    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Ripken Baseball (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities within the company. Always busy and a lot of work to do.

    Cons

    Parts of the week are extremely busy, and others it seems like there is nothing to do.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more adequately for traveling and Chevy tour. Always had to buy my own food which costs sometimes double of what I was actually making.

    Pros

    Everyone who works there is very nice. Working games can be a lot of fun. There are opportunities to help with other Ripken Baseball events.

    Cons

    Working games it can get very hot but it is manageable. I have no real cons.

  3. "Tournament Operations (now called Baseball Operations"

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

    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.


  4. "Very time consuming and labor intensive"
