Arlington, Texas— The Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation has officially opened applications for the 2022 Charley Pride Fellowship Program. In its second year, the program will again see five college students from diverse backgrounds spend their summer working in the Texas Rangers front office for this unique internship program.

Prominent Dallas businessman Roland Parrish and his Parrish Charitable Foundation are partnering with the Rangers Foundation in the Pride Fellowship Program for the second consecutive year.

“Last year’s inaugural class of Charley Pride Fellows proved how successful this program can be through their outstanding commitment to working in the Texas Rangers organization," said Neil Leibman, Texas Rangers President, Business Operations and Chief Operating Officer, and Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation Chairman. "Many of them have already achieved great success and received full-time job offers to continue their careers in the sports industry. In fact, Kendall Coleman accepted an offer within the Rangers own baseball operations department.

“We are looking forward to welcoming a new group of incredible Fellows who will surely leave a lasting impact on our front office.”

Created in honor of late country music star and close friend of the Texas Rangers organization, Charley Pride, this program aims to build a launching pad for students from diverse backgrounds looking to gain experience in a baseball front office.

“I will forever be in debt to the Texas Rangers for giving me this incredible career opportunity in sports,” said Ashley Go, former Charley Pride Fellow. “This Fellowship not only introduced me to the most supportive people, but it also gave me valuable experiences that don’t come often in life. I am grateful to have learned more about baseball, but more importantly learned how many different and amazing people it takes to put together a successful organization.”

The Foundation will hire, train and support five Fellows as they rotate through three front office departments. Fellows will select their departmental rotation based on their interests. These students will gain valuable skills during the 10-week program that will benefit them should they choose to pursue a career in sports or any other industry.
