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.  

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 scouts will have a chance to make an immediate impression on the company. Each video scout will be collecting data that is directly used by SIS clients (including major league teams) for advance scouting and evaluation purposes. Not only will the video scouts become more familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of hundreds of amateur and professional players, but they will also learn the ins and outs of the baseball statistics industry.



Former video scouts have risen through MLB front offices after getting their start reviewing two to three games per day at SIS. MLB teams frequently contact us for recommendations when they need to fill a position within their organization, and our top video scouts each year routinely land team internships and/or full-time jobs. Three former video scouts won the 2020 World Series with the Los Angeles Dodgers



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 video scouts who have branched out into a variety of areas in the sports industry.

Responsibilities:
  • Score and pitch chart MLB, MiLB and amateur games using specialized computer software
  • Check the accuracy and validity of data
  • Prepare and analyze statistical data for delivery to customers
  • Assist with the production of the 2023 Bill James Handbook
  • Provide administrative support to the full-time staff

Time Frame:
  • SIS offers two unique start dates for this position: 
    • The first begins February 7th, 2022. It will last for a period of four to five months into early June, with the possibility of extending further based on company workload and the video scout’s performance.
    • The second begins on March 7th, 2022. This will last five to six months into middle September, again with a possibility of extending longer.

Compensation:
  • A starting rate of $12 per hour and college course credit will be offered for those interested. 
  • Each video scout will also be eligible for regular raises based on performance.
  • There will also be opportunities to sign up to work overtime to earn extra income (opportunities will depend on work levels throughout the year)

Sponsorship is not available for this position. Applicants must be currently authorized to work in the United States on a full-time basis.
Sports Info Solutions uses E-Verify and is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
SIS is committed to creating a diverse environment. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
