The Appalachian League is seeking highly qualified associates to work and support day to day operations of the League, ranging from player logistics to data collection and dissemination.
With dozens of players drafted or signed out of the Appy League in the last three seasons, the league's alumni are assigned throughout the Minor Leagues, taking aim on their goal of reaching the Majors.
The Appalachian League announced that its charitable outreach totaled more than $3.5 million of gift-in-kind and monetary donations this year. The league and its clubs volunteered more than 10,000 hours of community service.
Appalachian League executives participated in the 28th annual MLK Day of Service on Jan. 16, 2023, volunteering in nine communities across North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. Tabbed as a “day on, not a day off” to celebrate the life and legacy of the Civil Rights leader, MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities.
