Beach Bums Offer Former Ohio State Coach Jim Tressel Internship

PRESS RELEASE – The Traverse City Beach Bums have decided to offer former Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel the opportunity to join the Beach Bums for the 2011 season.

The Beach Bums will look to enroll Tressel and his apparent knowledge in the merchandise and memorabilia area to help promote the Beach Bums in Northern Michigan. As a merchandise intern, the Beach Bums will be sure to provide intense supervision and institute strict rules about the distribution and sale of Beach Bums merchandise.

As a member of the staff, Tressel will also be required to wear the Beach Bums team colors, maize and blue throughout his internship when working at Wuerfel Park. Email usage will also be strictly monitored so the Beach Bums will be informed of any important information when it’s FIRST received.

The Beach Bums do their best to give their interns the full experience of how the front office of a minor league baseball team works. This includes networking and building business relationships with their various sponsors. However, in this instance Tressel will not be interacting with the sponsors directly, especially the car dealerships and tattoo parlors in the area.

John Wuerfel, the COO of the Traverse City Beach Bums who also has two sons that both graduated from the University of Michigan, was asked his thoughts on Jim Tressel’s resignation. Wuerfel replied “Ahhh, that’s too bad. Go Blue!”

The Traverse City Beach Bums are members of the Frontier League, an independent baseball league with teams in seven Midwest states. The Beach Bums are entering their sixth season of play in 2011. Please phone 231-943-0100 for more information.

    This isn’t even close to being funny. Even though you are big MICH fans and I can understand that you would think “how funny are we”. The guy deserved to lose his job but you should stick to running your team,which you do very well. You aren’t working for Saturday Night Live.Oh for the days when Minor League baseball was about the baseball and not foolish crap like this. Tressel has the cash-he could buy your team,which you are trying to sell from what we hear.
