Do You Like The Phillies?

By Wyatt Earp | September 18, 2010

Personally, I hate them, but in fairness, I hate baseball. What with all of the steroids and such. However, if you are a chick who happens to be a Phillies fan, this is your chance to summon your inner Jennie Finch.

The Phillies are looking for ball girls. Do you have the balls for the job?

Oct. 4 is the date to note for both types of prospective applicants. That’s the deadline for potential ballgirls to mail in resumes and videos. Every year, a half-dozen to a dozen new faces join the Phillies ballgirl squad, which has 17 members this season, said Michele DeVicaris, the Phillies events coordinator who oversees the squad.

Because the women – a mix of students, teachers and other professionals – play charity softball games, they all have to be able to hit and throw well, not just field foul balls during games. They need to be well-spoken, too, because they’ll represent the team at all sorts of community events. That’s why applicants, who must be at least 18, have to mail in not just a resume, but a DVD with video of the applicant demonstrating softball skills and discussing reasons for wanting to be a ballgirl.

It also helps if you’re smoking hot. Just sayin’.
