New to the Mix – Tyler Graham Staff Feature
This offseason, the G-Braves have brought in eight new staff members. To get fans more acclimated to the recently added staff, we will be having weekly staff features here on the blog. Let’s cut right to the chase and lead things off with the new Ticket Sales Manager, Tyler Graham, who joined the team on October 18th.
How did you end up with the G-Braves and what previous sports experience, if any, got you to the position you currently hold?
I ended up in Gwinnett after spending the previous 5 seasons working for the Atlanta Braves. In addition to working in the big leagues, I interned for the Cleveland Browns in the NFL. Working for such top-notch organizations has given me the experience I’ve needed to grow within this industry.
As a new member of the staff, what are you looking forward to most when it comes to working for a new team?
I’m looking forward to getting to know all of our season ticket holders and continue to make the Gwinnett Braves the premium experience in all of Minor League baseball.
What is your dream job in sports and how does it compare to what you wanted to be as a kid?
While I don’t have one job that I would categorize as a “dream job,” I can say that I always wanted to be involved in the business of sports in some capacity. I’ve been lucky enough to work with and learn from some great people and I look forward to continuing to pursue my goals with the Gwinnett Braves!
We asked each new staff member a number of “This or That” questions to find out some things you might not figure out by just looking at the online staff bios.
Tyler prefers N’Sync over the Backstreet Boys, Benny Rodriguez and The Sandlot over Charlie Conway and Mighty Ducks. He’ll take the pizza-loving Ninja Turtles over the Angel Grove saving Power Rangers as well. His favorite cartoon growing up? Doug. Whether or not he had a crush on Patty Mayonnaise is still a mystery to us all.
When asked who would play him in a movie and what genre his life story would be, Tyler went with Vince Vaughn as the actor to portray him in a comedy. If he were to be a member of a family in a TV Sitcom, it would be Marshall Eriksen in How I Met Your Mother.
Tyler likes the NFL (Chicago Bears) over College Football, Chick-Fil-A and McDonald’s over Zaxby’s and Burger King. Mexican is above Italian in his book as well. Also, if he needed someone to save him, his choice was Batman over the Man of Steel.
Last but not least, his walk out song…Hells Bells by AC/DC…feel free to take a listen below.
If you want information on tickets, feel free to give Tyler and his ticket department a call at 678-277-0340. Only 116 days until Opening Day here at Coolray!
