The Miami Marlins (They’re a baseball team) are breaching the surface this new baseball season with a plea to musicians. Organists in particular. They’re looking for someone who can play the traditional baseball anthems that fill in between the innings and for when the team needs a boost. That means they might be playing non-stop for the entire game. They need some fan appreciation. But before that happens there are some songs that should be on the ‘must be able to play’ list.
That’s right; “I’m Sorry’ by Brenda Lee made the top of their list for prospective applicants.
Here are some others: When Will I See You Smile Again by Bell Biv DeVoe, Never Let U Go by Absolute, Stay by Jodeci, Sorry 4 2004 by Ruben Studdard, I Want You Back by the Jackson 5, Soon As I Get Home by Faith Evans, Before You Walk out of My Life by Monica, Need U Bad by Jazmine Sullivan, Never Should’ve Let You Go by Hi-Five, Hard to Say I'm Sorry by Chicago.
Additionally: The new organist cannot play any song that has ever been played in Cuba, can’t have the word ‘Cuba’ in the title, can’t play anything that ‘Fidel’ or his brother Raul like, cannot eat a ‘Cuban sandwich’ while playing or even on a lunch break, cannot do any songs that were ever sung by Desi Arnaz, and must not ever mention Ozzie Guillen’s name or even refer to ‘That previous manager’.
The new organist will make as much as many of the players which means a drop in pay for the organist.
That’s about it, have a good try-out!
