Highlights, during Venuto’s tenure with Ripken Baseball, include leading the Aberdeen IronBirds’ Ticketing Department to sell out every single game for three straight seasons.  Her efforts helped cement a culture that led to ten straight years of consecutive sellouts.  Venuto created, established, and grew the Ripken Stadium Events Department.  Ripken Events became an industry leader in this non-traditional revenue sector.
