Why we want you: You’re a College or University Junior or Senior, within 3 semesters of graduating. You need an internship for academic credit, and you’re pursuing a degree in Sports or Event Management, Business, or a related field. You work hard and play nice, and appreciate a good joke.

We provide internship positions that are meaningful and compatible with education and aspirations. We work very hard but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Plus, you also get a monthly stipend, free baseball tickets & food, a free health club membership, and opportunities to get discounted or free tickets to various shows and events in Michigan. We’re also pretty great people to work with.
What you’ll do: You'll learn all aspects of the ticketing department, including box office operations, group and season ticket sales, hospitality, and theme nights to enrich the ballpark experience for fans, sponsors and the community. You’ll learn the fundamentals of selling in the sport industry. You’ll gain knowledge in most other departments while working under the mentorship of other departmental managers. You’ll also probably participate in some silly promotions in front of thousands of fans, and have a lot of fun doing it.

Non-event days are generally M-F 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. Event days, the day generally begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends after the event. You need a valid driver’s license and a great attitude.
