It was a show of power several years ago when the Major League Baseball (MLB) players ' association went on strike in September just before the World Series started.

Everybody has an event in their own work life that has been hell, but it makes them a stronger employee. Personally I have had to plan out multiple events while working for the Atlanta Braves, therefore I see that I could fit the requirements for the position of being a marketing manager for the Atlanta Falcons.

My favorite team in the Major League Baseball league is the Chicago Cubs because my family has been Cubs fans for years.

I love baseball. One of the best things I have done is I saw my favorite team, the Cardinals, play against the Reds at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati. It was the first game I ever went to and I can remember it like it was yesterday. We had front row seats right above the Cardinals dugout. It was amazing to see all of my favorite players right in front of my face. I could have sat there and watched them play forever.
