Ever wish that you could just watch baseball all day, blog about it, and get paid for it? Be careful what you wish for. MLB.com has just such an opening, but you read the headline correctly. You must watch and blog on every single MLB game this season … all 2,472 of them, including the All-Star Game and the playoffs. How is this even possible? Jeff Heckelman of Major League Baseball explains:

“We’re still working out the details of the setting in which the person will hang out,” said Heckelman. “But suffice it to say it will be a setting conducive to watching multiple games simultaneously.”

The person that is hired for this job will have to relocate to New York City during the season. In addition to writing about the games and their experience, they will be part of a show that will air on the league’s website and will participate in what Heckelman called a “live interactive experience for baseball fans.”

Heckelman says MLB is looking for somebody that has an encyclopedic knowledge of the entire league, is entertaining, has a unique and humorous writing style and will be comfortable in front of a camera.

MLB is also looking to capitalize on marketing and promotional partnerships with what they are hoping is a popular project. “We’re certainly talking about such opportunities internally, but at this point we’re just focused on finding the right person and the rest will follow.”

Below is the link to the site where you can apply. The winning applicant must:

Pass a background check (sorry, Phillies fans).

Be able to eat while watching the Mets.

Be willing to use a urinary catheter.

Have no life.

Have no problem looking like this by September.
