Students in Mrs. Ehrlich's Advertising and Marketing class at Lynbrook High School took a stadium tour field trip on April 11. Mrs. Ehrlich plans this annual field trip as part of her Stadium Design Unit while the students are studying Sports & Entertainment Marketing.
The students started the day with a tour of Citi Field. Students got to see the museum and the most exclusive restaurants at the stadium. They had the privilege of touring the Mets clubhouse and offices and then held their own press conference in the press room. They also walked along the warning track to visit the dugout and the bull pen.
Next, the students enjoyed lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe at Yankee Stadium. Students got to see music memorabilia from events and concerts at the stadium. On their tour of Yankee Stadium, they visited the historical Monument Park and saw hundreds of famous artifacts in the Yankee Museum. Students also got to sit in the Yankees dugout.
Throughout the day, the students made real-world connections to concepts learned in class. It is an experience that they will remember for a lifetime!
