Major League Baseball seeks to be both an employer and sport of choice for all by incorporating a diverse and inclusive meritocracy throughout the culture of baseball, particularly in the business decision-making and personnel processes.
We strive to promote and support an inclusive environment that proactively leverages the diversity of our workforce to enhance MLB's businesses and brands around the world.
Diversity in Ticket Sales Training Program
The MLB on Deck Diversity in Sales program is designed to provide participants a jumpstart in their sales careers through a series of training sessions and consideration for entry-level sales opportunities across Major League Baseball (MLB) and Minor League Baseball (MiLB) entities. With a focus on engaging with underrepresented participants, MLB aims to grow the diversity and visibility of these groups within the industry, by placing individuals who successfully complete this program directly into hiring pipelines with clubs.
Participants will take part in an eight-week-long program aimed at providing the basic tools, knowledge and understanding of the ticket sales world, giving them a distinct advantage in the interview process for entry-level sales positions. Participants will attend weekly virtual training sessions led by members of the MLB Ticketing Department in addition to sales executives from across MLB. By the conclusion of the program, participants will be placed in the pipeline for all MLB and MiLB Clubs to access and engage with when looking to fill new entry-level sales positions.
Graduates of the program have secured positions with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Atlanta Braves, Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Mets, New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies, as well as other teams and companies in different sectors of the sports industry.
The MLB Diversity Fellowship Program is a new approach to expand the talent pool of future industry leaders. The program is open to people of color and women, a direct and dedicated initiative to change the pipeline and include more people of color and women. The program provides the opportunity for young, diverse professionals to experience front office positions that have been traditionally influential in baseball operations decisions.
As part of MLB's commitment to hiring top diverse talent for internships, Virtual Interview Day is a one-day opportunity for applicants to digitally record video responses to pre-recorded interview questions that will be shared with any MLB entity that they choose.
