Rocket City Trash Pandas 2022

For the first time in my career, I stayed with a baseball team through the offseason and into a new season for the Rocket City Trash Pandas in 2022. The 2022 season was one of many highs for the Trash Pandas as the team won both the first and second half championshps in route to an 81-57 record nad the first playoff appearance in team history. 


Below are some of my works for the team before, during, and following an incredible 2022 season. 

After most home games, I would interview a Trash Pandas player or Manager Andy Schatzley for distribution to local media and for our internal social media.
