About the Fellowship Program

 

 

LEGACY

Baseball is a historic game consisting of the world's very best players, whose collective background is as diverse as any other group of athletes in professional sport, continually building the National Pastime's unmatched legacy of iconic on-field performances while creating its unquestionable mystique.

Success on the field is not measured by a singular measurement of perfection, but rather how a team of individuals with different skills comes together to achieve a common goal. Each and every day, teams seek the best talent in order to stay ahead of the curve in the ultra-competitive landscape of the Major Leagues.

Major League Baseball understands that we must apply that same approach to our front offices in order to secure the game's next generation of leadership. With that in mind, we are proud to launch the inaugural MLB Diversity Fellowship Program.

 

WHAT IS THE MLB DIVERSITY FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM?

This latest venture in Baseball's efforts to competitively recruit the most talented individuals and brightest young minds entering the workforce will provide the opportunity for young, diverse professionals to experience front office positions that have been traditionally influential in baseball operations decisions.

The MLB Diversity Fellowship Program will allow us to stay true to the ideals of equal opportunity while solidifying Major League Baseball as an organization of choice for all recent graduates, including people of color and women.

This distinct opportunity will place candidates in entry-level roles within one of the MLB Clubs and MLB's Central Office. The Club-based program will be an 18-to-24-month commitment in a front office or baseball operations role at one of the MLB Clubs around the country participating in the MLB Diversity Fellowship Program.

Additionally, Major League Baseball will offer three entry-level fellowships with a rotational, three-year phase opportunity to: (1) two years in Baseball Operations, focusing on International Operations & Scouting, Umpiring and On-field Rules & Regulations; and (2) one year working within the League Economics Department.
