Orioles to hold tryouts for ballgirls and ballboys on Saturday, March 5

The Orioles have announced they will conduct an open tryout to find ballgirls and ballboys for the 2011 season at Oriole Park on Saturday, March 5. The judges will include members of the Orioles' front office as well as former Orioles pitcher and MASN broadcaster DAVE JOHNSON.

Outgoing and athletic men and women ages 18 and older who are interested in serving as ballboys and ballgirls for the Orioles during the upcoming 2011 season are invited to try out for a position at Camden Yards beginning at noon on March 5.

Those interested should dress casually, bring their own gloves, and use the Home Plate Plaza entrance to Camden Yards 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, interested candidates should be personable, customer-service oriented and available to work the entire 2011 season.
