To get to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., it takes a golden career.

Or, if you're Christopher Docter from Northridge, it just takes pursuing a post-graduate degree in ...


Yep. The CSUN graduate student and Northridge native is one of 15 students interning at the Baseball Hall of Fame this summer. They all come from different educational backgrounds and are assigned very different tasks.

Docter's is working in the library-research department.

“I’m excited about working at the Hall of Fame this summer because I have loved baseball history since I was young, and I’m in the premier place for baseball history in the United States,” Docter said in a statement.

Now in its 14th year, the Frank and Peggy Steele Internship Program for Youth Leadership Development program offers college undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to work alongside museum and library staff members to gain hands-on professional training in a field that closely matches the student’s major. 

Other interns will be handling such duties as planning special events, membership, sales and marketing and others, according to a press release. Six hundred students applied.
