January 30, 2013 - Frontier League (FL) Schaumburg Boomers

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. - If you've always dreamed of fame and adoration in the form of a giant male prairie chicken, get ready for your big break because on March 16, the Schaumburg Boomers will hold open auditions for the face of the franchise and the funniest fowl of them all.

"Only the finest specimens are allowed to join our flock, so we're looking for talented performers who can strut, cluck and dance with the best of them," said Andy Viano, Boomers President and General Manager. "It's never an easy choice to pick who rules the roost, but we'll take on this challenge beak-first."

The Schaumburg Boomers are looking for an enthusiastic, energetic, and passionate individual to take on the persona of a giant male prairie chicken at all 2013 home games and to entertain fans with the wacky, engaging, and entertaining brand of fun of Boomer Country. Needless to say, flawless Boomer Dancing is a must. The performer will be an integral part of the in-game entertainment experience at Boomers Stadium.

The individual must show creativity and initiative in coming up with daily crowd interaction, engagement, entertainment, and promotions. The performer will have designated in-game duties, including but not limited to the Boomer Dance, Mascot Race, and other between-inning contests. Mascot will also be expected to meet and greet with fans prior to and after each game.

If you are an expert tail-shaker, full of hugs and high-fives, please report to Boomer Stadium on Saturday, March 16 at 10 a.m. Potential prairie chickens should refer to the complete job description, and if you think you have what it takes, fill out the questionnaire and submit it in advance to sromano@boomersbaseball.com.

Auditions will begin at 10 a.m., and candidates should come dressed in athletic attire (athletic shorts are encouraged). Audition process will consist of a panel interview, followed by a one-minute song and dance routine of the candidate's choosing. All candidates must provide their own music, and be sure to practice for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

The sophomore season of Boomers Baseball will begin on Thursday, May 16 at 6:30 p.m. when the Boomers take on the Windy City Thunderbolts in Schaumburg.
