Hello, my name is Harrison Smajovits. I’m a third-year telecommunication student at the University of Florida. I’m from St. Petersburg, Florida, and I grew up about 25 minutes from Tropicana Field–the home of the Tampa Bay Rays. I aspire to join the ranks of Bob Uecker and Dewayne Staats by pursuing a career in sports play-by-play. I’m also looking to boost my writing and reporting skills as I cover teams over Spring Break.
Below is a schedule of my travels. I traveled to four ballparks to see five games over seven days and saw six teams. You can find my coverage using my twitter handle @smajovits0820 or by searching the hashtag “Grapefruit Gators”
