LANDON STRADLEY SENIOR PROJECT: PRODUCT LOG
Operations with the Atlanta Braves; maintaining stadium stability, maintaining guest satisfaction, and maintaining security and safet
MONDAY JUNE 6, 2016 12 P.M.- 12A.M./ 12 HOURS
Upon my arrival at turner field I had only one work day of experience under my belt and a year of intro. To drafting and design class. As I acquired my badge and other workday materials I made my way to the office where I met with Gloria for the pre-game checklist.
Tasks for the day
Remove handicapped seating (specifically marked)
Repair light in Fox Sports South room
Repair broken seats (specifically marked)
Check chillers for malfunctioning
Do housekeeping stadium sweep
Check barricades and make sure security has enough hands, if not go to guest relations and report the problem
Replace necessary lights
Activity Description cont.
As I completed my task I reached Gloria through my walky-talky and told her that we were ready to let the guests in. While guests filled the stands I reported to the electrical engineers office and got on the main computer to make sure that all the lights were set on automatic (green). I then walked to the stadium lights panel and turned the keys as instructed by the head electrical engineer (Buster).
During the game a call came in for a machine in the batting cages. It had quit working and was not pitching to the players. After being instructed by Buster on how to check for issues on our end of the machine I was sent down there to investigate. I followed all the procedures as shown and came to a conclusion that everything was fine on our end of the machine. This meant that electricity was clearly flowing to the machine and that there was nothing wrong with the stadium. The machine was then sent back to the manufacturer and the braves received a new one the next day.
I also received a call from the housekeeping end that a toilet had malfunctioned. One of the suites had flooded and Pueblo and I were sent to the cite. Upon arrival it wasn’t as bad as the guests had put off. Pueblo showed me what we would have done if something really had happened, but to our dismay someone had peed on the floor and was so embarrassed that they called it a flood.
I am changing the overhead light in the Fox Sports South newsroom. This was a very cool experience because while on the job I was able to meet the reporters for Fox Sports South.
I am giving Buster (one of my guides and facilitators) a hand with the malfunctioning pitching machine. This project excited me because while working on the machine I was able to meet a few coaches for the Atlanta Braves.
During the game I had to fix this pumping system as it was causing trouble for the men in the locker rooms. I felt rushed in doing this because the players tend to complain because the players tend to complain a lot when something is going wrong.
Upon my arrival at Turner Field I felt more confident than during my first day, but to my dismay Gloria sent me out on jobs by myself which was very unsexpected. I was worried that I would let my project facilitator down. The jobs she put me on were tiring and the sun was blazing down on me. Once all of my tasks were completed and approved by my facilitator, I had a sudden burst of confidence that I could do anything. I was very flattered that my facilitator wanted me to give the call to security to start bringing the guests in. Knowing how important this job was, it meant very much that he put all of his trust in me.
It was neat to be able to walk by all of the guests and know that what they’re about to witness was by my making. When I turned on the lights and checked to make sure they were all functioning I felt so empowered like I controlled the field. During my first day I was not allowed in the locker room or any of the batting cages, so for me to be requested to help in those rooms it meant so much. It seemed that they really cared about my education in engineering and were trying their best to help me understand everything that was needed to be done. It was very neat being able to see how Buster and the head coaches were very close this gave me hope that one day I would be able to have the amazing opportunities that Buster has had.
I was quite disgusted when I was called to fix a malfunctioning toilet. I did not want to have to deal with the mess that was made, but it was a job that Pablo and I took in stride. To our luck the toilet wasn’t broken at all. Pablo and I laughed because of the smell of the mess on the floor. It was gross cleaning up the mess that the men had made, but it was also a funny experience seeing intoxicated people make a fool of themselves.
At the end of the night, I was proud of my accomplishments and was ready for another go-around. I can’t wait for my next visit and hope that it is even better than my last two.
