Hi all, Just back from Boston and the PA tryouts, along with hundreds of others that were by invitation only tonight. We arrived, were given a number at registration. a script, a sign in form for the interview and then proceeded to the media dining room. There you waited your turn for a short interview and then take your turn reading the script before the microphone high above Fenway Park. The lights were off unfortunately, so couldn't see a thing. I went for the experience and to announce at Fenway Park, as I'm sure others did and will do again on Saturday. The shocking thing for me was what they are paying, which is $50.00 a game-that's barely above high school pay and in some cases less than what I've made doing high school. I knew it wasn't much, but $50.00? Really? Good luck to any others who tried out tonight or plan to Saturday. Oh-Did get to Meet Owners Larry Lucchino and Dr. Steinberg who came through briefly.
