O's: Today's job posting

The Orioles just announced this year's ballboy and ballgirl tryouts. The club will hold interviews on March 6 at noon at the Warehouse for anyone 18 or older who wants to spend the summer in an Orioles jersey, but making substantially less than the $400,000 major league minimum salary.

Question: If candiates have to be 18 or older, shouldn't they be called ballmen and ballwomen. Just asking.

If you want to be considered, show up at the Bud Light Warehouse Bar entrance dressed in business casual attire. It wouldn't hurt if you brought a resume.

They actually get paid? I thought it was one of the "this is a treat" type jobs.

My nephew tried out for this two years ago. Didn't get the ballboy gig, but did land a job as a runner for the season.
He had a lot of access to players and was up in the press box a bit, he liked the job a lot but it got a little old when the losses started to pile up.

What are the healthcare and 401K benefits like?

rly a resume?

Do i need a glove or a bat???

best post....PCB ROB...a close second, Wayne! (did I just say that?) cant wait for 1st gm of SPRING!!!! hoooahh

About Peter Schmuck
Peter Schmuck wants you to know that, contrary to popular belief, he is more than just a bon vivant, raconteur and collector of blousy flowered shirts. He is a semi-respected journalist who has covered virtually every sport -- except luge, of course – and tackled issues that transcend the mere games people play. If that isn’t enough to qualify him to provide witty, wide-ranging commentary on the sports world ... and the rest of the world, for that matter ... he is an avid reader of history, biography and the classics, as well as a charming blowhard who pops off on both sports and politics on WBAL Radio. That means you can expect a little of everything in The Schmuck Stops Here, but the major focus will be keeping you up to the minute on Baltimore’s major sports teams and themes, whether it’s throwing up the Orioles lineup the minute it’s announced or updating you on the latest sprained ankle in Owings Mills. Oh, and by the way, that’s Mr. Schmuck to you.
