Jayson Stark '73, Tim Kurkjian and Dan Shulman shared their paths to sports reporting and advice to aspiring journalists.

Students and faculty packed the Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium Friday when three ESPN baseball personalities visited the Newhouse School.

“There are really two reasons I am where I am in life,” said Jayson Stark ‘73, a graduate of the Newhouse School. “One is because I’m one of those lucky people in the world who is doing exactly what I dreamed of doing since I was nine years old. And the second reason I am here today is because I went to Syracuse.”

More than 70 students, from across nearly every SU school, gathered at the iSchool for the second annual MLB.com College Challenge.

It was 9 p.m. when sophomore Max Greenberg gathered with the rest of his group, Team Winston, in one of the computer labs in the School of Information Studies’ (iSchool) basement.

Greenberg, who studies information management and technology, thought the problem his challenge group needed to solve was what to do about the slow nature of a baseball game.
