Looking for a few good Volunteer Interns
The Senior League Softball World Series could use your talents.
This year we will be playing 27 games August 4-10th, (along with 27 more games on the Big League Softball side) Both finals will be on ESPN.
We need several volunteer interns to work with Social Media, our Webcasting project, and with the Sponsor Development (marketing) people.
The Web casting Internship is primarily an opportunity to do television play by play, as many as 3 games a day for the week working with our PPV provider. This position also will allow contact and possibly working with the ESPN production crew that broadcasts the final games.
Social Media Internship involves tweeting the games as they progress and writing a post game wrap-up of each game for our website and possibly for outside media (acting as a stringer - this might get you money). The position also allows for a byline - and providing assistance to the ESPN crew during their presence in the park.
Sponsor Development involves working with the tournament director and our marketing people, providing assistance to them, and a working in sponsor relations. This is a great opportunity to work with the upper management of a major sporting event.
The World Series also could use additional photographers, altho we may ask the Social Media interns who have that ability to also shoot a few pictures.
Send an e-mail to: Media@SeniorSoftballWS.org - let us know what you can do.
