Inside the Voyage: A Suite Career Comes to a Close

Posted: Updated:

"My M-O is to make people laugh, make them feel welcome," said Will Sterling.  

If you get the chance to watch a voyagers game from the suites, you'll be greeted by just that. Meet Will Sterling; the man in charge of bringing smiles and great service to his customers.

"I'm a happy-go-lucky person, I like trying to keep a smile on my face 24-7," said Sterling.

"This is one of our main attractions of our ball park, so it's kind of a high-quality place, it's a fun place to be in." 
Over the course of 16 years will has learned that baseball is way more than just a job for him.

"Baseball is a good activity for me. It keeps me out of trouble, it keeps me wise, it keeps me tame. Coming to watch baseball, and it's America's past time, it's actually my past time too cause it keeps me motivated, it keeps me hyped when I come into the stadium," he said. 

But after 16 summers, he's decided that this season will be his last.
"I've said it for the last two seasons, that this'll be my last season. It's becoming a younger generation here. I done gave my due time to the City, to the baseball park.You know, I just think it's time for me to move on and do some other things with my summers," said Sterling.

"It probably won't hit me until the playoff game to be honest. It hasn't really sunk in yet. Will I shed a tear? I won't lie, I probably will, because this has been ho me every summer for the last sixteen summers," Sterling said.  

After making countless memories, will says he can describe his experience with the organization in two words.

"Totally awesome, or I could say truly blessed. Either one of those statements would be A-Plus in my book," said Sterling.
