This weekend I met an interesting guy that works for the Washington Nationals Major League Baseball team. He was a Sports Marketing Major in College and has worked for the Red Socks in Boston and now is in ticket sales with the Washington Nationals. You could see in his face how much he truly loved his job. Interesting fact about ticket sales for the MLB, the more successful your team the harder it is to make a commission on tickets sales. Therefore your salary is fixed. It is a catch 22! You want your team to win to excite prospective ticket holders but not too good where there are no tickets to sell. Professional Ticketing Sales Agents can make anywhere from $40-$90K a year.
