    Alumni spotlight: Q&A with Carter Hall '15, certified MLB agent

    Share a little about your story- what experiences or opportunities led you to your current role? 
    My story really started the day I was born. I have had the privilege to watch my dad coach at Georgia Tech since the day I was born, and I watched him impact so many lives. The days spent on that campus growing up and as a student-athlete is where my passion blossomed. After a spinal fusion my junior year at Georgia Tech, I knew my playing career was over, and I started to inquire about potential jobs in Major League Baseball front offices. I had conversations with a couple different teams, but I ultimately settled on the Blue Jays due to the thoroughness of their vetting process. I knew that if they took hiring this seriously, it was the place for me.
