SPRINGDALE (KFSM) -  Dozens of people came out to the Northwest Arkansas Naturals' job fair on Tuesday (Mar. 10) at Arvest Ballpark in Springdale.

The job fair was held from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Sam's Club Community Room at the ballpark.

"We have anyone from highschoolers that come out to work in our kid zone or help work as an usher all the way up to folks looking for a second job during the summer just to get out and stay active," said Naturals General Manager Justin Cole. "We also have some seniors that again just want to get out and be active."

The team took applications and conducted on-site interviews for part-time Gameday associates for the 2015 season. Positions available include Bat Boys, Grounds Crew, Mascot, Ushers, Kids Zone Attendants, Retail Associates and Ticket and Program Sellers.

"You still have to do some of the things you have to do at any job, but you get to have a baseball game going on," Cole said. "There's a lot of  great people and a lot of great families that come out and they're coming here to have fun, so you get to be the person that allows them to have fun."

The Northwest Arkansas Naturals open the season on Thursday, April 9th in Midland, Texas.
