Media Relations Assistant
Hello to all of Redbirds and Cardinals Nation!
My name is Michael Stagno and I am the new media relations assistant for the Memphis Redbirds. Working in professional baseball has been a lifelong dream of mine. I was raised on the sport by my grandfather, a devout Boston Red Sox fan (a family tradition). I’m from New England and I love cold weather and snow! I graduated from Auburn University (War Eagle!) in May of 2011 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. While at Auburn, I was also an intern at the Auburn athletic complex for over two years where I assisted with all the men’s and women’s athletics programs.
My hobbies: I enjoy kayaking, mountain biking, traveling, playing/watching sports and the occasional stint on my Xbox 360.
My favorite musicians: The Black Keys, Kings of Leon, Jet, The White Stripes, Dropkick Murphys, Dispatch, Ryan Adams and David Gray.
My favorite movies: All of the Indiana Jones films (except for the fourth one); Gladiator; 300; Kingdom of Heaven; Conan the Barbarian; Forgetting Sarah Marshall; I Love You, Man; Hot Rod and MacGruber.
My favorite sports moment: Came during the 2004 MLB Playoffs. The Boston Red Sox became the first MLB team to overcome a 3-0 postseason deficit to win four games in a row, defeating the New York Yankees for the A.L. pennant. The Sox would then go on to sweep the St. Louis Cardinals for their first World Series title since 1918.
