STATS game charters are expected to keep up with live action pitch-to-pitch, also tracking substitutions, scoring changes, batted ball locations, etc. Applicants will train by scoring recorded games from home as unpaid training accounts, following by live accounts from home which are paid assuming continued progress.
Press Box Reporters will divide the MLB team’s home schedule along with (typically) three other people. Be sure you have solid availability for weekend games and for weekday day games. STATS will provide access into the venue press box, but transportation expenses are not reimbursed.
