Rebekah Lajoie joined the Collegiate League of the Palm Beaches intern staff in the summer of 2020. Rebekah had already committed to a summer job with the Cape Cod Baseball League that
summer, but due to the Covid-19 outbreak the Cape did not have a summer season and the
CLPB ended up with Rebekah on their staff. She ended up taking on responsibilities mainly in
the analytics area of the CLPB working with Flight Scope as well as some basic day to day
operations duties as well. Rebekah was an amazing worker for the CLPB and is now shifting her
focus of her future occupation to the world of professional baseball.

In an interview with the Director of Day-to-Day Operations for the CLPB, Max Dakin, Rebekah discussed more about her internship experience, as well as where she is at now.

What is your current job?
Rebekah: I am going to be starting an internship with the San Diego Padres for the research and
development and sports science departments. Basically, I will be going player to player within
the organization talking over different analytical data from the different systems that we will be

How did you find the CLPB internship?
Rebekah: I originally was supposed to go work for the Cape Cod League, but it ended up getting
cancelled because of Covid so I obviously didn’t have a job. My brother was actually working
out at Cressey Sports Performance, and he learned about the CLPB relationship between the
league and Cressey. I did some research and saw that the league was still going on so I reached
out and ended up getting the internship.

How was your internship experience with the CLPB?
Rebekah: I had a great experience with the CLPB. I was able to learn a lot of new things that I
had never really gotten to experience before, especially some of the different hands on tasks
and just being able to do a little bit of everything from all of the different tasks from all of the
intern positions that the league offers.

How would you say the CLPB internship helped you get to where you are now?
Rebekah: I would say the biggest thing that I took away from the league to get me to where I
am now is actually getting to see how different types of analytical data can truly help a player.
Along with that, helping players understand what some of the data actually means so that they
can find areas to improve. A lot of players don’t know what data means and for me being able
to help them understand it better so they can get better is a great feeling.
