Home Run: RedHawks looking to hire hundreds of Oklahomans

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma City RedHawks season is just around the corner and officials are searching for game day employees.

Mitch Stubenhofer, the Redhawks’ director of operations, said, “We’re just looking for people who love to be at the ballpark and love to interact with fans and just have fun with them.”

From the field to the food court, the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark will come alive this spring.

Organizers say ‘frontline employees,’ like greeters and ticket takers, are a huge asset to the game day experience.

Stubenhofer said, “First impression to our fans, so we want them to be fan-friendly, very personable and greet our fans as they come into the ballpark.”

Food workers are also in need to feed hungry fans with goodies like Dippin’ Dots.

Travis Johnson, the senior director of food and beverage at the ballpark, said, “Kids love it. We’re a family friendly ballpark. We have a ton of them out here every year, it’s literally our second highest seller and who doesn’t like ice cream in the summer?”

There is also a need for maintenance workers who will get the field ready for the players.

Monte McCoy said, “You’re in the sun, you’re in the elements. You might be in rain, snow and ice like last year, so you got to be prepared for that.”

The ballpark is hosting a job fair on Friday, Feb. 28 and Saturday, March 1.

Organizers say they are looking to fill about 200 seasonal positions.

Interested parties can head to the ballpark from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. either day.
