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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
