Baltimore Blast general manager and president Kevin Healey is leaving the franchise to become president and minority owner of the Harrisburg Heat.

Healey has been with the Blast for 20 years. He also coached the team from 1998-2002.  The Blast won 9 championships while he was with the club.

Healey's move comes after his son, Pat, retired as a Blast player to become the Heat's general manager and head coach.

Both the Blast and Heat play in the Major Arena Soccer League.
