The Long Island Ducks have been associated with some familiar names of late -- Dontrelle Willis, Carlos Zambrano, Vladimir Guerrero -- and you too can join that list.

No, the Ducks aren't holding open tryouts. Not for their ball club anyway. But the organization is in search of what they're referring to as a "Dunk Tank Dude," as originally reported on Deadspin.

The Ducks listed the job description on their web site as such: "The Long Island Ducks, 2012 Atlantic League Champions, are looking for an outgoing person to be the main attraction in their new dunk tank. This is an hourly position that requires a unique personality and a tremendous amount of enthusiasm. 'Dunk Tank Dude' will be in charge of drawing attention and generating revenue. Obviously, the ideal candidate is comfortable getting wet/dunked numerous times throughout the evening. The dunk tank is open every game."

It's not exactly starting centerfielder for the Yankees, but at least you could tell your friends you work in baseball.
