Job search turns into tour of ballparks

CINCINNATI (AP) - A Washington, D.C. couple who lost their government jobs are turning a job search into a tour of the nation's major league ball parks.

Roberto Coquis and Judy Pino say the idea hit them when they traveled to Indianapolis for job interviews. They had already been to a game in Washington to see the Nationals, so they have added home games with the Cleveland Indians, Chicago Cubs, Kansas City Royals, St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates.

On Sunday, they were in Cincinnati to see the Reds and Chicago White Sox, then left for Atlanta to see the Braves play the New York Yankees.

With their 18-week-old daughter, Sofia, they expect to visit all 30 major league parks this summer, leaving resumes along the way.
