"I'm very interested in the research division of advertising. It is a more underrated part of advertising and it helps every project get off of the ground. I thought it would be great to take advantage of the ability to do research now to jumpstart my career."

Research Description

The Rising Age of Major League Baseball Fans.
I am researching the reason behind the rise in age of the average major league baseball fan. Of all major sports, baseball has the oldest average fan and I'm trying to determine why college age students no longer watch baseball as they have in the past.
