Are you a college student looking to join an organization with a winning tradition? Want to learn what it takes, top to bottom, to run a franchise in the United States’ premier summer collegiate baseball league, while beginning your career in sports? Need intern credits for school, a club or church?
Then apply for a Y-D Red Sox Internship! We are always seeking motivated, hard-working individuals to join us during the summer in various capacities.
Read below for more information. When applying, please understand the following conditions:
- All interns must secure their own transportation and housing proximate to Yarmouth, Mass.
- Internship positions in the Cape Cod Baseball League are unpaid, but with this in mind, Y-D interns always have the option of earning college credit for their work.

- While Y-D is not obligated to find you a morning job, we have advised several interns in past years as they prepared to secure employment for the summer.
