If you want to get your hands dirty, baseball is a nice place to start. It's a hard job, but someone's got to do it.

But what dirty jobs are out there in baseball? SB Nation and Jeep sent out one of the best players in league history to find out. In an ongoing series called "A Day's Work," Wade Boggs is going to visit many of the nation's finest ballparks and explore an interesting "dirty" job in each one. This week, we get the Hall of Famer visiting our very own Marlins Park, where he gets to go one-on-one with the fish in the on-deck aquarium!

The video goes into the day in the life of caring for the aquarium, as Wade speaks to Kevin Mathis, the man who runs the aquarium himself! Kevin and Wade go through what the daily upkeep of the large aquarium takes. We also get a tour behind the scenes to check out just how the aquarium supports itself. Finally, Wade gets his hands dirty and gets a shot at cleaning the tanks. He even gets a surprise visit from a former teammate and current Miami Marlins coach.

Hey, it's all in A Day's Work. Stay tuned in two weeks for more episodes of Wade Boggs tackling baseball's dirtiest jobs here on SB Nation.
