wow who wouldnt want to do this
well me, i hate baseball
I love baseball but I would shoot myself come August. Who wants to watch every game of the season?
Beer taster or porn casting agent would probably top that for me.
I would shoot myself.
im sure there would be some nice pay involved, i doubt your doing this for free
Says you must have an engaging fun personality. That leaves me out. And it's been 25 years since I've watched an MLB game from start to finish. Torturous boring. They'll find some 22 year old to do it unpaid.
I would love to do that...but no way do I have the time!
It not only would be bad in August, but think about watching a Pirates vs Nationals game in late August...ouch.
That said, it would be unbelievable for a baseball fan for about a month or so.
plus you have to move to NYC
that would be terrible moving to one of the greatest cities in the world getting paid well for a whole summer, man count me out
Would love it, plus get to spend the summer away from my wife!!
Watch every single game? Either they don't mean start to finish, they plan to let the person watch condensed games, or the person can watch multiple games at the same time. Otherwise, the sum total of MLB major league games (162 * 30 teams / 2) at 3 hours per game is roughly 304 straight days of baseball (24 hours per day).
The season is only about 180 days long. Watching only one game at a time in real time, it'd take 4 people watching baseball 10 hours per day, 7 days a week to watch all the games in around 180 days.
Maybe they have a video crew to cut the three hours or torture down to the three minutes of action for each game.
I think MLB.tv posts condensed games where they only show the pitch (or pitches) in an at-bat where something happens -- ball in play, strikeout, stolen base, pickoff, etc. That would make this job manageable.
I love baseball but to watch every single game? I dont even watch every Braves (favorite team) game. Plus being in front of a camera and writing about every game? Sounds rough. Wonder what the pay is?
Just get me a book of baseball cliches and I'll be fine...
"[Insert Player Name] has really been swinging a hot bat lately."
"[Insert Player Name] just didn't come to the park ready to play today."
"[Insert Player Name] always comes through in the clutch."
"The [Insert Team Name] need to start manufacturing some runs here."
"I would do things to the hottie in the third row that would make Ron Jeremy blush."
"The team that scores the most runs today will win the game."
i believe from what I have read is that you will be in a room with multiple televisions so that you would be able to watch every game in real time
Who says it would have to pay well? Lots of sports related jobs don't pay well (unless you already have a lot of money like a GM, or have a highly specialized skill like head trainer) because so many people want to work for a sports franchise. They don't have to pay well because people will do it cheaply because they love it, or just to say that's what they do.
Football maybe, not baseball
