Full Answer

The batboy position requires a lot of exertion and can be dangerous, so the MLB requires batboys to be at least 14 years old, although some teams require older ages, and maintain good physical condition. The teams review the applications submitted, so be patient through the off-season. Those who pass the first stage will be invited in for an interview. Go into the meeting confident, competent and willing to accept all the responsibilities that the position entails.
