Title: 2021 Baseball Video Editing Internship
About Us: 
Sports Info Solutions (SIS) opened its doors back in 2002 and has been on the leading edge of the advanced statistical study of baseball and football. Formerly, known as Baseball Info Solutions (BIS), the company’s mission is to provide the most accurate, in-depth, timely professional baseball and football data, including cutting-edge research and analysis, striving to educate professional teams and the public about analytics.  

We started our football operation in 2015 and have seen exponential growth over the past five years. SIS employs a staff of expert full time baseball and football personnel and a workforce of highly trained video scouts who conduct several passes of each game, recording everything from basic box score data to more intricate data not seen in the box score.


Position Overview: 
SIS is looking for highly motivated individuals with a desire to work in the baseball industry. Video Editors will have a chance to make an immediate impression on the company and clients during their time with us. Each Video Editor will be using video that is directly used by SIS clients (including major league teams) for advance scouting and evaluation purposes. Not only will the Video Editors become more familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of hundreds minor league players, but they will have the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the baseball statistics industry.


We take pride in making our internships great development opportunities for those looking to get their start in baseball. In addition to gaining invaluable experience reviewing thousands of players across different levels, we offer introductory classes that cover creating scouting reports and using the database management language, SQL. We also provide insight and advice from previous SIS Employees who have branched out into a variety of areas in the sports industry.
