    Tournament Operations (now called Baseball Operations

    Former Employee - Tournament Operations Intern in Aberdeen, MD
    Former Employee - Tournament Operations Intern in Aberdeen, MD

    I worked at Ripken Baseball

    Pros

    This was a very fun internship. The first-third of the internship was all hosting clinics around the MidWest, and the remaining two-thirds of the internship was devoted to operating the tournaments and running camps. Teaching baseball fundamentals to kids is a great experience, and you're almost always outside which I enjoyed.

    Cons

    Long and irregular hours. You'll have random days off during the week but will also likely work at least one day on the weekend. You'll be grinding during the camp season. Compensation could have also been better. Only two cons I can think of, but the basis of the job makes up for these cons.

    Pros

    This was truly the best job that I've had. They truly welcome you into Ripken as a family and they are willing to help you in any way possible. I had fun and lesrned an immense amount while working there.

    Cons

    There truly were no cons to me working at The Ripken Experience for the reasoning that it was perfect for my situation. I needed a sport related internship, which is exactly what I got. I perfected so many skills.

    Upper management does an amazing job to make sure this experience is the best experience anyone can get.

    I have been working at Ripken Baseball

    Pros

    Great brand name if you are looking to stay employed in the Baltimore area. Family friendly environment and given a good amount of flexibility.

    Cons

    Small organization and slow growth so limited growth potential. Very low salaries and expected to put in extra hours without being asked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to ask employees to go above and beyond for low pay, more appreciation or benefits should be given. Create a career enhancement ladder so that young employees feel they can move up within the organization.

    I worked at Ripken Baseball

    Pros

    If you are looking to work in Baseball there is no better organization or name to get in with than Ripken. They own a lot of teams and are always looking to expand.

    Cons

    You have to be prepared to work a lot of hours if you are on the team side, but it should be a positive if you are really looking to get into Baseball for a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
