MTV2 is constantly expanding its repertoire of male programming, which means adding even more sports into the mix, and recently, the network announced an exciting deal with Major League Baseball players David Ortiz and Andrew McCutchen. The popular pro athletes will executive produce a new series to bridge the gap between America’s favorite pastime and pop culture, and while the details are still pretty scarse, we can tell you that it will spotlight some of the biggest names in baseball, exploring their lives on and off the diamond. “It is going to be a lot of fun to show a different side of baseball and the players,” McCutchen said of the project, slated for April 2014.

From spring until fall, you can’t flip the channel without catching a glimpse of men in stirrups, but these days, it’s not uncommon to see a ball player grace the TV screen out of uniform as well (ahem, New York Yankees). In honor of MTV2’s new endeavor, we’ve gathered a list of MLB standouts who’ve made some memorable cameos. Check ’em out, and tell us how you think the guys performed!
