Driving to work knowing my destination is Comerica Park for work every day is a blessing itself. My internship with the Detroit Tigers is so very exciting. I will be working as a member of the Marketing and Promotions team. The team consists of five full time employees, three promotions interns, and one marketing intern…me! I started the internship during Spring Break and will begin Monday-Friday and all home games after graduation this month. My responsibilities in the office include: ticket requests for all media partners, managing all autographed memorabilia, creating and implementing all aspects of Motown Night, along with so much more. During games I’m busy assisting with the National Anthem singer, First Pitch thrower, pre-game ceremonies, finding participants for during game promotions, walking around with Paws, assisting with marriage proposals, helping at the Kid’s Club Kiosk, and overall creating a great experience for the Detroit Tiger’s fans. My job is incredibly rewarding. The looks on people’s faces when I tell them they’ve been selected as our fan of the game or the joy in children’s eyes when Paws signs their baseball for them is priceless. I’m really looking forward to spending my summer at the ballpark, gaining experience, and creating memories that will last forever. Go Tigers!
