Favorite MASN social media posts of 2017

At the beginning of 2017, I spent time putting together a blog of my favorite MASN tweets with social media tips on why they were effective and how other organizations could take advantage of MASN’s social strategy.

This year, am I going to do a blog post of my favorite MASN posts of 2017? Of course. Am I going to share them for me this year, recapping moments I made myself laugh and tooting my own horn? You betcha.

That being said, I have been serving as the social media director at MASN for the last two seasons and creating social media content for MASN for the past seven seasons. One of my favorite parts of my career is helping the next generation of social media and digital specialists. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to tweet me: @oliviawitherite

So, anyway… * toot, toot *

Nothing like a classic “JK” or “siiiike” joke.

“How do you do, fellow kids?”

Ah, yes, my two favorite things: baseball and 30 Rock.

Last night took a L, but tonight they bounce back. #IBackTheBirds

I promise, this song was popular when I wrote the caption.

Hey, Chicago, what do you say? The #Nats are gonna win today! #IBackTheNats

Again, this was funny/very relevant when I wrote the caption during the NLDS. *sad trombone*

This was probably my favorite day of the season. Gary Thorne is a big hero of mine, and it’s been so great getting to learn from and laugh with him over the years. Like me, Gary is an avid reader. I was inspired by Goodreads to hide some of Gary’s favorite books around the ballpark. The day was great, and this video will always bring a smile to my face. (Shot and edited by Paul Mancano)

Despite me having to look up how to spell her name every time, Eireann Dolan is a huge inspiration to me. (She’s married to Nats reliever Sean Doolittle, but I’ve been following along with her journey just as long as his.) She’s freaking hilarious, and when Doolittle was traded to the Nats, it allowed for some really good content.

Technically, this isn’t a MASN post, but I was so proud that Adam Jones shared an Instagram of an event I’ve worked so hard to grow. MASN’s Fan Challenge has evolved into a huge event that showcases a bunch of facets of my job like event planning, social media management, player negotiations, PR, videography and much more! You can check out a recap below that aired on the Orioles broadcast.

Not only is this video hilarious and starring one of my favorite coworkers, it also shows the next level of videography we brought to the table this year across MASN’s digital platforms. This video is so entertaining, the branding is on-point and Paul Mancano once again did an amazing job shooting and editing.


*Retweets the same paragraph I wrote for the last video*

I could share so much more content, but I think we can all agree that this is getting a little braggy. Seriously though, we could have done none of this without the passion and enthusiasm of our fans. Thanks for another fantastic baseball season. Can’t wait for another season of puns, GIFs, memes and hot takes.
