*Next week Major League Baseball will kickoff the MLB Diversity Fellowship Program, which is the most prominent action taken by MLB’s Diversity and Inclusion department to support its Front Office & Field Diversity initiative.
The program is open exclusively to recent graduates (no more than two years removed) who are people of color and/or women.
The Office of the Commissioner will place 23 candidates in coveted roles as a means to put them on a pathway to long careers in Baseball. It is a multi-million dollar investment by Major League Baseball and our Clubs to proactively recruit the best young minds for positions in our baseball operations, front office and league economics areas. The Fellows will be announced via a press release in April.
This initiative is important to the game and we are proud to spread the news around this time of year. More information below.
