Have Glove, Will Travel

So you play softball eh? If you can hit and want to pick up a little pocket money, then head on over to the great state of Florida, because they’re looking for some ringers. At least the state Corrections Department may be, after having to fire their last one.

It seems one Mark Guerra, a former minor leaguer, was on the state jailers payroll to provide some type of work at a Florida prison library. Guerra was really accepting a paycheck in exchange for his softball services in a tournament held last May by Corrections Secretary Jim Crosby.

The State Attorney General announced that Guerra agreed to repay $1,400 and complete 50 hours of community service after being charged with accepting checks for bogus work. Crosby was fired by Governor Jeb Bush last month.
