Minor League Baseball reaches out to WSSU students

Pat O'Conner speaks with WSSU students

Pat O’Conner, president of Minor League Baseball (MiLB), will be at Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) on Thursday, April 20, to talk with students about careers and internships in professional sports.

The event, sponsored by WSSU’s Department of Health, Physical Education and Sports Studies, included a presentation from O’Conner and a question-and-answer session.

“In order to be a dynamic leader in sport and entertainment, we know how important it is to actively engage the next level of diverse leaders through targeted outlets such as these, showing the many opportunities that exist in Minor League Baseball,” O’Conner said.

MiLB is reaching out to students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) through its Fostering Inclusion through Education and Leadership (FIELD), a program to increase diversity in the front offices of MiLB’s 160 clubs.
