So you have some free time before, during, and after the home games at AT&T Park? Why not apply for the Giants cheerleading and friends-of-the-fans squad:
— San Francisco Giants (@SFGiants) February 11, 2014
I’ve never met anybody doing this, so I can’t tell you my experiences with them, but I would it’s cool because you get paid to be at AT&T Park, which normally, you pay them. That’s pretty neat. They links to photos the people do, a job description, and some minimum qualifications. I’ll highlight some for your information:
- Assist in the execution of Giants special event nights at AT&T Park
- Serve as Giants ambassadors at street festivals, events and promotions throughout the Bay Area
I interpret that as, “Walk with Willie Mays and Willie McCovey to the field and escort Barry Bonds to his seats near the dugout.” That second bullet point I interpret as, “Be a part of the parade when the Giants win the World Series again.” I mean, that’s got to be pretty excellent.
- Display an outgoing, energetic and engaging personality
So, not Brandon Crawford‘s Wells Fargo radio commercial.
- Be comfortable in front of large groups upwards of 42,000
Everybody will be watching you. Everybody. Approximately 84,000 eyeballs at least.
- Have reliable transportation and live in or close to San Francisco
But living close is probably better because going to San Francisco is a nightmare.
- Demonstrate good moral character
Jarred Cosart has been ruled out.
- Knowledge of baseball and the San Francisco Giants is preferred
You could be a fair weather fan and it’s OK!
This gig sounds great, if you have the time and maybe you’re looking at this as a possible customer service or social media internship. It does require a good amount of your time, though. Hopefully, if you are a good Giants fan — guy or gal — you apply and you get it. Best of luck, don’t miss the deadline.
