Circle Saturday, March 5 on your calendar. That's the day the Orioles will hold tryouts for ballgirls and ballboys for the upcoming 2011 season.
Outgoing and athletic men and women 18 and older are invited to try out at Camden Yards beginning at noon. Dress casually, bring your own glove and use the Home Plate Plaza entrance on the southwest corner of the ballpark to enter the stadium. Resumes are recommended, and complimentary parking will be available in Lot A.
Handling a glove and fielding ground balls are important, but candidates should also be personable, customer-service oriented and available to work the entire 2011 season.
Judges will include members of the Orioles' front office and MASN broadcaster - and former O's pitcher - Dave Johnson.
