Thank you for the opportunity to apply to the Social Media Coordinator position with the Kansas City Royals. Contained on this page are my created Tweets for the application as well as a link to my cover letter and resume.
- Player makes his MLB debut -
I mocked up a Tweet for. Kyle Isbel, but since he hasn't made his debut yet, I used a video of Whit Merrifield as a placeholder.
-"Baseball is Back" hype post-
Pictured is a mock of a Royals version of Michael Jordan's famous "I'm back" fax.
- Star wins batting title -
Jorge Soler has proved to be a mainstay in the Kansas City lineup since his arrival in 2017 from Chicago. As a powerhouse DH, I thought he was fitting to be the batting title.
-Ace starter gets injured in 8th-
A simple tweet making the information known that our ace has suffered an injury.
-Getting out of a jam-
As Kyle Zimmer had to do to get out of a bases loaded no out jam, I also got creative with how we could relay that sentiment.
-Manager ejected after aruging-
I generated a simple statement of Mike Matheny being ejected, feeling that ejections shouldn't garner much detail of why it happened right away, but more that the event is widely known.
Star-studded play but no highlight-
As the star outfielder, I chose Whit Merrifield. While it's essential to make sure we publicize his beautiful play, finding a way to combat the delay was to merge it with an end of inning notice. The contained highlight is of an infield play by Merrifield, but I am aware that he is set to start in right field.
-Scenic photos in a loss-
I don't think that it's a bad thing for teams to acknowledge a loss in a positive attitude. A great way to do that would be with these beauty shots.
-Nine game win streak-
While highlight videos and decked out graphics are a great way for teams to go to present their successes, sometimes a little wordplay can be just as effective.
An efficient and effective manner to show that our season is underway is with a simple video of the team taking the field. The video used is from a prior season of the Royals running out for opening day.
