NEWBURGH, N.Y. -

Mount Saint Mary College students, staff, and faculty learned the ins and outs of Yankee Stadium recently. 

 

Just in time for the return of the Boys of Summer, nearly 30 students, faculty, and staff from Mount Saint Mary College enjoyed a tour of Yankee Stadium.

The students, part of assistant business professor Scott Russell’s Sports Facility Management course, learned firsthand how the stadium adheres to the Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines.

“It was a good hands-on experience,” said Jake Kosack of Hopewell Junction, N.Y., a business major with a concentration in sports management. “When you’re dealing with a Major League stadium like Yankee Stadium, you get a full grasp of the standards they have to reach. Having the opportunity to visit Yankee Stadium is something I’m very grateful for.”

The trip was arranged by Russell with aid from Kathleen O’Keefe, associate director of the Mount’s Career Center.
