Why working at baseball stadiums is the perfect summer side hustle

Baseball is back and fans are excited! Want to be there to witness the home runs personally? Instawork has you covered! 

As all 30 professional baseball teams take the field this week for Opening Day, Instawork Pros will be working shifts at more than half these stadiums to help fans enjoy “America’s favorite pastime.”

And the best part: the average hourly pay rate nationally for stadium shifts on the app is currently more than $19 an hour. 

Here’s how you can get in on the action this baseball season!

Create an Instawork profile

Instawork Pros can create a profile, find a shift that matches their skills and interests, and start working in as little as 24 hours. Pros are also able to build their own work schedule, view total earnings before the shift, and have the opportunity to get paid instantly through Instapay. Most commonly selected ballpark shifts include:

  • Concessions / Cashiers
  • Retail
  • Warehouse
  • Stand workers
  • Prep cooks
  • Dishwashers
  • Bartenders
  • Suite servers and runners
  • Custodial

Among the Instawork Pros already enjoying their stadium shifts experience is Tamara, who had never left her home state of Texas until she signed up for Instawork. Now she travels across the country to work at events, including sports stadiums, and gets to explore new parts of the country.


Then there’s single mom Helen, whose hours were cut at her job, leaving her in a tough spot. She now uses flexible work to make ends meet while still being able to take care of her kids.
