Offseason sub teachers!?!

Bobby Scales and Micah Hoffpauir aren't making Major League salaries, so they have part-time jobs in the offseason as substitute teachers. Scales, 30, helps out at Milton High School in Alpharetta, Ga., while Hoffpauir, 28, teaches kids from fifth grade and up in Jacksonville, Tenn.

"I realized I had to do something," said Scales, a non-roster invitee in Cubs camp.

He has a routine with the students.

"I start, 'How are you guys doing -- I'm Mr. Scales, for those of you who don't know me,'" he said. "'Your teacher is not here today. Your assignment is on the board.'"

He'll ask one of the students he knows to take roll call, then gets another one to start a DVD.

"'I'm going to be right here, reading the paper,'" Scales said of his speech.

Scales has been subbing since 1999. Hoffpauir started in 2004.

"The worst one I had was [advanced placement] calculus for a week," Scales said. "These kids are smart. I didn't do anything for a week. I barely got through regular calculus."

And when Scales wants to play golf, he'll call the school and tell them.

"It's so flexible, so easy," Scales said. "It's enough to pay the bills."
That's really cool! And it would be an ideal job for the players, as it almost fits with a techer's schedule!
Baseball season's underway...
So you'd better get ready for a brand new day
Hey Chicago whattya say?
