Stabler Arena Director Retiring

Rich Fritz, director of the Stabler Arena in Bethlehem, Pa., for the past 30 years, has decided to hang up his coat and tie.

Fritz interviewed at Lehigh University in 1979 and got his position while the university’s 6,700-capacity building was still under construction.

He previously worked as an assistant GM at the Arizona State Fair and its Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Fritz’s last day is Dec. 4.
