WHO ARE THE ERIE SEAWOLVES?
The Erie SeaWolves are the Double-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. The team is owned and operated by At Bat Group, LLC. Over 250 SeaWolves have played Major League Baseball including Justin Verlander, Nick Castellanos, Eugenio Suarez, Curtis Granderson, and Casey Mize. Erie is located in northwest Pennsylvania, conveniently between Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Buffalo. The SeaWolves play their home games at UPMC Park, just 10 blocks from Lake Erie. Since 2019, over $16 million in stadium upgrades have been introduced including a new 1,550 sq. ft. team store, a 175-guest stadium club, two new Daktronics LED video displays, and renovated suites, restrooms, concession stands, and party spaces.
WHAT IS THE OPPORTUNITY?
The SeaWolves are looking for two creative, motivated students who are interested in earning credit hours by completing a seasonal learning experience in game day entertainment, marketing, and communications. Video production and graphics interns will be mentored by the Director of Entertainment and gain experience shooting/editing videos, live sports production, creating video board graphics, web content, and marketing materials. Interns also will use professional production equipment (cameras, Click Effects, Show Control, and Tricaster), learn best practices, and participate in delivering the game presentation.
All college majors are welcome to apply. This full-time Internship opportunity will begin in March 2022 and conclude when the season ends in September 2022. Schedule flexibility is available during the final few weeks of the spring semester and the first few weeks of the fall semester. Experience with Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro, & After Effects) is preferred.
Minor League Baseball can be a fun and rewarding career path, but it requires dedication and flexibility as event schedules dictate the team's hours of operation:
March 16-September 11, 2022:
- Game Days: Report time until an hour after the game.
- Non-Game Days: 9:00a until 3:00p (Monday-Friday); flexible hours are available.
- *Some exceptions may apply; schedule subject to change
$1,000/month stipend (prorated during partial months)
