Major League Baseball, through the Diversity Pipeline Program, is proud to sponsor a select group of qualifying candidates to attend the 12th Annual SABR Analytics Conference (Society for American Baseball Research), to be held March 10-12, 2023. The SABR Analytics Conference is a three-day event featuring guest speakers, panels, and presentations on the impact of analytics on the game of baseball and features the Diamond Dollars Case Competition. Attendees will also have an opportunity to participate in skill development sessions and networking opportunities with current MLB and Club employees.
This year’s event will be in a hybrid format (both in-person and virtual) so candidates who are interested in attending in-person will be responsible for covering their own travel expenses to Phoenix (flight, hotel, meals, etc.). In addition to the conference, in-person attending candidates will be given an opportunity to visit with MLB organizations (TBD) during Spring Training in Phoenix to gain career insights and network with working professionals. As an additional resource thanks to our partnership with SABR, all candidates selected by Major League Baseball will also receive a complimentary Rapsodo Certification course ($395 value).
We are seeking qualified candidates from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds interested in careers in baseball operations such as Salary Arbitration and Major League Operations, Research & Development, Scouting, Player Development, and Sport Science.
Undergraduate students, graduate students, and recent graduates are eligible to participate.
Individuals with studies in business, computer science, statistics and economics are strongly encouraged to apply.
Former professional players with interest in transitioning back into professional baseball are also strongly encouraged to apply.
Prospective candidates must submit the following materials to receive full consideration:
Personal essay (500 words or less)
Space is limited. The application deadline is February, 15, 2023 (later applicants are still encouraged to apply until capacity is filled).
