Taylor Green @ MiLB Field Program
June 4-9, 2018
E-mail from Taylor Green (June 10, 2018) - I just returned from the program [2018 MiLB FIELD Program] which took place at Historic Dodgertown in Vero Beach! It was AMAZING! I gained so much insight into Minor League Baseball and really got a chance to begin to foster authentic relationships with so many industry professionals.
I got a chance to go behind the scenes with the Daytona Tortugas (we got to pull the tarp!) and the Palm Beach Cardinals and have the chance to attend the Winter Meetings in December. Part of the program included a group project for a specific team and market. My group decided to target Millennials in the Austin metro area so we created an app for the Round Rock Express (we won!)
This program reaffirmed that I do want to work in diversity and inclusion in sport. I am more motivated than ever to seize any many opportunities as possible and would love to see more UF students apply to the program next year. I would be more than happy to share any information that I have, you can follow the hashtag #MiLBFIELD on LinkedIn as well.
