Come to think of it, it’s only natural that Major League Baseball would care about the environment. “We require good weather, and green grass, and clean soil, and wood bats,” says Jason Kobeda, the league’s Senior Coordinator for Facility Operations. So “it’s prudent that we take an interest.” Whether it’s using LED lighting in its stadiums, planting a roof garden atop Boston’s Fenway Park, or collecting more than a ton of recyclables at a recent Miami Marlins game, the league has been a leader in environmental sustainability. Here Kobeda talks with Daniel Kelly, Ph.D, Faculty Director of Georgetown’s Sports Industry Management program, about how Georgetown students assisted with this effort during the recent MLB All-Star Game at Nationals Park.
