Os to hold ballball and ballgirl tryouts March 1

The Orioles will have an open tryout to find ballgirls and ballboys for the upcoming season at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Saturday, March 1.

The judges will include members of the Orioles’ front office, former players and local media personalities.

Interested candidate should be outgoing and athletic, ages 18 and older, with tryout slated to begin at noon ET.

Candidates should dress casually, bring their own gloves, and use the Home Plate Plaza entrance to Oriole Park on the southwest corner of the ballpark. Resumes are also recommended. Complimentary parking will be available in Lot A.

In addition to being able to handle a glove and field ground balls, candidates should be personable, customer-service oriented and available to work the entire 2014 season.


The unsuccessful ballperson applicants will be signed by the Orioles and invited to Spring Training, along with the parade of career minor leaguers and aging re-treads. Should be a close competition!

Right on Goober. They seem more interested in signing ball people instead of building a contender.

Yeah, remember when their most exciting off-season addition was a new stadium PA announcer? (Who, by the way, is awful.) Jim, you need to get on the orioles.com message boards and talk some sense into all the Angelos Apologists who are completely thrilled with all the third-rate – but CHEAP – players they’re bringing in.
