The Northwest Indiana Oilmen of the Midwest Collegiate League have named Brandon Vickrey their Director of Communications. Vickrey’s new role will include play-by-play broadcasting and public relations. Vickrey has been a part of the Oilmen organization since the team’s inaugural season, serving as a broadcasting and media relations intern the past two years. Vickrey is a graduate of Portage High School and a Valparaiso University digital media major.  He previously served as the coverage team coordinator for Ideas in Motion Media and is currently a radio producer for 89.1 FM The Lakeshore. Vickrey’s duties will begin immediately with writing press releases, maintaining the team’s website and updating the team’s social media outlets throughout the offseason. The Northwest Indiana Oilmen have found success in each of their first two seasons, reaching the Midwest Collegiate League Championship in both 2012 and 2013.  Manager Justin Huisman led the team to the league title in its inaugural season. The Oilmen fell to the Southland Vikings in the 2013 MCL Championship Series. In each of their first two seasons, the Oilmen roster has featured many local players that attended high school in Northwest Indiana before going on to play baseball in the collegiate ranks.  The organization plans to continue that trend in 2014
