Wanna get paid to watch baseball?

Dec 3, 2009, 10:45 AM EST

MLB.com is hiring some stats stringers in Boston, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, Miami, Milwaukee, and Texas.  The gig: digitally scoring games from the press box by entering the results of every pitch and game event (plays, substitutions, etc.) using MLB.com’s software.

It’s a hard, hard job from what I hear, but it is getting paid to watch ballgames. They want someone with previous press box experience, but it doesn’t have to be baseball experience.

If you’re interested, send a resume and cover letter to stats@website.mlb.com.

    So I send the resume now and the cover later?

    I once crouched in a swamp for hours watching for ivory billed woodpeckers. Does that count?

    That job actually sounds like it sucks. How could you enjoy the game under conditions like that? But then, I’ve never found scoring along at home to be anything other than tedious.
