Friday Flashback: Sara Grasmon

11/30/2012 9:40 AM -

Sara Grasmon spent two seasons, 2009-10, working with the Kansas City T-Bones in the Media Relations department, starting as an intern for one year before becoming the Assistant Director of Media Relations in 2010. Before the 2012 season, Grasmon became the Coordinator of Promotions and Events for the Washington Nationals. In this Friday Flashback, as we catch up with former T-Bones associates who moved to other sports ventures, we feature Grasmon, who answered questions via e-mail.

What are a few of the more vivid memories from your time with the T-Bones?

Sara Grasmon: I'll always be able to picture the view from the second row of the press box, looking over the shoulders of Lou Spry and Ted Tow while we scored each game. That was the best seat in the house.

Do you have a favorite moment or experience working with the club?

SG: I don't have one favorite moment, but I genuinely loved all my time at the ballpark. I had great co-workers and an amazing mentor, so each day was an opportunity to learn and grow as a professional in a fun and exciting environment.

Career-wise, what have you done between working for the T-Bones and landing with the Nationals?

SG: After my second season in Kansas City, I returned to Minnesota and worked as a communications consultant for Bellmont Partners Public Relations. In December 2010, I attended the Winter Meetings in Orlando, Fla., where I accepted a position with the Hagerstown Suns. I moved to Maryland three weeks later and was the Director, Community Relations and Marketing for the Suns until taking my current position with the Nationals.

What exactly do you do with the Nationals?

SG: Our department is responsible for all gate giveaways, baseball-related special events, the Jr. Nationals Kids Club, theme nights and other various projects, so no two days are ever the same.

How did working with the T-Bones help prepare you for working with the Nationals?

SG: I learned what it was like to work in baseball and developed skills that have helped me with each step of my career. From 10-game homestands to rain delays, every experience with the T-Bones taught me something new.

What do you miss most about Kansas City and working with the T-Bones?

SG: The people.
