With the start of MLB spring training comes the inevitable feelings of excitement for the season to officially start, which happens in late March. But what’s not often thought of is the behind-the-scenes effort that goes into staffing for Opening Day to ensure fans have the time of their lives.  

The Importance of Staffing for Opening Day

Opening Day isn’t just another game on the calendar — it’s a monumental occasion that sets the tone for the entire season. From the players on the field to the staff working tirelessly behind the scenes, every aspect must be meticulously planned and executed to ensure a smooth and successful event. Proper staffing for Opening Day is at the heart of this preparation, playing a pivotal role in delivering a memorable experience for fans and stakeholders alike. 

At the forefront of the staffing lineup are the stadium personnel. From ticket takers and ushers to security guards and concession stand workers, these individuals form the backbone of the game-day experience. Their presence ensures that fans can enter and navigate the stadium safely and efficiently, allowing them to focus on enjoying the game without any unnecessary disruptions or delays. 

Furthermore, appropriate staffing for Opening Day is essential for maintaining the overall atmosphere and ambiance. Each member of the staff contributes to the magic of the occasion. Their enthusiasm and dedication help create a sense of camaraderie and excitement that resonates throughout the stadium, uniting fans in their love for the game. 

LGC has been fortunate to partner with stadiums and staffing for Opening Day throughout our two decades in the industry. This is a highly sought-after shift within our workforce, meaning we can provide all the employees necessary for successful operations. But not only that, partnering with LGC means removing an often time-consuming and costly process: hiring and staffing your own employees. The temporary workforce that LGC provides brings flexibility to game day operations that allows for employees to work solely on Opening Day, or throughout the season.  

By properly investing in staffing properly for Opening Day, organizations can ensure that they create an unforgettable experience that fans have come to cherish for generations. Rather than delegating the time-consuming tasks to HR, allow a trusted partner like LGC to hit a home run.
