We're Hiring Field Setup Crew Members

Teenagers, who are you looking to make some extra spending money?  We have just the job for you.  We need field setup crew members to set up the field prior to games.  The schedule is flexible in that you select the games you are available to do the set up.  The work is pretty simple and takes around and hour.  Daily tasks include removing tarps from fields, dragging/raking infield dirt, chalking the batters box/baselines, emptying the trash cans and light bathroom cleaning/stocking.  We also have bathroom deep cleaning shifts that pay a little extra.
