Sam Freedman Sam Freedman athlete marketer. avid sports fan. family man.

sam_freedman_feature

I try to make life as fun as possible. I’m always the one who’s organizing trips and events. I’m happy to do the work to create fun experiences for myself and my friends and family.

I’m lucky to come from a family with a deep appreciation for family and a broad definition of family. I try to do what my parents and grandparents did and instilled in me to do, which is make family of everyone I encounter. Treating everyone as family has made everything I’ve done in life more meaningful, because I’ve shared it with people I care deeply about.

Since I left home in Texas, I’ve realized even more about what family is and how important it is. I’ve made family out of friends and cousins here in California that I hadn’t know very well before, and I’ve been able to expand my definition of family even more.

I always knew sports would be a big part of my life, since the first time I walked through the turnstiles at the Astrodome. I grew up sharing my experiences there with my family. Early on, I realized that if I could go to work every day in the world of sports, I’d have a life I loved. I’ve thought about that since I was eight or nine years old.

When I was in high school, I worked for the Houston Astros. I’d go straight from school to the stadium, work until 1:00 am, then do homework for two hours, and be back at school five hours later. I’d repeat that process throughout the six-month season. I might have been doing grunt work, but from 7 to 10 pm I was on the Major League playing field with guys I idolized. At the end of the day, I realized I was having a blast.

As a kid, I dreamed of playing sports professionally, but there’s not much room on a professional sports team for a 5-foot-8-inch tall Jewish kid. When I’m watching sports, I still feel that little kid in me, the one who fearlessly dove on the base pads, who got into collisions at the plate or ran around the bases and scored.

I started early with my desire for a career in sports and I’m now working my dream job. I love everything I’m doing now, but I’m also keeping an open mind about figuring out where I’m headed with my career.
