A few beers with Professor David Juran

Brett Baptist, MBA Class of 2013

Brett Baptist: So you just got back from a trip to baseball Spring Training in Florida. Who’s your team?

David Juran: The Dodgers, but I haven’t seen them play in a long time. They used to hold spring training in Florida but now they do it in Arizona.
