WHO ARE THE ERIE SEAWOLVES?
The Erie SeaWolves are the Double-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. The team is owned and operated by At Bat Group, LLC. Over 200 SeaWolves have played Major League Baseball including Justin Verlander, Curtis Granderson, John Lackey, Michael Fulmer, Eugenio Suarez and Andrew Miller. Erie is located in northwest Pennsylvania, conveniently between Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Buffalo. The SeaWolves play their home games at UPMC Park, just 10 blocks from the shores of Lake Erie.
Two new Daktronics LED video displays were added during the 2019 season. Over $12 million in additional stadium upgrades have been introduced to UPMC Park following the 2019 season including a new 1,550 sq. ft. team store, a new 230-guest stadium club and renovated suites, restrooms, concessions, and party spaces.
WHAT IS THE OPPORTUNITY?
The SeaWolves are looking for two creative, motivated students who are interested in earning credit hours by completing a seasonal learning experience in game day entertainment, marketing, and communications. Video production and graphics interns will be mentored by the Director of Entertainment and gain experience shooting/editing videos, live sports production, creating video board graphics, web content, and marketing materials. Interns also will use professional production equipment (cameras, Click Effects, Show Control, and Tricaster), learn best practices, and participate in delivering the game presentation.
All college majors are welcome to apply. This Full-Time Internship opportunity will begin in April 2021 and conclude when the season ends in September 2021. Schedule flexibility is available during the final few weeks of the spring semester and the first few weeks of the fall semester. Experience with Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro, & After Effects) is preferred.

*Some exceptions may apply; schedule subject to change
