Get Paid To Watch Baseball
How’s this for a job: Get paid to watch baseball, from the comfort of your own custom-designed cave. That’s reality for Mike O’Hara and Ryan Wagner. They beat out 10,000 others to win a Major League Baseball contest whose prize was to watch 2,430 games -- sometimes 13 at a time, on a grid of screens as summer work. It may be easy, but the hours are long: Work starts with the first pitch of the day and runs until the last out, even if it’s at 5am.
The men are watching the games from a couch in a former record store space in New York City. You could go by their first-floor window right now and watch them watching baseball. The men are part of their own reality series on MLBFanCave.com.
So if you could get paid for watching baseball all summer...Would you do it?
