BW Sport Management Students Shatter Records

April 7, 2014

The 2014 Spring BW Sport Management Capstone class shattered the record for most tickets sold and revenue generated for the Cleveland Indians Collegiate Tickets Sales program in their first year of participation.

The Capstone class sold 1,225 tickets and generated $20,154 in revenue, more than doubling the previous record of 545 tickets sold. The class bettered eight other schools, raising twice as much as their nearest scholastic competitor, University of Findlay.

The four class leaders who sold the most tickets - Joseph Williamson '15, Kevin Moriarity-Napoli '14, Nick Ksenich '14, and Paul Liotta '14 - earned the opportunity to present their sales tactics to a panel of Indians front office executives and to attend Saturday's home game as guests of the team.

Williamson, the individual sales leader who sold 366 tickets and raised $6,584 in revenue by himself, had what he termed "the great honor" of pitching the first ball at Saturday's Indians game. Also, he will have the opportunity to interview for a position with the Cleveland Indians and will receive four club level seats to an Indians game of his choosing.
