Game Day Entertainers
The 2019 season will mark the Sioux City Explorers 27th season in Siouxland and 14th season as a member of the American Association of Professional Baseball. The City of Sioux City in conjunction with the Sioux City Explorers are looking to make changes and improvements to the stadium and to the fan experience during games. We are looking for a group of people who would like to let their creative, goofy side break through by creating characters to entertain the crowd.
You will get paid to hang out in the ballpark and mingle with fans throughout the game and help those who may not be the world’s biggest baseball fans still have a great time in the stands. The best description that we have come across for this position is one part cheerleader, one part vaudeville actor, and one part rodeo clown.
We are looking for a group of people that can rotate throughout the summer schedule. After all, we’re pretty sure only the full time staff is crazy enough to be there for all 50 home games. We want you to create a character complete with costume, make-up, and whatever personality comes along with it (within reason of course). You will be “in-character” from the time the gates open until the game is over.
If you would like to see the all-time greatest example of this type of activity, do a quick search for Max Patkin online, the “Clown Prince of Baseball”. The next best source for what we are looking for comes from a team in our league, the Saint Paul Saints. We are flat-out stealing their idea for this. You can see their team at this link: http://saintsbaseball.com/fun/entertainment-team1
If you would prefer to pick up a few summer hours working for us in a more traditional role, we are also looking for box office staff, ticket takers, and ushers.
Send us your name, resume’, and contact info along with a brief description of your idea for a character you would like to develop. We will reach out to set up a time for us to meet and see what we can figure out.

The Explorers’ season runs from May 16 through August 31.
