Over 50 local alumni came together to watch the New York Yankees take on the Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium. The event was part of the university’s “New Buckeyes, New City” initiative and served as an official welcome to the NYC Alumni Club for 22 members of the Class of 2018.
Despite cloudy skies and rain, everyone enjoyed a pre-game buffet on the MasterPass Batter’s Eye Deck in center field. During the reception, Brendan Smith (’08) was honored with the Rising Buckeye award. Since graduating, Brendan has served his country in the Navy, managed an office tower in Manhattan and is currently employed as the director of engineering for the NYC Ferry.
