The Promotions Associate will be mentored by the Director of Entertainment and gain experience with game day presentation, development of game day promotions, outreach to vendors and prospective promotional partners, assisting with special events, baseball camps and community affairs efforts, and learning through participation in departmental planning meetings. Based on experience and skill set, the Promotions Intern could assist with content for the team's social media feeds or serve as a game day emcee/host. The Promotions Intern also may assist with execution of SeaWolves Community Fund initiatives such as settling the nightly 50/50 program, Launch-a-Ball, jersey auctions, donation requests and mascot appearances.
