WWU student lands internship with baseball team

A William Woods University student is a clubhouse management
intern for a minor league baseball team in Mobile, Ala.,
for the 2012 baseball season.

The intern, Taylor Clark, is a junior at WWU,
majoring in sports
management, with the ultimate goal of a career in professional
sports management.  He is the son of Jim
and Lisa Clark of Fulton.
 
The team he is
interning with, the Mobile BayBears, were the 2011 champions of the Southern League and
are a Double-A affiliate of the Arizona
Diamondbacks.
 
Clark, whose first day
was April 25, will reside in Mobile and
work at the team’s Hank
Aaron Stadium until
the end of the season in mid-September.
He will learn how a
professional baseball clubhouse operates while assisting
clubhouse managers in daily
operations and attending to the players, coaches and staff of the baseball team.
 
After finding the internship through Professional Baseball
Employment Opportunities, he went through several phone interviews before being
offered the position.
 
Clark said, “The best part of the internship is by far all
the interaction with the coaches and players; becoming friends with future major league
baseball players. It’s amazing being around professional athletes all day.”
