(March 24, 2011) Nick Gagalis is ready for the grind of broadcasting more baseball games this summer. An STAA client, Gagalis is joining the Worcester Tornadoes of the Can-Am League as Marketing Manager and Radio Broadcaster.
A native of Boston, Gagalis moves to Worcester after spending last summer in Wappingers Falls, NY with the Hudson Valley Renegades of the New York Penn League.
“The biggest thing about [the new job] is it’s a slightly longer season, 94 games instead of 76,” says Gagalis. “It’s more games but with more off days. It’s a different environment but its closer to home.”
In addition to broadcasting, Gagalis will be taking care of social media, sponsorship fulfillment and the production of marketing materials for the Tornadoes.
“It’s another opportunity for me to get out there, prove what I’m worth and grow,” says Gagalis. “It’s the same opportunity I had with the Renegades but more. I’m getting into sales more than I’ve been before.”
A graduate of Boston University, Gagalis has also broadcast play-by-play for the Brewster Whitecaps of the Cape Cod League, and served internships with 890 ESPN Radio Boston and New England Sports Network. He has considerable experience in social media, PR and marketing.
