Reds announce tryouts for the “John Morrell Reds Rally Pack”

I was going to post about the fact that the Reds avoided arbitration by coming to agreements with Homer Bailey, Bill Bray, and Paul Janish tonight. That is, I was until I went to Reds.com and came upon this press release calling for applications to be a Reds Rally Pack rallier.

CINCINNATI (Jan. 17, 2012) – The John Morrell Reds Rally Pack entertainment squad is looking for a few new members for the 2012 Reds season.

The John Morrell Reds Rally Pack is a fan interactive team that serves as ambassadors for Great American Ball Park. Through participating in pregame and in-game activities, greeting fans at the gates, tossing out victory balls and delivering birthday packages, this team knows how to get fans to feel welcome and on their feet at Reds game.

The Rally Pack performs at all home games and at many events throughout the community.

Tryout Expectations:

  1. Must be 21 years or older
  2. Must have a flexible schedule
  3. Customer service and people skills are a must
  4. Outgoing and able to talk to new people
  5. Crazy/zany personality and willing to be silly in front of 40,000-plus fans
  6. Willing to participate in creative promotions

Tryout Information:

  1. Please complete application online at www.reds.com/rallypack
  2. Only selected applicants will be invited the auditions on Feb. 4.
  3. If you are selected, we will contact you by Feb. 1.

For more information, please contact Corey Hawthorne at (513) 765-7343 or [email protected]

The Rally Pack is a paid, seasonal position. The Cincinnati Reds are an Equal Opportunity Employer.

I’m not sure which part I like better: the fact that they try to get you to sign up for SMS alerts when you fill out the application, or the fact that, if chosen, you’ll apparently be rolled into a giant Reds Rally Katamari.
Soon it'll be rolling up Gapper and Logan Ondrusek
