Baseball Operations Internship:

The Los Angeles Angels Baseball Operations department is seeking passionate individuals to join our team for the 2020 season. Applicants can come from any discipline or background, as long as you have the curiosity, open-mindedness, and perseverance to take on difficult problems.
As a Baseball Operations Intern, you will be fully immersed in our department, and given the resources to learn, grow, and develop over the course of the season. Our goal is to find people with the necessary skills and traits to become long-term members of the department.

  • Contribute to the ML advance scouting process
  • Assist with preparation for the 2020 MLB Draft
  • Develop visualizations and other mechanisms for communicating information to Baseball Operations personnel

Physical Demands:

In addition to handling the essential functions of our internship, we desire counter-intuitive thinkers who will take initiative and explore new research opportunities. Previous interns have developed ideas that have changed the way the organization approaches important challenges and we hope you will bring the same mindset with you.

The Angels believe that diversity contributes to a more enriched collective perspective and a better decision-making process. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
