Brittany WhitleyStevenson Business Communication major and women's basketball senior forward Brittany Whitley was fortunate to grab a Ballpark Operations Internship with the Baltimore Orioles in January, 2020. According to GoMustangSports.com, "A simple search on Teamwork Online led her to the opportunity to work with the professional baseball team." The senior was one of several featured in an article on Stevenson's athletics website.

Even during her basketball season, Whitley was going to the ballpark three to four times a week preparing for the 2020 baseball season. However, because of changes wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic, her duties switched to meeting with the ballpark operations team virtually three to four times a week.

The senior hopes to begin a career in sports PR and communications after she graduates. She told GoMustangSports.com, “Helping athletes or even teams/organizations with public awareness or statements or marketing through social media is definitely a place I want to be a part of... I think what goes on behind the scenes to create a successful game day is so exciting and I know I want to be a part of that magic.”

The senior was thrilled with her internship, noting that it solidified her decision to work in sports. Though COVID-19 ended her internship, she still believes the hands-on experience leading up to MLB Opening Day was invaluable.
