Hope it works out for you, my Dad was a huge Brooklyn Dodgers fan back in the day, it's been a few decades since they left, he will be over it any day now....lol

If you get the job, tell Alyssa Milano I said hi, she's always at the games.

**BIG UPDATE**

First off, thanks to all of you with such positive feedback and response. I don't think I updated you all about my 2nd interview, but to me, it went better than the first time. Following the interview, they told me they would contact us the following week about the job offers.

Earlier this afternoon, I received a phone call from the Dodgers offering me the position! Pending a background check, all should be clear and ready to go. I was so ecstatic after hanging up with them. It's honestly a dream come true, and I can't wait to see what comes out of this.

Now, I just have to begin my apartment search, so hopefully I will get some info and tips about certain areas there. I've done some research, and might come with questions about what I've found, but that will come at a later time. For now, I'm just going to enjoy the moment these next few days, and plan for this new move and chapter in my life. Thanks again !!!

I'm a resident of Texas, and I've been searching hard to get into the sports business for quite some time. I've applied to over 30 professional sports openings, but I prefer baseball out of them all. I was involved in similar projects when I was college for the baseball program, and worked in sports sales. Currently, I travel in mobile marketing.

Recently, I was hired for a part time gig for a baseball team close to Austin, Texas. It involves a bunch of customer service interaction with fans/promotional giveaways during games and such. But today when I was at work I received an e-mail from the Dodgers asking if I could come in for an interview. Their position is in the Premium department that involves servicing to clients in luxury suites, dugout boxes, and lots of guest relations/customer service type of work on game days.

My question is, which position would you consider? I do understand the cost of living out in LA, and would like to eventually move out to the area. Doing so right now may be too soon. I have the financial means to go, but at the same time, I wouldn't want to use up the savings I've been able to accumulate.

Should I stay or should I go? Both positions are similar. The job in Austin will probably have fewer hours with lower pay although both won't pay a lot. I also realize for either one, I will have to take on another job, but it shouldn't be too hard to come by as I have connections with marketing, and promotional campaigns. Of course, the Dodgers will look a lot better on a resume, but I wonder what other pros and cons there are. Thanks in advance.
Unless you want to stay in the minor leagues, then, I'd go with the Dodgers. That way you have MLB experience.
