Several students within the Texas Southern University Department of Athletics are spending their summer on the diamond as interns within the Houston Astros Baseball Organization.
The internships are a result of a recently announced partnership between the Astros and TSU which focuses on scholarships and Sports Management initiatives. A total of five students from the department are interning in various departments within the Astros organization ranging from Marketing & Communications, Community & Foundation (+Youth Academy) and Baseball Operations.
Each intern went through an extensive interview process and were placed in areas based on the results of the interview or previous experiences. They will have an opportunity to experience how the organization runs both on-and-off the diamond as they’ll split their time between daily office duties, community initiatives and home baseball games at Minute Maid Park. As an intern, the opportunity for full-time employment within the organization or other professional organizations increases as nearly 20 percent of the Astros’ full-time staff have completed an internship with the organization.
