Make Plays Media (MPM) is seeking Social Media and Production interns for Spring 2024.


Do you like baseball?  Would you like to work with professional athletes and learn from an experienced media team that will help you secure a job upon graduation?

MPM also produces two additional shows;

  • Fair Territory with Ken Rosenthal, giving baseball's preeminent baseball reporter and 2-time Sports Emmy Award winner a weekly platform to share his insights on the game.
