MLB Diversity Fellowship Program

Baseball is a game that is played globally, featuring players whose backgrounds differ tremendously. Collectively, they compose a population as diverse as any other group of athletes in professional sport.

Each and every day, teams seek the best talent in order to stay ahead of the curve in the ultra-competitive landscape of the Major Leagues. Major League Baseball understands that we must apply that same approach to our front offices in order to secure the game’s next generation of leadership.
