All requests for credentials should be made by the assigning editor or news/sports director online at least 48 hours prior to the event here.

Credentials are issued to working members of the press; no spouses, guests, or children of press members will be issued passes, and credentials are not transferable.

  • Select only members that are in need of credentialing for the events specified.
  • The MLB credentialing site is time sensitive; if you are inactive on the site for longer than a few minutes you will be asked to log in again. Therefore, be sure to save all of you work when editing or applying for credentials.
  • If you feel you have reached a page in error, you may click cancel at the bottom of the screen at anytime to return to the previous screen.
  • The credentialing window will be open 4 hours prior to first pitch. If an earlier entrance to the park is necessary, please contact the media relations department to make arrangements.
  • Media are to sign MLB credential terms and conditions form upon receipt of credentials.
