doing laundry, cleaning, running errands and providing snacks… the dream! . Do they have to be a young fan? Maybe I can do this when I retire soon…check that, I was glad to stop doing this when my kids grew up.

…in all seriousness sound like a nice opportunity for someone young breaking into baseball management.

Biggest drawback? The employee would have to see me around at all the games.

I have a couple of friends who were clubhouse guys for the Pittsburgh Pirates for several years. They both loved and hated it. The hours were insane. The work was non stop and could be degrading at times. But as you can image, they are a wealth of stories about the people behind the public images of these players.

Of note: Derek Jeter was rather stand-offish and not especially cordial, whereas A-Rod was extremely personable and polite with them.

I worked for the Chicago Bears in 1985 as a summer job junior of high school, doing pretty much what has been mentioned and more. It's a great job for a kid. And yes you get to see their true personalities.

Walter Payton was the team clown, always had pellet guns, etc. playing pranks on teammates.

The offensive line Van Horne, Becker, Andrews, and Kevin Butler were cool guys, went out to lunch with them on occasion and they included me in the conversations. One particular one was hilarious about Marsha Brady.

Mike Singletary was a pompous ass.

The Fridge William Perry was a big kid, and hilarious.

The closest I ever got was a job interview with MLB. I think it was a temp job initially to install computers and whatnot for the then new or upcoming Washington Nationals stadium, and then continue to service other parks in the Northeast.
