Senior Capstone Career Project - Product Work Log
Name : Madelyn Dorn
Product: Baseball Tournament
Date, Time, & Location:
Activity: My mentor came to my house and we discussed my product and the best time to hold the tournament. We also talked about everything we would need for it including umpires, teams, fields, advertisement, and possible concession stand.
Commentary: We decided March would be the best idea, because that is right before travel baseball season begins. This kind of stresses me out because that means if anything goes wrong, I will not have very much time to reschedule anything before Senior Boards
Time Spent: 2 hours with mentor
Total Time Thus Far: 2 hours
Activity: I went over to my mentor’s home and we began looking for local baseball fields and teams that would be willing to participate.
Commentary: Since it was so early, most teams were not able to commit quite yet. I did find possible fields that we would be able to use, which is good! We contacted the director of those fields and are waiting on a response. Another thing we discussed was that in travel ball, there are different levels of tournaments, so it is important that we get teams around the same level.
Total Time Thus Far: 4 hours
Activity: Contacted umpires and got the field needed for the event! We also began contacting teams about committing to the date. We set up times for a round robin tournament with 3 teams all playing each other once.
Commentary: It is amazing how willing people are to actually help out such an amazing cause. There are also so many baseball teams in our area, so that will not be an issue either.
Total Time Thus Far: 6 hours with mentor
Date, Time, & Location:
Activity: We set the date for the tournament as March 12 and got in touch with several teams who all confirmed they would play.
Commentary: It was so important that we got teams from the same level. It took some time waiting for them to respond, so we discussed how we would inform people about Wounded Warrior Foundation.
Time Spent: 1.5 hours with mentor
Total Time Thus Far: 7.5 hours with mentor
Activity: Went to Pinnacle Orthopedics in Woodstock asking to sponsor the tournament and pay for signage for advertisement. They said yes and donated frisbees and portable chargers to hand out as well!
Commentary: I enjoy meeting with people and discussing the benefits of them sponsoring and convincing them as to why it is a good cause to help. Next I need to come up with the design for the sign.
Time Spent: 1 hour and 15 minutes with mentor
Total Time Thus Far: 8 hours and 45 minutes with mentor
Activity: Went to Bunker Designs in Downtown Woodstock and asked for help with designing a sign.
Commentary: It was super easy! It’s really amazing how people are so willing to help within the community for fundraisers. Hopefully the design will be complete soon so pinnacle can pay for it.
Time Spent: 30 minutes
Total Time Thus Far: 9 hours and 15 minutes
(8 hours and 45 min with mentor)
Activity: Ordered the sign and had it made and also discussed finalized plans for the event with Alison
Commentary: I can not wait! This is going to be so much fun.
Total Time Thus Far: 9 hours 45 minutes
(9 hours and 15 minutes with mentor)
Activity: Rescheduling and cancellations.
Commentary: The weather sucks. I am sitting here at 10:30 at night bummed out and stressed because it is pouring down rain and the field will not be okay to play on tomorrow.
Time Spent: 15 minutes
Total Time Thus Far: 10 hours
Activity: Had to get back in contact with the field director, umpires, and teams about setting a new date.
Commentary: I planned the 17th of March with the field director, and got new umpires who are available for the games. Also got confirmation back from 2 teams, but the third is unavailable.
Time Spent: 1.5 hours
Total Time Thus Far: 10.5 hours
Activity: Found 2 more teams available to play!
Commentary: I feel bad turning one team down, so I will let them both join and just add one extra game to where each team plays 2 games.
Total Time Thus Far: 11 hours
(9 hours and 15 with mentor)
Activity: THE DAY OF THE TOURNAMENT!!! We set up our table, put up the sign, and had volunteers from the first team help get the field ready. Then throughout the day we went throughout the parents and informed them about the Wounded Warrior Foundation. We passed out frisbees and waters, and I kept the score book for each team. 10 12 2 and 4 were the game times each lasting about 2 hours each.
Commentary: This was so much fun, I love baseball. I am now currently exhausted from a long day out in the sun but it was totally worth it.
Time Spent: 10 hours
