Southern NH Jewish Men's Club Zoom Breakfast - "The Business of Baseball, Building Polar Park"

Sunday, September 19, 2021 13 Tishrei 5782

9:30 AM - 11:30 AM

“The Business of Baseball:  Building Polar Park

will be the topic discussed by Matt Levin, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of the Worcester Red Sox on Sunday, September 19th, at 9:30 AM, LIVE via ZOOM presented by the Southern New Hampshire Jewish Men’s Club.  Join the meeting at 9:00 AM for "Schmooze Time".

Growing up just north of Chicago, Matt became very interested in America’s pastime.  He and his father eventually visited every major league (and some minor league) baseball parks in the country.  “It was the perfect father-son event,” said the brother of three sisters, who calls himself a proud Conservative Jew.  Matt’s journey started when he arrived at Boston University where after his fourth application, he secured a marketing internship with the Boston Red Sox.  After four years working in Boston, Matt transitioned south to join the PawSox in early 2016, working with Larry Lucchino just as the club decided to relocate to Worcester.  Matt observed that one of Larry’s biggest pet peeves was fans waiting in line and missing part of the game, whether checking in at the park or trying to pick up food or drinks at the concession stands.

Thanks to Matt, Polar Park has become the first professional sports venue to provide autonomous checkout for concessions.  The fans just download an app, grab whatever they want and go to their seats.  The app automatically knows what they have taken and handles the payment.  Speaking of food, the WooSox Market at Polar Park features among its menu items, Hebrew National Hot Dogs and other foods provided by The Butcherie, a relationship that Matt and his wife secured after moving to Coolidge Corner, just steps from the kosher market and Fenway Park.

Matt’s conversation will discuss the story and process of the development of Polar Park, reviewing a key element, the WooSox Market, and the kosher offerings throughout the ballpark.  Matt will discuss the latest technologies implemented at Polar Park and how they have helped the Worcester Red Sox learn more about their customers and create an improved fan experience.

Matt’s presentation will be followed by an open question and answer session.

The Southern New Hampshire Jewish Men’s Club is proud to sponsor Matt Levin’s presentation which will start off with “Schmooze Time” from 9:00 am to 9:30 AM. This presentation is open to the public but advance registration is required. Please contact Paul Moverman at president@snhjmc.org to confirm your registration.
