Dan Brandt ’11

By WENDI WHEELER ’06

Major: marketing

Internship: Minnesota Twins Public Affairs Office

What are you doing?

I bring the children of major donors and long-time season ticket holders onto the field for batting practice so they can see what happens and meet the players. I also coordinate a few of the opening pitches.

What have you learned?

I have learned how much goes into the presentation of a professional sporting event. There is so much that you don’t see or hear about that’s behind the scenes to make a baseball game run.

What is the value of your internship?

I have had a lot of unique experiences—meeting people, networking, and doing things out of the ordinary that most people don’t get to do. At some point I would like to have a career in this field, but it is very competitive.
