Noontime Sports Podcast: Nick Parson (Oakland Athletics Public Relations Seasonal Assistant)
The story of Nick Parson is an interesting one.
The former Wheaton College (MA) graduate, who double-majored in Political Science and African American Diaspora Studies, as well as minored in Modern European History, has spent the past two-year pursuing a career in baseball media relations. And despite not having a communications degree, Parson has utilized the various skills he obtained at Wheaton to help him experience successful stints with the Bourne Braves, Hickory Crawdads and Lehigh Valley IronPigs.
In February of 2012, Parson landed a public relations seasonal assistant position with the Oakland Athletics, and discussed his role with the ball club, as well as his various duties on Wednesday’s Noontime Sports the Podcast.
