Alex Dailey Stevens Institute of Technology Class of 2020

Dear Mr. Naples,

My name is Alex Dailey, and I would like to introduce myself as a college student with the goal of having a career in Major League Baseball. The game of baseball has been a part of me since I was 5 years old, and it has shaped me into the person I am today. Baseball is my passion and love, and I plan on being involved with baseball throughout the rest of my life.

I am currently a freshman at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ. I am majoring in Business Management and am a member of the Varsity Baseball team, a nationally ranked D3 program. I finished my first semester with a 3.75 GPA and plan on receiving a Master’s degree within 5 years through Stevens’ 4+1 Master’s Program.

Since I was 13 years old, I’ve had the dream and goal of having a career in Major League Baseball. Baseball is by far and away my own personal pastime, as I read numerous articles every day, whether they be from SportsOnEarth, ESPN or MLBTradeRumors. The only live “TV show” I watch is anything on MLB Network, and I take pride in educating myself on every part of the game and industry. My favorite thing in the world is to talk baseball with people who share my passion for the game, and I am committed to working as hard as humanly possible to build a career in the industry, whether that be as a scout, farm director, front office analyst, or ultimately the GM of an organization. I am intrigued by both the baseball and operational sides of the sport, as issues regarding the Collective Bargaining Agreement are just as interesting to me as measuring the value of a player based on advanced stats such as FIP and RA-9 WAR.

Mr. Naples, I would love the chance to discuss any potential internship opportunity in your organization, paid or unpaid, in order to gain the initial experience needed to create a brand for myself in the baseball industry. I am committed to doing whatever is necessary to obtain and sustain a career for a Major League organization, as I know my passion, knowledge, education and honest drive to improve my knowledge of the game will be an asset to any organization. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter, and I look forward to speaking with you in the future.
