We've all been asked it at some point. That hypothetical question about what job we'd be doing if money was no object. Mine is easy: I'd be one of those people that sit on the field in foul territory to fetch foul balls during professional games. Getting to watch professional baseball games on the field? Sure. Occasionally getting to show off my hand-eye coordination? Why not. Getting to delight young children and adults alike by handing them foul balls? Heck yes to it all. But, alas, by the time I've amassed my fortune from my real job (which is, admittedly, pretty cool), I won't be young and spry and I think most major league teams don't want to risk having some lady die on the field because she can't react to a foul ball in time. So while I still occasionally daydream about being a ballgirl, I've shifted a bit to thinking more about what I could actually do when I retire and through our travels settled on giving stadium tours, preferably at Fenway. I know this is the holy grail for retired people who want to give stadium tours, and living in Boston upon retirement will require quite the savings account (which is not helped by our love of travelling to cool stadiums) but hey, a girl can dream.
Just a couple of sports fans touring the world, one stadium at a time.
