My experience as an intern for Crew West Inc. has been amazing thus far. Spring training is here and that means the ESPN is in town along with MLB Network and other networks covering the upcoming baseball season from different facilities across the valley. I’ve had the opportunity to attend shoots in a variety of different locations and see what it takes to produce a professional piece. It’s great to see so many different people from all over the country come together and collaborate so well and all in the name of baseball! It takes quite the team effort to set everything up and have it come together, even if it’s only for a couple hours . As a student, I am fortunate to have this opportunity to work with such dedicated professionals on a regular basis. It’s great to see what it’s like “behind the scenes” so to speak. There are so many talented people who team up and work together in a way that’s sort of effortless. Sports are one aspect of journalism that I am passionate about and the fact that I have this chance to be among some of the best is incredible. Whether it’s with a national network team or with my colleagues and peers, the experience is unbelievable. I get to be there in the action and be able to contribute to the process of conducting an important and essential piece of work. I hope the progress remains consistent as spring training continues!
