About

best-manning my first wedding.

William Chase

I graduated as a Communications Major in 2013 from Longwood University. When I started college, we were associated with the Facebook game Farmville. Now we have illustriously been attached to the name Norwood thanks to VP Mike Pence.

In 2013 I interned with the Richmond Flying Squirrels and worked at State Farm after that.

Then, I worked as the Media Relations & Marketing Intern with the Augusta GreenJackets in 2016. You can read all about that here.

Some of the notables from my time in Augusta, Georiga:

  • Witnessed first no-hitter July 17th — Jake McCasland vs Delmarva Shorebirds
  • I made my first radio appearance
  • I was interviewed for a book
  • Baseball historian and columnist Lamar Garrard wrote about me in an article — GreenJackets and fans honor the military
  • I drove Miguel Gomez to the airport last summer when he got called up to High-A San Jose. This is him in July getting his first MLB hit.

Experiences

  • Running press box
  • Managing social media accounts 
  • Writing press releases and media advisories
  • Update and edit GreenJackets website (Upload content, HTML)
  • Creating eNewsletters via Constant Contact
  • Interviews for our PlayBall program and website stories
  • Creating daily stat packs for our manager, coaches, fans and radio broadcasters
  • Facilitating lineup card exchanges
  • Driving players to the airport following promotions and demotions
  • Interviewed former Augusta GreenJackets manager, and World Series Champion, Roberto Kelly, Los Angeles Dodger Charlie Culberson (who went on to clinch the NL West with a walk-off home run Sept. 25), former MLBer Tyler Colvin, Rick Hader aka Myron Noodleman
  • Assisted MLB Network Radio, MiLB.com, and local media outlets with conducting interviews — Clay RapadaGrant WatsonBryan ReynoldsMichael ConnollyJake McCaslandMiguel Gomez

I also went to Nashville, Tennessee for the annual MLB Winter Meetings.

It's stupid perfect how I appear to have long hair when I, in fact, don't. It just happened to be perfect placement in front of someone who does.

When I'm not appearing in the background of popular TV networks, best-manning weddings, or taking pictures from my airplane seat,
