Neat article... I always wondered what these guys' lives are all about..



Dream Job


I'm often asked, "How did you get that sweet gig?"



I'd get bored with that job after a month...

That was interesting. I never even knew what a stringer was. Good find.

I actually applied for that job through Monster.com in the spring for the Mets gig, it was like a special promotion with Monster and MLB they were having.

So that's the guy I yell at to type faster, when there's a ball hit, but the result hasn't shown up yet. :-D

I always wondered about who does the Gameday stuff. I have a bone to pick with some of those ball placements. It'd be cool if they actually showed the wrong called strikes (that were 4 inches outside) as actually out of the strike zone. }:-)
