TV anchor does a little field work

It's about time Harry Smith put in an honest day's work.

The co-anchor of "CBS This Morning," who may be leaving the show soon, spent yesterday helping tend the grounds at Oriole Park at Camden Yards for one of his "Hey Harry, Do My Job" segments.

Mr. Smith, whose previous jobs-for-a-day have included minister, dairy farmerand blue-crab fisherman, started his workday at 8: 30 a.m. as a part of groundskeeper Paul Zwaska's crew. His duties included mowing the grass, chalking the field and raking the dirt to remove rocks. He worked through last night's game against the Red Sox, ending well after the final out.

For some fans, of course, working the grounds at Camden Yards would be a pleasure. You'll see what Mr. Smith thought when the spot airs the week of May 13.
