Clear your schedules and get your running shoes ready, Cubs baseball lovers. The team is looking for ball boys and girls for the upcoming season.
"These exciting positions serve an important role throughout the baseball season and offer a great opportunity to have one of the best summer jobs in Chicago," said Wally Hayward, the Cubs' executive vice president and chief sales and marketing officer.
Men and women who are at least 18 years old by April 5 -- opening day -- and who can commit to at least 65 regular season games are invited to apply at CareerBuilder.com, the team's partner.
CareerBuilder.com last year helped the Cubs find a public address announcer.
Ball boys and ball girls are responsible for monitoring the out-of-play lines for right and left field and retrieving baseballs once they are designated foul by the base umpires. Attendants will rotate the responsibility of delivering new baseballs to the home plate umpire as necessary, the team said.
Though March 12, those interested can apply and submit of video sample at Cubs.CareerBuilder.com. The team will select 50 semifinalists to attend live tryouts at BASH Sports Academy in Chicago on March 19. A group of finalists will then travel to Mesa, Ariz. March 26-28 to perform the required job duties during Spring Training. The team’s final selections will be hired by March 30.
