Florida League Internship Program

Each summer, the Florida League gives the opportunity for 30 or more college students to gain valuable experience working in the sports industry. The Florida League offers several different types of internships in the spring and throughout the summer season. Interns are typically in college or recently graduated.

Each summer, the Florida League chooses the top interns who perform at a high standard throughout the year. These interns not only excel in their specific field, but are able and willing to help out with other tasks for both their team and others throughout the league. Each winner receives a monetary bonus at the end of the year, as well as special recognition before the Florida League championship game at Tropicana Field. The award is named for Florida League founder Sara Whiting, whose favorite part of every summer was getting to know the interns and teaching them how to be successful as they pursue a career in sports.
