It appears Big Papi will be taking his talents off the field and producing a show for MTV with fellow MLB all star, Andrew McCutchen to produce a 30 episode series for MTV Networks. The show will be filmed at the old Tower Records building in NYC; now the home of MLB’s Fan Cave.
Apparently, Ortiz won the hearts of MTV execs (what’s not to love?!) when he walked around enemy territory asking for hugs from Yankee fans. Ortiz and MTV execs believe that it will be easy to bring musicians and ball players together because players want to be musicians and vice versa.
We obviously wish Big Papi luck in anything that he does but the whole idea is a little concerning…What do you think?
