Branden Vandal (BA ’19), who earned his undergraduate degree in Business Management at HIU, was recently profiled in a Los Angeles Times’ article about his unconventional job as a “bat boy” for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He’s been with the Dodgers since 2015 and received a World Series championship ring when the team won it all in 2020. Branden aspires to advance beyond the dugout and clubhouse, but he’s not ready to wear a suit and tie just yet.

“I think at first fans see a bat boy and assume it’s a younger kid,” said Vandal. “But all these guys are young men or older, even in their 30s. We do it because we enjoy what we do.”
