LEAVING THE PACK: In Green Bay, Richard Ryman reported the Packers "changed shareholder services organizations" as of Thursday, "replacing Wells Fargo with Broadridge Corporate Issuer Solutions." Packers VP & General Counsel Ed Policy said that there was "nothing wrong with the job Wells Fargo did, but Broadridge allowed the Packers to choose the specific services they wanted." Initially, the team "considered taking all the services in-house, but decided there were some things they wouldn’t have the expertise to do well" (GREENBAYPRESSGAZETTE.com, 4/4).
RAY OF HOPE: In Tampa, Marc Tompkin noted Rays mascot Raymond was photographed during Wednesday's game against the Orioles "holding a sign the team called inappropriate and others labeled insensitive: a 'Rays to-do' list that had '1. Steve Irwin' crossed off, with a World Series berth next." The Rays on Thursday issued an apology for a "lapse in judgment" (TAMPA BAY TIMES, 4/5).
