Julia Janssen

I have been working in baseball for six seasons and I love it. Every day is a little different and challenging. I truly enjoy creating an experience for fans to relax and enjoy themselves. It's a compliment when someone chooses to spend their free time in your facility. My goal is to make sure that person has a good time at the game regardless of the score.

I joined the Lugnuts after working for two different minor league teams in Iowa and Wyoming. (To get anywhere in the baseball world, you have to be willing to relocate.) The Lugnuts have an incredible brand and a great reputation so it was an easy decision to come here when the job opened up.

Our Marketing Department covers a broad spectrum of needs, from donation requests to Guest Services and advertising. I specifically oversee all of the entertainment in the stadium and digital media efforts. In a typical day I'll design graphics for the videoboard, pick new music to play during the game, design new signs for the stadium, and keep our social media efforts active. You can check out our Facebook profile ( or Twitter account ( to see my daily updates.
