MASTER OF SCIENCE IN SPORT MANAGEMENT 
GW STUDENTS PLAY ROLE  IN NATS WORLD SERIES WIN!
Fortunately, I had the chance to work for the Washington Nationals during their unbelievable journey to becoming World Champions. I assisted the communications and PR department where I handed out credentials and vouchers to media personnel. Also, we distributed materials such as game notes, transcripts, or lineups to the media. My favorite part of the job was handling the microphone for press conferences. It was very surreal to see the players right in front of me in the press conference room. I genuinely enjoyed every minute of working the home games and this was a great experience for me as it showed me how a baseball team operates and how they cooperate with MLB in order to make the game better. This truly was an incredible experience and this memory will be very special in the future.

Ryan Riffenburgh shares his experience with the Washington National: 
I was lucky enough to spend the whole season working for the Nats in their Promotions and Events department. 
This role was a lot of planning and game day logistics for the Nationals theme nights such as Marvel Day and Star Wars Day and other big promotions. During the playoffs, I was primarily responsible for handling the in-stadium musical entertainment (DJs and bands). Our department is very small which gave me the opportunity to get hands-on experience.
I've learned a lot about what goes into the whole process and even had the opportunity to pitch my own ideas for future events or promotions. The season was definitely full of ups and downs but they managed to come out on top in the end! 
Students In the Sport Media and Communications course had the special opportunity to speak with George Bodenheimer, former president of ESPN, on October 31. Jonathan Lakra, a first-year student in Master’s program, asks the question.
