Get out your resume, as I am sure every Ballpark Chaser would kill for a chance to work with Major League Baseball for a full season. I am not sure what they pay, but you get to watch "every single game" during the season so how can you complain with that job requirement! Check out the details here.

Geez I never even heard about this. Sorry to hear no one from this website won. Or at least I am assuming these guys are not members?

Well, they chose 2 winners from 10,000 applicants!  Check it out:

No news. I think it was a hoax.  Two weeks until opening day leaving the "winner" with next to time to get to NYC.  I almost forgot about the whole contest.

Yep, good points for sure Craig-I am going for a professional haircut tomorrow, have a wicked new set of clothes, and am brushing up on my knowledge. I am definitely going to key on fan participation with others. Lucky for me that have been to all 50 states and 30 ballparks because i will be able to relate to any fan that wishes to interact with me if I am hired. I have lived this life for the last three years-this would just be an extension. Camera's don't phase me-and neither does being in the public eye. Being a stats junkie, and an expert on sports gambling-should also help. Should I get this job-I am counting on the 'ballpark chasers' here to hit me up if I am in New York. Spending 7 months straight watching 4880 games will be intense.

@Chuck- congratulations! This is amazing! My suggestions: come off excited about baseball. I know this doesn't seem hard but its how you present yourself on camera is what they are looking for. Smile and change your pitch in your voice to show your excitement by the opportunity, rather than just a flat, monotone voice. Certainly talk about your record setting ballpark travels and that you did it for the love of the game and ballparks. I would stay away from "plugging" any websites, your book, etc. With that being said, certainly bring up the fact that you have authored 3 books, with the latest being about your ballpark travels. MLB wants you to represent them this summer, not yourself. Oh, and treat it like a real interview- be clean shaven, well groomed, nice clothes. etc.

I applied over the weekend. It's like hitting the lottery.
Comment by Doug Miller (30) on February 21, 2011 at 7:40pm

Yeah, I "applied" earlier today.  We'll see where it goes.  Whoever wins, I just hope they aren't obnoxious.  I think at the end of the day they're looking for Blogger/Twitter people, so either we'll get someone who's a total stat-head, or a smartass... or me!  Ha-Ha.

 

Doug
