The Newark Bears are offering some fans the chance to be “team owner for a day” if they win a contest, according to an email they sent out last week.
The Bears are looking for sharp, business-savvy, creative individuals (and perhaps, future baseball executives) that will help us pack Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium! Work hand-in-hand with the Bears’ front office and plan a game at our ballpark YOUR way….
Applicants must provide: Full name, company name (if applies), mailing address, phone number, email address, website(s) and social media site(s), full DOB, a recent head shot, resume, prepare a brief description of why you think you would be the best owner of the day (200 words or less) and a brief projected outline of how you would plan your special day if chosen. Deadline for submissions is March 11, 2013 at 12 p.m. All required information must be properly submitted within one email.
To apply or ask for more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org. It seems like it’s going to be The Apprentice without Donald Trump and the television cameras instead of the typical baseball contest. Good luck to anyone who decides to enter.
The Bears also plan to hold a press conference to formally announce Garry Templeteon as the team’s manager for 2013 this week.
In other recent news about local teams:
- The Brooklyn Cyclones announced that their 2012 coaching staff will return intact in 2013. Rich Donnelly will manage the club, with Marc Valdes serving as pitching coach and Bobby Malek handling the hitting coach duties. Speaking as someone who just goes to one or two Cyclones games per year, I miss the days when someone like Wally Backman or Frank Viola was on the coaching staff.
- The Trenton Thunder has some new 20th Season merchandise in their online store. I’m hoping there will be some caps and/or pins by the time the season begins.
