raelynn – she is a major joy in our lives.


Favorite trip: In July of2020 we took a family trip to Mackinac Island in Michigan.  Having previously lived in Michigan, our family had made a handful of trips to Mackinac in the late 90s and early 2000s. However, having all eight of us (my parents, siblings and our spouses) there was an amazing trip together.


How did you become associated with Triple Crown?: I started working with the Triple Crown SlumpBuster in 2005 as part of the field crew for Millard Athletic Association (now Millard United Sports). Over the next 13 years I had the opportunity to help execute events in Omaha, South Carolina and Texas before first joining the TC team full-time in 2018.


What intrigues you the most about Triple Crown?: Building memorable events and experiences for teams and their families across the sports that Triple Crown operates. Knowing that what we do has the power to create life-long memories for our customers is very special.
