Double-check and verify all pre-game information: rosters, umpires, weather conditions, etc.
During the game, enter the results of every pitch and game event (plays, substitutions, etc.) using our proprietary software and coding language
Work closely with our game-night support staff (via Slack) to ensure proper scoring of all game events and accuracy of data
After the game, enter all post-game information and validate all stats and data in our scoring software against the box score provided by the Official Scorer.
Exceptional (and demonstrable) knowledge of baseball and how to score a baseball game
Strong computer proficiency (Windows OS, Windows-based software and Chrome browser) and the ability to quickly learn and operate new software
Knowledge and use of Slack chat software
Network connection management (Ethernet, Wifi enabling/Disabling; test MAC Address)
Previous experience (including pressbox exposure) with a professional or college sports team, preferably baseball, is preferred.
Regular availability to attend games in-person as required by the schedule: weekdays, nights and weekends
A "team player" with a great attitude, including but not limited to a willingness to make and learn from mistakes and the ability to work closely and cooperatively (and take direction from) our game-night staff
It is a fun job and we pay people to watch baseball, but it is also an important job and we want people who will take the responsibility seriously.
There is a correspondence training program before working any games solo in the ballpark.
