Available to college Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors, Muckdogs interns will have the opportunity to get directly involved and gain hands-on experience and training in various aspects of Minor League Baseball including marketing, sales, ticket operations, customer service, public relations, graphic design and many other aspects of the sports industry. The interns train directly with the front office staff to get an overview of all of the different positions. The internship requires a great amount of dedication throughout the baseball season.

During certain times of the program, the interns will be asked to complete "labor related tasks" to support the team, in these instances, interns (if agreeable) will receive minimum wage ($9.70) during that time. We do not expect it to exceed 15 hours/season.

The Muckdogs have internships starting in January and May. All of our interns learn through the end of the season (late August or early September) or until they return to college. This internship is a great start for people interested in pursuing a career in sports or the entertainment industry.
