Former Player Internship Program at Major League Baseball
The Major League Baseball Former Player Internship program introduces former Major and Minor League players to the business of baseball as they transition out of a playing role. It provides former players with the opportunity to gain work and project management experience at the Office of the Commissioner of Baseball as they pursue post-playing careers.
The internship will span over the course of 3-4 months and require a commitment of 20 hours per week, depending on departmental placement and time of year. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, allowing former players to pursue the internship based on their availability (e.g., timing of free agency, retirement, etc.).
Former players may participate in internships hosted in one or more of the following departments at the Commissioner’s Office, including, but not limited to:
- Baseball Development
- Broadcast and Production
- Business, Marketing, and Advertising
- Community and Social Responsibility
- Player Programs
- Ballpark Operations
- Diversity and Inclusion
Candidates should indicate the department(s) that they are interested in working for, but recognize that they may be placed in any one or more of the departments listed.
Please note that participation in the internship is restricted to Major or Minor League free agents or retired players who have not played affiliated baseball for two years or less.
