Meet... Ben Owen
Meet Your Lansing Lugnuts Front Office Member, Day Eleven.
Position: This is my first season with the Lansing Lugnuts. On non-gamedays, I work with the marketing staff and assist with promotions. I also will be the person who makes some of the in game videos that play on the scoreboard. During games, I will be helping put videos up on the scoreboard, capture and play replays. I’m very excited for this season to start; this is my first job coming out of college and I’m learning a ton.
Education: Michigan State University Grad ’12, Media Arts and Technology
Following My Passions: I figured out in high school that I wanted to go into video. In the beginning I felt like I wanted to go to Hollywood and make big movies. However, I soon found this to be a career path that I didn’t like. Away from video, my biggest passion is sports. I began working with Big Ten Network Student U while in college, which allowed me to gain experience in broadcasting live sports. I was even lucky enough to assist and observe several ESPN and Big Ten Network productions.
Favorite Teams: I’m obviously a huge Michigan State fan. My family is from Ohio so I’ve been raised to be a Cleveland Indians fan. Living in Michigan, I have a growing rooting interest in the Tigers.
