Business Student Interns for New York Yankees During Spring Training

Molly Sigerich, an undergraduate student in the H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship who will be graduating from the B.S. in Sport and Recreation Management program in May 2012, has been an intern for the Tampa Yankees minor league baseball team since Summer 2011. This year, she was invited to participate in the New York Yankees’ Spring Training, which is held at the same field that is home to the Tampa Yankees.

In this position, Molly helped with game operations and making sure things ran smoothly on game day. She was responsible for working the will-call window, making sure parking lists were completed and correct, and making sure the suites were ready for game time. She would also walk around the stadium during the games passing out flyers and information for the Tampa Yankees’ season.

“It’s great getting to interact with all of the big-time players on a daily basis,” said Molly. “My office door leads right into the underground tunnel where all the players walk in and out. On the first day of practice I ran into Lou Pinella on my way to lunch and it was so awesome!”

Molly attests that this internship experience has taught her a lot about game operations on a larger scale, and what it takes to get a sold out stadium of 11,000 people ready for a big game. She also learned the importance of problem solving and reacting professionally.

Molly played on the NSU volleyball team, and has completed all the other coursework for her degree in Sport and Recreation Management.  She will intern for the Tampa Yankees throughout Summer 2012.
