Think you've got what it takes to be a member of the 2011 Nat Pack, the energetic band of baseball-minded entertainers who whip up the crowd at Nationals Park into a frenzy and represent the guys with the curly Ws on their caps at events in and around the District?
Well, if so, the Nationals want you.
The Nationals are now accepting applications for the Nat Pack, hoping to find a new bevy of fan ambassadors before the first pitch is thrown March 31. Athletes, gymnasts, dancers, cheerleaders and anyone interested in this gig should submit a cover letter, resume and photograph via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is Monday, Jan. 31.
Select applicants will be invited to the first day on Friday, Feb. 4, at which time they will demonstrate their athletic prowess through a group run, man a t-shirt gun and show off their best rally techniques. Those who survive will be asked back for the second round on Saturday, Feb. 5, when they will be asked to complete a questionnaire and appear before an interview panel.
Tryouts are not open to the public and will take place regardless of inclement weather.
