Background – the FCBL is a summer collegiate baseball league with eight teams located throughout New England. The league plays 54 games throughout the summer. The focus of the league is to provide an opportunity for college baseball players (with at least one year of NCAA baseball eligibility remaining and in good academic standing) with the opportunity to hone and showcase their talent. As important it is also to provide the community with a fun and affordable family event throughout the summer.
- Maximizing fan attendance and sponsorships are essential to the organization in providing funds to support a quality team and 27 high level baseball and entertainment events.
- Business, Political and Constituent awareness, involvement and trust are critical to the long term viability of the organization.

Internship Program – the program will consist of various components and functions to be performed as needed based on timeframes, volume of work and importance. (e g as we get closer to live date on a planned event focus will shift from research to execution).
Functions will include activities related to research, marketing, sales, media and public relations, event planning and execution, staffing, league interaction, social media, player/coach requirements and accommodations, community organization fund raising and more. Interns will be exposed to all areas of the operation and will participate to varying degrees based on desired goals, skills and team need. The Internship program is Unpaid but we do accept compensation in the form of College Credit.
