How would you like to spend six months in the heart of New York City lying on the couch and watching baseball from sun up to sun down?
You'll be surrounded by televisions that will broadcast every Major League Baseball contest this season. Your accommodations will be taken care of; you'll be a media darling at various MLB functions; and you'll talk baseball with fans from around the world.
Sound too good to be true? Well, it isn't.
Major League Baseball is conducting a casting call for the ultimate baseball fan's dream job. The winner of this contest will move to NYC and star in something similar to a reality TV series that will air on MLB.com.
The lucky recipient of the "job" will watch every regular-season and post-season game and be required to share opinions on players, teams and daily events from the comfort of MLB-selected accommodations.
There is a catch: You must be literate, and the thoughts and opinions you're required to share via Twitter or other social-media outlet must be somewhat intelligent.
The lucky recipient will possess an encyclopedic knowledge of the entire league, have an engaging personality, a sense of humour, and a unique writing style, among other obvious employable traits.
Those interested in applying can go to mlb.com/dreamjob for more info. (But don't waste your time because the job is all mine!)
Knock it out of the park.
