Perfect Game Incorporated is seeking a Scouting Intern for our Spring season!  Perfect Game first opened for business over 20 years ago.  Since then, Perfect Game has continued to grow and expand throughout the United States. 

Our mission is to promote the game of baseball now and in the future by hosting the highest quality amateur baseball events while providing meaningful opportunities and information to players, families, MLB organizations, college coaches and fans.  Perfect Game is the premier provider of amateur baseball events, hosting both travel team tournaments and individual player showcases throughout the country.  Our online database, scouting reports and player rankings have proven to be a valuable resource for all college coaches and MLB scouts.

This position will assist the National Scouting Coordinator in evaluating, identifying, and promoting players during the 2023 PG Iowa Spring League. The Spring League enters its 28th year of providing the best opportunity for Iowa's top high-school talent. The Iowa Select Spring League allows the top players in Iowa as well as other top organizations in the Midwest the chance to compete at a high-level for six weeks in March and April. Since the league's inception in 1996, all but one of the players from Iowa drafted in MLB's First-Year Player Draft has played in the Perfect Game Iowa Spring League, with hundreds more committing to play at the collegiate level. 

This position will take in-game video of prospects and post them to Twitter as seen fit by the National Scouting Coordinator.  You will also produce daily scouting recaps in conjunction with the National Scouting Coordinator. You will play an important role in identifying potential prospects for Perfect Game's national and state rankings, as well as provide exposure for the players who are competing in the Spring League.

Whether you are a baseball enthusiast or simply want an exciting opportunity with a fast-growing company, this internship with Perfect Game may be just what you are looking for to gain valuable experience and help you further your career.

Opportunities available to continue the role into the Summer/Fall, as well as gain further experience and responsibilities as your supervisor sees fit.

  • Assist Perfect Game in identifying the top prospects in each graduating class at tournaments

  • Must be able to navigate social media and other video applications (like Slate, iMovie, etc.) with relative ease
