Red Sox: 'Support the Wally program with Wallies.'
Need a job? The Red Sox are looking to hire a second Wally, which gives the Philocrites family its favorite recent example of corporate-speak: "We want to make sure that we support the Wally program with Wallies," said team spokeswoman Susan Goodenow. The Globe Names column (fifth item) says, "According to an MLB job posting, applicants must be available on weekdays, weeknights, weekends, and holidays — in other words, every day — and have a minimum of one year experience as a sports mascot, theme-park character, or actor. Most importantly, applicants must be able to withstand high heat and be able to lift 50 pounds." What a job!
