Felicia Pisarz / MicroMemphis Reporter
Hi, I’m Felicia Pisarz, a senior Journalism major at the University of Memphis. Baseball is a major part of my life. My father and I would watch almost every Yankees game we could and attend games at Yankee Stadium at least once a week.
Much like baseball I cannot remember a time when horses were not important in my life. My father used to lead me around on our little Shetland pony named Sis. I now compete in Hunter/Jumper and dressage shows around the.
My ultimate goal when I graduate is to be able to incorporate my love of baseball into my career. I have done work with the Staten Island Yankees, Memphis Red Birds and www.MLB.com. I would like to write about baseball or do play-by-play on the radio for baseball. Follow me on Twitter @fpisarz.
