Well, what about those that do it for fun?
We can now thank Commissioner Damon, as in, Johnny Damon, for his irrefutable dedication to the growing sport of Video Gaming.
On a serious note, Damon is starting a Professional Baseball Video Game League in which he’ll get a chance to tussle online with his fellow peers. Of course, we all know they’ll all be engaging in a friendly game of…Microsoft’s Project Gotham Racing 3 for Xbox 360…
The first season’s roster also includes former Cub Corey Patterson and Rodrigo Lopez of the Orioles, Craig Hansen and Julian Tavarez of the Red Sox, Matt Holliday and Willy Taveras of the Rockies, Prince Fielder of the Brewers, Josh Barfield of the Indians, Derek Lowe of the Dodgers, Seth McClung of the Devil Rays, Mike Pelfrey of the Mets, Luke Hochevar of the Royals and Dallas McPherson of the Angels.
“The league is bringing together two of my biggest passions — baseball and video games — in a way that neither baseball fans nor video gamers have seen before,” Damon said in a statement.
What’s with these ball players and video games? Doesn’t Damon have in his off-time?
