Whitecaps intern positions are rewarding and fun.
The Whitecaps are accepting applications for interns in the 2020 season now. We have a number of game day intern and 2 media positions available. See descriptions below.
If you'd like to work hard, for free, at an exciting summer enterprise in the 2020 summer season on Cape Cod email Paige Ferraguto, our VP for Game Day Operations. See descriptions below.
Game Day Operations Interns
Love baseball? Want a career in Sports Management? Developing skills in Communication, Public Relations, Business, or some other appropriate field? Why not spend the summer at the ball field?
The Brewster Whitecaps are supported by 14 -18 interns every season. Our game operations include setting up the fans' area before every game, so our thousands of fans have a memorable day at the game. We take donations at the gate, sell raffle tickets, hang sponsors' banners, welcome local groups, help sell souvenirs, and all the sideline tasks that enable the community to put a top-flight NCAA team on the field.
Photography is another contribution an intern can make. We have an Official Photographer, but he's a professional who often can't be at games. An intern with a little experience can make a real difference to our on-line content.
It's hard work, and there's no salary. It is baseball, and it's on Cape Cod. A Cape League intern is a great line on your resume and as good a reference as you earn (which is usually very good indeed). If you can earn credit toward your degree, we can work that out, too. So if you have a place to stay in the area*, transportation, and afternoons free (we play at 5PM, not under the lights), send us a resume, and maybe you'll get to spend the Summer of '19 with the Whitecaps.

General Manager Interns
We have an intern who is our liaison to the Major League scouts who spend the summer on the Cape, looking at players who are likely to be eligible for the following year's draft. This intern will tweet starting pitchers every morning, then be available to scouts as soon as our players show up for (home game) batting practice, usually around 2pm. You'll have scouts-only statistics, and be expected to interact with them on a professional level. To the extent it doesn't conflict with your scouts' responsibilities, you may also assist our General Manager and his staff with game-related duties. And, for the record, it generally doesn't include keeping stats for the club. We have other league-wide resources to do that, and the coaching staff does its own sabremetrics. Interested? Email our GM, Ned Monthie (below). The 2020 MLB scout liaison and support positions are filled.
*We can't emphasize this too strongly - the Cape is a resort area, and housing is expensive. If you have someplace to stay, great. If not, check out the clubs further west on Cape Cod, where affordable housing may be a little easier to find.
The Brewster Intern Story
Being an intern for the Brewster Whitecaps is a lot of hard work, but also a lot of fun.
There’s always a lot to do before the game, from putting up banners, to manning the gates.
All while flying around in golf carts.
During games, there’s the 50-50 raffle where the interns go around the field with the players and sell tickets.
While nobody will ever out-sell the 2014 Whitecaps’ Cody Ponce, future interns will have to try.
Interns also work the raffle table, but there’s always time to watch the game.
After the game, banners are taken down.
Trash is collected.
And once everything is all cleaned up, dinner is served.
While there’s always work to be done, there’s nothing better than spending a summer on the Cape watching baseball and working for the Brewster Whitecaps.
