He’s done more in four weeks than we’ll do all semester on campus
While we're all watching the Olympics on TV and dreaming about our would-be figure skating careers, NYU Steinhardt's very own senior Marshall Kramsky is getting in on the action up close. Kramsky is currently in Pyeongchang, helping to cover the Winter Olympics with NBC.
Studying Media, Culture and Communications with a minor in the Business of Entertainment Media and Technology as well as Religious Studies, Kramsky applied for this experience of a lifetime about 18 months ago and underwent a series of interviews. In total, Kramsky will live in South Korea for six weeks.
"Leading up to the games, the most important things were learning all about Korean culture and athletics," Kramsky said. "I did everything from going ice fishing at the PyeongChang Trout Festival, eating street food in Seoul and studying everything there is to know about as many athletes as I could in each winter sport."Kra...
After 20 years of running showcase camps, we’re continually awed and humbled by the student-athletes who we have the privilege of hosting each year. Their mindset, work ethic and grit set these athletes apart, and provide the foundation for success with each endeavor they undertake along their journey.
With these qualities in mind, we are excited to present the next edition of our Alumni Spotlight Series which focuses on an aspiring sports broadcaster and a student-athlete whose unorthodox recruiting journey proves that it’s never too late to find the school that fits perfectly with your athletic and academic goals.

Bio: A senior pitcher for the Violets, Marshall has faced his share of on-field adversity at NYU. In 2016, he was diagnosed with a torn ulnar-collateral ligament and received the surgical pr...
Tommy John surgery is so common in baseball these days it’s hard to remember a time without it. But Violets sophomore pitcher Marshall Kramsky, who is also a self-proclaimed baseball trivia expert, is thankful every day he can throw a ball. This past offseason, the righty was the first player in the history of the NYU varsity baseball program to have ever received the surgery.
“If this was 1973, I wouldn’t be able to play again,” Kramsky said.
On May 16, 1974, NYU’s varsity baseball team was trounced 13-7 by Princeton, a fitting conclusion to a winless season and what would be the final game for over 40 years. Four months later, Dodgers pitcher Tommy John went under the knife to repair a torn elbow ligament as Dr. Frank Jobe performed for the first time what is now a common procedure.
