When I was younger, all I wanted was to be a baseball player.

Every summer, if my friends and I didn't have enough kids to fill two teams, we'd invent our own variation of baseball.

We must've had 50 different ways to play America's Pastime.

As I got older, it became clear that I'd never get to don the uniform of my favorite team, the New York Mets.

I know that many who read this are Philly fans, and I'll admit that if I had a chance to play ball for a living, I'd play for anyone who gave me a chance.

Being a ballplayer is cool, but there are many other jobs you can do that involve going to the ballpark and earning a living.

The New York Mets, are looking for a new Mr. Met.

How cool is that?

There are few mascots as well known as Mr. Met.


Of course, the Philly Fanatic is as cool as they come.  How about the San Diego Chicken (Is he still active?)

Here's something you may not realize, these mascots make a decent living.

The ad for a new Mr. Met puts the salary range at $67,426 to $89,902.  Not bad.

The ad states that Mr. Met works an

20 to 25 administrative hours per week and six to 24 performance hours, depending on the team’s schedule of games.
Applicants will need to have availability on evenings, weekends and holidays during the baseball season, and must have the “ability to interact with fans of all ages.”
Who knew Mr. Met has office hours?
Turns out there's more to Mr. Met than you'd think.
All candidates must know their way around Microsoft Office, and they need to be able to multitask.
The gig entails working with the team's marketing and management team.
