"I love baseball," Daniel Morrison said while waiting in line at the Lansing Center Saturday afternoon.

Hundreds and hundreds of people lined the halls hoping to land summer positions for the Lansing Lugnuts.

"If I can make a little money and catch a little baseball at the same time that's a good deal," Morrison said.

The job fair started at 10am but people were in line well before.

"When I came back it was a long line," Larry Artis said.

Lugnuts staff say more than 1,000 people attended and it served as a reminder of how tough the economy is.

"These jobs are really nice for people because they're good summer jobs, good second incomes for people that are looking for some extra gas money, extra money to be able to do things with their children," Patrick Day, the Lugnuts General Manager said.

But for those who have been unemployed these positions offer more than extra cash, it's a chance to get back on their feet.

"I had people that I was delivering food to, business was going good then my car broke down and that messed up my catering business," Artis said.

The team is looking to fill everything from retail to on-field entertainment.
