Interning with the BlueClaws was a fun and unique learning experience. Prior to this, I had no experience in the sports industry, but the organization gave me the chance to showcase my skills and develop new skills along the way. I was given the opportunity to assist in unique tasks and participate in events that took place inside and outside the stadium. The front office staff are a friendly group of people that were more than willing to provide guidance and assistance when needed. The BlueClaws helped me to take the first step towards working in this industry and I 100% recommend them to anyone who is also looking to enter into the sports industry.

Interning at the BlueClaws was a unique opportunity that showed me to the inner workings of Minor League Baseball and provided me with the tools to propel my growth in the sports industry. The BlueClaws Internship Program is a great way for students who are interested in sports to be introduced to the industry.

Overall, this internship experience was awesome! I learned so much, made so many great connections and relationships, and gained the necessary knowledge needed to help me in my future endeavors. From learning new software programs like Photoshop and Digideck to taking pictures and posting on social media, to taking part in marketing and corporate sponsorship meetings and events, the internship helped me learn the skills needed to be successful in the sports marketing field. Not only did I learn so much, but I had so much fun along the way and will never forget the relationships I built with the front office of the Lakewood BlueClaws!
