Here's your chance.

Pretend that's a Giant, and pretend you have to catch the crap he's throwing at you. Now you have the right idea. Credit -

This was passed along to me by a friend, and it might be relevant to your interests:

Title: Bat Boy
Report to: Clubhouse Manager
Department: Baseball Operations
Salary: Non-exempt/Hourly

Always wondered where the bat boys came from. Turns out they probably "applied" for the job. You can get the full job posting and instructions here.

And it's a new millenium, so don't worry. When they say "bat boy", they mean "bat person." I went to high school with a bat person who was the bat boy. But bat person sounds weird. And we all know there's nothing wrong with the term "bat boy."

Almost nothing wrong.

If you, fair McCovey Chronicles reader, should get this job, I will require you to steal very few items from the clubhouse. Hardly any, really. You'll be there mostly for eavesdropping and rumormongering. Even if you don't tell me a thing, you'll still be the "SOURCE:" in all the posts I write with "SOURCE:" in the headline, so you might as well tell me real things.

That's it. Good luck, and godspeed.
