Facility Operations/Event Staff: Grounds Crew/Turf Management
Thank you for your interest in an internship with the ­­­­­­­­­­­Marion Baseball Team. It is our goal to provide you with hands-on experience and knowledge useful in competing for jobs in the sports industry, beginning with Summer Collegiate 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. We want you to play an essential role into bringing a new one-of-a-kind fan experience to Southern Illinois.
The Stadium Operations internship runs from mid-May to late August. The summer collegiate season officially begins in early June.  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 baseball.  
­­­­­Stadium Operations interns receive a TBD salary for the summer 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 Rent One Park.  Days off are granted 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.  Our hope is that our interns use their experience with the Marion Baseball Team to go on to bigger and better things internally, with another team, or in a desired field of interest.
