MLB pitcher spends off-season as D.C. intern

When Ross Ohlendorf isn't pitching for the Pittsburgh Pirates, you might expect him to be in a sunny climate, working  on his fastball in the off-season.

But the Princeton grad has other plans; he's spending the winter crunching numbers at the Department of Agriculture as an unpaid intern at an indistinguishable desk in a small office.

Ohlendorf, who was paid $413,500 this season, tells ABC News he's learned a lot during his internship about the spread of bovine diseases; he's also met fellow Princeton alum First Lady Michelle Obama. This is "the most exciting off-season I've had," he says.
