It is our goal to provide you with hands-on experience and
knowledge useful in competing for jobs in the baseball industry,
beginning with Minor League 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.
Timber Rattlers seasonal internships typically start during the
spring semester and extend through the end of the season (late
August). The baseball season officially begins in early April.
Qualifications are based on ability, desire, work ethic and a
commitment to make the most of the experience. Timber Rattler
