For more than 15 years, USA Baseball has provided internship opportunities for current college students and recent college graduates from across the country. Over the past few years, interns have come to USA Baseball from as far away as Stanford University (Palo Alto, Calif.) and as close as Duke University (Durham, N.C.), North Carolina State University (Raleigh, N.C.) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. USA Baseball internships offer a wide range of real-world experience and the opportunity to develop lifelong professional relationships across both professional and amateur sports.

Each intern works closely with a full-time staff member to further their skills necessary to work both in sports and for a nonprofit organization. Recent USA Baseball interns have gone on to accept full-time positions with the Olympic family and in collegiate and professional sports, including full-time jobs with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals, Washington Nationals, DC United and the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). Other interns have gone back to school for post-graduate work, four have received their law degree and 15 are now full-time USA Baseball staff members.
