Red Sox Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom Speaks with Students
Earlier this month, Red Sox's new Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom visited the Gann Academy campus for an informal chat with students.
Eamon '20, who pitches for the Gann Varsity Baseball team, had a multitude of questions for Bloom. "It was an honor to meet such an influential person in the world of professional baseball," said Eamon. At the meeting, Bloom discussed his career, his Jewish faith, and how his time in Jewish Day School influenced who he is today.
"The way Bloom talked about his morals and values correlating to how he makes baseball decisions was truly inspiring," said Eamon. "It shows me how everything that I'm being taught at Gann will help me later in life, no matter what I end up doing." Eamon continues: "Whether I go into finance, medicine, or even sports analytics, my morals and values will play a major part in all of my decisions."
Bloom began his baseball career interning for the San Diego Padres and later for the Tampa Bay Rays. At the Rays, he worked his way up to Senior Vice President of Baseball Operations. He is a graduate of Yale University and is the brother-in-law to Gann Head of School Dr. Dalia Hochman.
