Not a bad way to earn a day’s pay

Lynn Vena gets a chance to watch every Mariners home game from a spot in behind home plate in the lower bowl.

Oh, and she gets paid for it.

Vena works for the Mariners as a seating host – she’s the one that helps you find your spot and tells others not to walk around during at-bats – and she works most Seattle home games. She’s in her third year at Safeco.

"I couldn’t not be here – to be a part of baseball is just great."

Vena also occasionally works the gate and special events at the ballpark. She said it’s still hard to believe she gets to watch games, interact with fans and draw a paycheck for it.

"To be able to watch baseball and get paid for it – it’s just amazing."
