Wanna be the P.A. announcer at Wrigley Field?

I just got back from the Cubs’ clubhouse — more on that later — and sitting on my laptop was a press release from the team announcing a partnership between the Cubs and CareerBuilder.com to find the next public address announcer at Wrigley Field.

Really: they’re taking applications right on the web. Candidates, we’re told, should possess “a strong vocal talent, skilled readership and a deep knowledge of baseball.”

No word if you have to be able to dramatically repeat players’ last names (“Now pinch hitting for Pedro Borbon … Manny Mota … Mota … Mota …”)
