What our past trainees have said about the program:
"The trainee program was simply the best opportunity for me to get into baseball. Since I graduated college in the May, there weren't many ways for me to start a career in sports. The D-Braves trainee program was a perfect bridge into my professional career as I gained real world experience and was treated as a valuable asset to the team. As the media trainee, I made real strides in improving my writing ability, practiced professionalism with members of the media, and improved my craft in social and digital media." - Stephen Brunson, 2018 Media Trainee
"I had a great experience as a Sales & Operations Trainee with the D-Braves. I was given the opportunity to learn about and participate in many facets of the running of the team, as well as learning a great deal about minor league baseball in general. I also got to work with and get to know a lot of wonderful people from the greater Danville community. I'll always be grateful to the D-Braves for taking a chance on a non-traditional trainee, and for giving me an opportunity to pursue by dream of working in professional baseball." - Sandy McKenzie, 2018 Sales & Operations Trainee
If you are interested in working for the Danville Braves as a member of the gameday staff, we will be posting an application for the 2019 season in the coming months.
