This is in less than 20 mins… From Joey Giaimo ’11:
Former Major League Baseball Player, Pro-Scout, recent Wesleyan football coach, and current Minor League Manager Rico Brogna is coming to speak at Wesleyan on Tuesday, February 2nd. Brogna spent nine seasons in the major leagues with Philadelphia, Detroit, Boston, Atlanta and the New York Mets. He has been a scout for the Arizona Diamondbacks, worked as a volunteer football coach at Wesleyan University, was a minor league field coordinator for the Diamondbacks in 2009, and was just selected as the next manager of the Diamondbacks Double-A affiliate, the Mobile BayBears in Mobile, AL.
Coach Rico brings a wealth of knowledge from his days as a player and as a scout. If you are interested in following in the footsteps of people like Jed Hoyer (recently hired GM of the San Diego Padres Wesleyan Class of 1996), Eric Mangini (Cleveland Browns Head Coach Class of 1994), and Bill Belichick (New England Patriots Head Coach Class of 1975) in the sports business world – then Coach Rico Brogna can give you some great insight into how professional organizations are run behind the scenes and what it takes to succeed in the industry to become the next executive of a professional team from Wesleyan.
The talk will start at 7:30 P.M. on Tuesday, February 2nd in Delta Kappa Epsilon’s main room. Please contact Joe Giaimo ’11 at jgiaimo(at)wesleyan(dot)edu for more information. Sandwiches and drinks will be provided.
