PBR Internship Program

The PBR internship provides an excellent opportunity for candidates to learn and enhance their skills in a variety of areas surrounding the game of baseball. Scouting is our forte, and while there are many opportunities to learn scouting and scouting terminology we also provide opportunities for sports marketing and sports journalism, while also receiving a platform in which interns can network with individuals from the scouting and college recruiting community. This internship will involve coverage of mostly Illinois and Wisconsin prospects, but also be involved in more national events.
