    This would be a sweet gig to have. But what I'm not clear on is the location of the job. Do you need to live and work in New York City to do the job?

    Candidates should be able to work in New York City, at least at the start of the baseball season.

    Up to 32 hours a week? Does that mean this is part time with no/limited benefits?

    Last sentence before primary responsibilities: "This is a part-time, seasonal position." Doubt benefits since it is seasonal.
