grounds crew positions

Just wondering, I have often thought of getting job on a major league baseball grounds crew. What kind of experience do you need? Has anybody done it on here? What was it like? Good experience or bad?

Just wondering I have been running my own company for so long I just think of making changes. I think I would like it, but I don't know.

The market died last summer and has not rebounded. June of 08 things dove... still not coming around. Our county has 17% unemployment and most people here are self employed which makes it higher. There are no jobs available at all, people are either leaving for other places or staying at home collecting unemployment.
They say things are getting better but not here. Everything here job wise was second home market related. Foreclosures are everywhere and things are not selling unless it's 50% of value. Pretty bad....

I have thought about doing something like that too. I am in college right now, but would like to do something in the landscape field when I get out. I just wonder if something like working for a baseball grounds crew would be a full time thing though?
