Baltimore Orioles Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. is going to be doing some national TV hosting on April 25 in what seems like a match made in baseball and television heaven.
Ripken will serve as host on AMC for a showing of the 2002 film, The Rookie, starring Dennis Quaid. As host, Ripken will "talk candidly about the film, his love of baseball and his record-breaking career" in segments that were taped at the Cal Ripken Baseball Complex in Aberdeen, according to the movie channel.
In the film, Quaid plays Jim Morris, a former pitcher whose career was ended by injury, now trying to resurrect his major league dream.
The Rookie premieres at 8 p.m. April 25.
