Are you a huge Chico the Chihuahua fan?! Have you always imagined what it would be like to entertain the crowd at the El Paso Chihuahuas games? Well, if that is you then you are in luck!

Southwest University Park will be hosting its 2023 job fair this Saturday, February 18th and they will be on the search for an official mascot performer for the El Paso Chihuahuas 2023 baseball season. 

According to the job posting online, this is a full-time position, and qualifications needed to fill the position include:

•Previous experience as a mascot is a must, we will require some form of audition videos

•Strong project management skills

•Excellent excel and writing skills required

•Must have a valid driver's license

Candidates must be 16 years old to apply and must be able to pass a background check, and work all home games and additional events as needed.

Now, I’ve never been a mascot myself but I have invited Chico the Chihuahua to a few of my son's birthday parties so I know that to be Chico you must love interacting with kids, dancing, and most importantly you must love giving hugs!
