Take me out to the ballgame…

Did you even know there was an Arland Sports? Most people who read this blog, visit our website or work with The Arland Group, just see one aspect of our business. They see the creative agency; the group of really smart and bright minds that work on branding and marketing campaigns and produce exceptional websites and creative material.

But it’s not the only thing we do. Jason Wood, The Arland Group’s president and co-founder, also runs Arland Sports, and represents an impressive roster of professional baseball players. Check out the website at www.arlandsports.com.

I don’t do a lot with Arland Sports, as The Arland Group keeps me plenty busy. However, I had a great opportunity last week to go see one of our players, David Phelps, make his first major league start for the New York Yankees. The Yanks were playing in Kansas City, a short three-hour and change jaunt from our St. Louis offices.

It was a short trip that consisted of seven hours of driving and only about two hours of watching baseball, but it was well worth it. There are not a lot of similarities between what we do at The Arland Group and Arland Sports, but both companies approach business in the same way. We do great work for our clients in an honest and open environment. It’s the only way to run a business, regardless of what industry you’re in.
