Former Mets #1 draft pick and almost-superstar Lastings Milledge will be starring in a Japanese baseball reality show based on the movie “Mr. Baseball”, according to a source close to The Situation (hat tip to loyal MetsToday reader and commenter “Walnutz”).
After failing to fulfill his potential at several stops in MLB, the slick-rapping centerfielder and hip-hop mogul is taking his show to Japan – literally. Cameras will follow Milledge 24 hours a day, documenting every detail of his adventure in Asia.
“It’s a story people will want to see: an American assimilating himself to Asian culture, while also adjusting to the Japanese way of playing baseball,” said Wada “Bull” Shetter, one of the show’s producers.
