Linscheid leaving Chico Outlaws, not Chico

He’s stepping down as baseball team president but sticking with CEPCO

After 12 years in professional baseball in Chico, Bob Linscheid (pictured) is stepping down as president of the Outlaws. The team, which won the Golden Baseball League championship last season, will mark his departure at Saturday night’s game (Aug. 30, 7 p.m.) at Nettleton Stadium.

“We all know when a change is needed,” Linscheid told the CN&R. “It’s time for me to start slowing down a little bit, which surprises the daylights out of my friends.”

Linscheid, who turns 55 next month, just got re-elected to the CSU Board of Trustees and appointed chairman of the Campus Planning Committee, which will oversee $10 billion in new construction systemwide. Though he’s placed his downtown residence on the market, he plans to remain in Chico heading up his PR firm, the Linscheid Co., and CEPCO (Chico Economic Planning Corp.), as well as volunteering through Chico Rotary.
