Earlier this week, students in the upper school’s CareerConnect program visited Oracle Park in San Francisco for a look into careers in professional sports. The students received a 90-minute tour of the park and its facilities, including the visitor locker room and batting cages. They learned about the history of the Giants franchise, viewed the team’s collection of World Series trophies and got to walk on the field.
Students also attended a presentation on careers in pro sports by Giants chief technology officer Bill Schlough, which detailed the nine branches of pro sports administration. Schlough also answered questions from students and showed them the Gotham Club and Cloud Club VIP lounges.
“I thought Mr. Schlough’s presentation on different career paths was really informative and opened my mind about career opportunities in sports,” said junior Aeliya Grover.
