If you want a career in sports, you need one specific skill to be successful. You have to be able to sell. Specifically, you have to be able to sell tickets. You won’t find a better opportunity to learn the right way to sell and be considered for a role with the fastest growing company in MiLB, Diamond Baseball Holdings (DBH), than the DBH Sports Sales Academy.
DBH currently owns 17 MiLB clubs and is growing. With that impressive growth, the demand for top talent in ticket sales roles is our most critical need. DBH teams are located across the country and are the perfect place to springboard a career in the sports industry. Curriculum will include training on the sales process: appointment setting, perfecting your pitch, overcoming objections, networking, referrals, etc. In addition, participants will receive guidance on resume creation and interview skills to be career-ready upon completion of the program.
The invite-only DBH Sports Sales Academy offers candidates the opportunity to be taught by some of the best sports-sales trainers and managers in the industry. Participation is limited for the exclusive, intensive academy. To earn an invitation, you must complete a rigorous interview and sales aptitude testing process.
There are currently multiple full-time members of our sales staff who were hired after completing one of our past sales academies. They performed admirably over the course of the academy and were offered a position with one of our teams.
In addition to any potential opportunities with one of our DBH teams, you will also receive guidance on resume preparation and interview training. It is typical that over 75% of participants in our academy are working in sports within 90 days, and our attendees for the 2023 DBH Sports Sales Academy will be no different. The DBH Sports Sales Academy is an outstanding experience to have on your resume.
What to expect:
We will teach you to make an impact.
- Premier training and real-world practice: Candidates go through a sales “boot camp” that our sales teams attend on a yearly basis.

Specifically, candidates will go through real-life exercises on how to prospect, make appointments, learn a version of our sales pitch, overcome objections, and close business.
- Executive Feedback: Candidates will be graded as they make calls and presentations throughout the three-day session. Executives and sales managers with DBH teams will review each candidate and provide ongoing feedback throughout the Sales Academy.
