Taking the Emerald City by storm

By Trevor Havard
WSU Sport Management Club

About 30 students from the WSU Sport Management Club traveled to Seattle for its fall semester trip Sept. 27-28 to visit Safeco Field and see the Seattle Mariners face off against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The trip included an exclusive pregame tour of Safeco Field, including the chance to see executive offices, press boxes, luxury suits, and more.

The club members also held a thorough Q&A session with the Seattle Mariner’s director of ticket sales where they received valuable advice and got an inside look at what working in professional sports is like. The students asked a ton of questions and many said the experience was great.

At the game, the students sat in Safeco Field’s Terrace Club thanks to a great group deal given to the club. The game itself was a nail-biter, as the Seattle Mariners won in extra innings with the season hanging in the balance.

The trip was such a success that many of the students went back to Safeco Field the next day and watched the Mariner’s final game of the season before returning to Pullman. Great job WSU Sport Management Club and thank you for representing WSU Sport Management so well.
