It is a dream that most young Baltimore Orioles fans have at some point, and the Orioles announced via press release on Tuesday that they will hold open tryouts for ballboys and ballgirls for the upcoming 2014 season.

 The Orioles will conduct an open tryout to find ballgirls and ballboys for the 2014 season at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Saturday, March 1. The judges will include members of the Orioles’ front office, former players and local media personalities.

Baltimore states that any 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 2014 season are invited to try out for a position at Oriole Park beginning at noon on March 1.

The Orioles recommend that those interested should dress casually, bring their own gloves, and use the Home Plate Plaza entrance to Oriole Park on the southwest corner of the ballpark and resumes are also recommended. Complimentary parking will be available in Lot A.

It's not just based on baseball skills, as 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 2014 season.

For those who have dreamed of being on the field at Camden Yards and being able to hand foulballs to the youngsters in the stands, here is your chance to live it. It's always great when a team holds a tryout like this, rather than simply giving the job to someone's nephew or niece.
