Dear Applicant:
 
Thank you for your interest in an internship with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.  
 
It is our goal to provide you with hands-on experience and knowledge useful in competing for jobs in the baseball industry, beginning with Minor League Baseball.  We will also work with you to fulfill requirements for college credit if necessary.  Our internships are a great learning opportunity where previous experience is not always necessary.
 
Timber Rattlers seasonal internships typically start during the spring semester (January/February start date strongly preferred) and extend through the end of the season (late August to early September).  The baseball season officially begins in early April.  Qualifications are based on ability, desire, work ethic and a commitment to make the most of the experience.  Internships are geared to educate about the entire business of Minor League Baseball.  
 
Timber Rattler interns receive a salary of $1200/month and are expected to maintain a very challenging schedule throughout the internship. Interns are expected to be at all home games as well as play key roles in executing special events taking place at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium.  Comp time can be earned throughout the season to help alleviate the challenging schedule. 
 
If a career in sports is what you desire, an internship with a sports team can be a great benefit.  Not only is it an important step professionally, but it’s also a great way to build relationships and network in a fun, fast-paced and exciting environment.  Past interns have used their experience with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers to go on to bigger and better things internally, with another team or in a desired field of interest.
