Joe Barbieri

Experienced sports writer with a passion for baseball
Hopkinton, Massachusetts USA


My passion for baseball drove me to find a sports career, which I enjoyed for over a decade before electing to raise my two sons on a full-time basis. Coaching their baseball and hockey teams while closely following the NHL, NFL and MLB has reinvigorated my desire to make sports a primary focus in my professional life.


Director of Marketing and Public Relations

Mar 2009 - Oct 2009
As the team’s maiden PR and Marketing Director, I concentrated on the media logistics concerning the organization’s successful launch into the NBA Development League. I spearheaded a grassroots marketing effort and composed frequent newsletters documenting the team’s community involvement and enlightening the fan base about upcoming events.

Director of Marketing and Media Relations

Oct 2006 - Dec 2008
I composed and distributed all league press releases and publications, including bi-monthly newsletters and the annual media guide. Additionally, I served as the primary contact for all interview requests and the point person for league-wide marketing endeavors.

Senior Editor

Dec 2002 - Dec 2005
I composed and edited sports-related features, breaking news stories, previews, recaps and team notes in a newsroom environment with real-time demands. Assisting in the supervision of 15-20 newsroom reporters, I ensured quality copy consistently reached wire service customers such as Yahoo, AOL and USA Today in addition to ESPN.


Environmental Science - Bachelors
Sep 1990 - May 1994
I switched my major to Environmental Science as a junior at BC in hopes of pursuing a career in meteorology. That did not end up panning out, so I received a graduate credit in statistics from Harvard before seeking employment in the sports world.
