Want an exciting summer covering Major League Baseball? MLB.com offers 30 reporting internships to aspiring sportswriters. These internships are designed to give associates the full range of experiences that come with covering a professional team. Each associate will work closely with a site reporter to give visitors to a team’s Web site all the information they need to follow the team from Opening Day to season’s end. Each Major League team will have one associate. Students who are currently juniors or seniors, as well as graduate students, are eligible for our 2018 Summer Internship Program. If you are graduating in December 2017, you are still eligible. All applications must be postmarked by Nov. 25, 2017. We will make our selections by the end of January.

We expect each intern to spend a minimum of 10 weeks in the program, dates determined by a person’s college schedule. Interns who have graduated generally are allowed to work until the end of the season. Interns will be paid $12.50 per hour and work an average of 40 hours per week. Applicants should submit a resume, 5 to 10 published articles, a list of 3 or 4 references and a 750-word essay on why you should be selected. Your clips ideally will show a variety of work with a special emphasis on game coverage. Previous experience covering a beat is preferred. Associates are responsible for arranging their own housing and transportation.

 Please mail all internship applications to:
