Do your baseball dreams surpass home plate and lie behind a booming microphone announcing the home team's starting lineup? Then the Cubs have a job for you.

The Northside team announced Monday it's looking for a public address announcer, "the voice of the Chicago Cubs while in Wrigley Field," to replace announcer Paul Friedman. And fans are eligible to apply.

Go online to submit your application with a 2-minute video of you reading three scripts provided in the job posting.

The team wants someone with "strong vocal talent, excellent enunciation skills" and trong knowledge of baseball.

Applicants must be available for all 81 Cubs home games, including makeup games, tiebreaker games, play-off games and non-game events.

That means you're announcing starting lineups, pitching changes and general Cubs information on days, nights, weekends and holidays during the season. 

Think you can do it? The deadline is March 14. The winner will be announced before March 25.
