Sports Reporter jobs let you travel and watch baseball – at the same time. Who could ask for anything more? MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, is hiring freelance and full-time columnists to cover the 2006 season.
What do you do? Write columns for your team from live games around the country; report off the field news with respect to the team; non-column writing (not sure what that means); factual/intelligent reporting; analyze and provide commentary; represent the company in a professional manner (so no acting like Daryl Strawberry).
What do you need? A 4 year college degree (preferred); LOVE and knowledge of the sport; deadline experience; be a “team player,” fantastic communication and organizational skills; innovative and not afraid to share your ideas; WILLINGNESS TO TRAVEL (that’s why we’re in it, huh?); if you habla espanol, it’s a plus.
