A native of Pittsburgh, Penn., Cool first began her journey into the sports world with the Pittsburgh Pirates, guarding the foul lines as a Ball Girl. From then on, Cool took the Pittsburgh sports world by storm and found her way into many other organizations throughout the Steel City while holding a number of different positions with the Pittsburgh Penguins (Media Relations Intern), ROOTSports (Live Production Intern), Entercom Radio (Producer), Wheeling Nailers (In-Arena Host), Pittsburgh Riverhounds (In-Game Host/Reporter), Pittsburgh Pirates (Co-Host) and AT&T Sports Network (Social Media Coordinator).
While juggling multiple positions within Pittsburgh, Cool finished up her M.A. at Point Park University, which helped lead her to a brand-new city with unlimited opportunity during the Baseball Winter Meetings in 2017.
For the past two years, Cool has resided in Salem, Virginia, working for the Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. During the 2018 campaign, Cool served as the team’s on-field host and media/graphics assistant, while also tacking on another role as the team’s color analyst before the end of the season. After one year under her belt in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Cool got brought on to the Salem Red Sox staff full-time as the club’s marketing and promotions manager, on-field host and color analyst for the 2019 season. Cool made history twice within her tenure with the Boston organization, becoming the first female to broadcast in the Carolina League in 2018 (fourth overall in MiLB) and in 2019 being a part of the first all-female broadcasting team in all of professional baseball alongside partner Melanie Newman.
Cool is a 2015 graduate of St. Vincent College in Latrobe, Penn., where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Communication with a minor in Graphic Design. Cool also attended graduate school at Point Park University and earned her master’s in Media Communication.
