Starting to think about baseball? How about joining the Mariners — as an employee?

Now that we’ve put the Super Bowl behind us (we have put it behind us, haven’t we?) it’s time to start thinking about springtime, sunshine, and baseball. The Mariners spring training schedule starts the first week of March, and the regular season home opener is April 6. But how about taking your commitment to the Ms and kicking it up a notch — by actually working for the team! Hey, if George Costanza could do it, you could too!
