Hofstra student sports journalist Kenny Conrad interviews Sean Monaghan for WRHU. When freshmen sports journalists have amazing opportunities like covering an NBA d-league team, one can only imagine the incredible things they will create in the future.
We wanted to do a sports feature about a unique topic involving unsung hard working people involved in the pro sports industry that often go unnoticed while providing an important role. We did some research and found out who sews the names and numbers and team logos on the jerseys for the NHL NY Islanders, MLB NY Mets, and MLB NY Yankees. The name of the company is Stitches. We went to their factory, took a tour, and met with some of their employees to gather information and audio. We then assembled what we hope is a unique and memorable sports feature.
