Thursday afternoon job opportunity

Ever dreamed of being a ballboy or ballgirl for a major league club? No? Oh. Um, well, you can, if you want. From the Baltimore Sun’s Peter Schmuck:

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.

One has to wonder what takes place in these ballboy and ballgirl “interviews.” Can you field a grounder? Able to identify the youngest kid in the first five rows? And can you toss that kid the ball? Good, now steer clear of balls in play. There are worse ways to spend a summer.
