It's been said that deep down, no matter the age, every baseball fan secretly dreams of playing under the big lights. This season, the San Antonio Missions are giving locals that chance. Well, kind of.
As the hometown team prepares for the 2019 season, they're looking to fill a host of (off the field) positions including bat boys and girls, ushers, and grounds crew. Though the season begins on April 4 in Oklahoma City, the Missions head back to SA for their first home stand on April 9 — meaning there are less than two months to fill out the roster.
On February 16, the Missions are hosting a job fair at Nelson Wolff Stadium along with Diamond Creations, the stadium's caterer, to do just that.
Just a few of the positions currently available:
- Bat boys (ages 16 to 20)
- Ticket office employees
- Game operations crew
- Production team members, including film crew and camera operators
- Concession stand attendants
- Fun zone attendants
- Parking attendants
Diamond Creations, meanwhile, is looking to score bartenders, beer and food vendors, cooks, kitchen staff, and other pinch hitters.
Interested parties can pitch why they're the best player for the job 10 am to 1 pm (incidentally, about the length of a baseball game). Applications will be taken at the Missions Administrative Office on the first base side of Wolff Stadium. For more info on joining the home team, head here.
