Emily Peters Hits a Home Run Interning for Orioles Minor League Affiliate
IMC major Emily Peters, ‘15, interned with the MiLB Frederick Keys, the Single “A” Affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles in the summer of 2013. The Frederick Keys organization, located in Frederick, Maryland, provides a fun, affordable family atmosphere and a chance to see future Orioles players move up through its farm system.
Emily was a marketing and business promotions intern for the Keys, where she worked mainly with other interns to plan local appearances and execute in-game promotions. Emily was able to plan and participate in multiple sponsored theme nights. Her responsibilities also included running a children’s baseball camp and reading program, in addition to other local events.
One of her daily responsibilities was executing outside mascot appearances. This included taking the mascot to local schools, restaurants and camps, handing out Keys game schedules and encouraging fans to come support the team. These promotions involved interns dressing in the mascot costume and participating in theme nights. For example, Emily dressed up for Superhero Night, Christmas in July and Disney Night.
Emily said: “This internship was a life changing experience. I was able to be creative and energetic to make others happy. I met amazing friends, while working hard and doing something meaningful for the Frederick community. I now know I want to work in sports doing community outreach because I will be able to work with kids, families and sports fans. I hope to one day be working in baseball again.”
