Whats more unexpected: that MTV is doing a show about Major League Baseball or that David Ortiz and Andrew McCutchen are getting creative credits?

MTV Networks and Major League Baseball said Monday they are collaborating on a weekly 30-episode series that melds pop culture and baseball. Ortiz and Pittsburgh Pirates All-Star outfielder Andrew McCutchen are both executive producers of the series, set to begin next spring around the start of the new season.

Itll air on MTV2 and will be filmed in the Fan Cave in New York. Itll be a decidedly off-the-field thing, dealing with music, lifestyles and stuff like that. MLBs Executive VP for Business Tim Brosnan describes it as something which can promote the game to MTVs younger demographic.
