Major League Baseball Transportation
As a transportation volunteer you will welcome Major League Baseball Guests, VIPs and staff to events throughout the city. Volunteers will not be drivers, but will be present at the transportation pick up/drop off locations and welcome guests to their final destinations.
MLB Pre-Game Ceremonial Rehearsals
Major League Baseball and the Cleveland Indians need help preparing for the on-field pre-game ceremonies for the All-Star Game and Home Run Derby. Volunteers will be asked to help with the timings and the field visuals. Volunteers will be stand-ins for players participating in the game. This opportunity allows volunteers to be their favorite All-Star and stand in the same spot the MLB All-Stars will prior to the game. This role is days prior to the game and will not require volunteers for the All-Star Game or Home Run Derby.
