    Want an exciting summer covering Major League Baseball? MLB.com offers 30 reporting internships to aspiring sportswriters. These internships are designed to give associates the full range of experiences that come with covering a professional team. Each associate will work closely with a site reporter to give visitors to a team’s Web site all the information they need to follow the team from Opening Day to season’s end. Each Major League team will have one associate.

    We are looking for talented college juniors and seniors, as well as graduate students, for our 2011 Summer Internship Program. If you are graduating in December 2010, you are still eligible. All applications must be postmarked by Nov. 30, 2010. We will make our selections by the end of January.

    We expect each intern to spend a minimum of 10 weeks in the program, dates determined by a person’s college schedule. The more flexible an applicant is in terms of which Major League city he or she can work in, the better the person’s chances of being selected. Interns will be paid $500 per week.

    Applicants should submit a resume, 5 to 10 published articles, a list of references and a 750-word essay on why MLB.com should select you? Your clips ideally will show a variety of work, including game stories, previews and features.

    MLB.com also will be offering a limited number of internships for copy editors/producers.

    Associates are responsible for arranging their own housing and transportation.

    Please mail all internship applications to:

    Bill Hill
    Assistant Managing Editor/MLB.com
    Attn: Internship Application
    14825 N. 97th Place
    Scottsdale, AZ 85260

    I've heard some of these positions have already been filled, even with the deadline of Nov. 30.

    There are always a few returning interns who switch markets, so that's to be expected.
