“An understanding of baseball is a plus“
A reminder to all future applicants for jobs in baseball. The best path to these jobs is having a strong technical background in an unrelated field and then transferring into the same job, but with baseball data instead.
Don’t pursue or bother with seasonal internships, especially minor league ones. While you very well could land a full-time job, the odds are so low. And you have little time to master the skills you need for FT work at those positions.
This is how all teams view it. They want all of this experience, and if you like baseball, then it might be an edge when they finally make their decision.
