Coach Internship Program
Once again, the Office of the Commissioner of Baseball (MLB) will be conducting the international coaching internship program. This program is designed to allow a select group of coaches from different countries to be taught by professional instructors who are employed by MLB teams.
Coaches selected by your federation will work and learn directly from MLB team instructors during this development program. The selected coaches will be housed in the facilities of MLB teams in the Dominican Republic. MLB teams are responsible for accommodation and meals during the program, but your federation should pay for the plane ticket of your coach from your respective country to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
We ask that you recommend coaches that are available starting approximately May 1 for a period of at least one month to participate in the program.
It is important to take into consideration that each of the coaches recommended by you will fill out a Background Check form, which will be reviewed by our office so we can let you know as soon as possible if that coach may or may not participate in the program. We advise that you do not purchase any airline tickets prior to approval from MLB, as MLB will not reimburse any expenses incurred in the event that a coach is not approved.
We look forward to your response
