The Ticket Sales internship runs from January through early September. The baseball season officially begins in early April. Qualifications are based on ability, desire, work ethic and a commitment to make the most of the experience. Internships are geared to educate about the entire business of Minor League Baseball.
Timber Rattler interns receive a salary of $1200/month plus commission and are expected to maintain a very challenging schedule throughout the internship. Interns are expected to be at all home games as well as play key roles in executing special events taking place at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium. Comp time can be earned throughout the season to help alleviate the challenging schedule.
If a career in sports is what you desire, an internship with a sports team can be a great benefit. Not only is it an important step professionally, but it’s also a great way to build relationships and network in a fun, fast paced and exciting environment. Past interns have used their experience with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers to go on to bigger and better things internally, with another team or in a desired field of interest.
