LOS ANGELES, Apr 24, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) –
Twelve of the greatest players in Major League Baseball history come to television on Sunday, May 6, (1pm EDT/10am PDT) when AGA Sports Entertainment and CBS give sports fans the chance to join The Players Club for an hour of competition. Battling it out are legends Bo Jackson, Randy Johnson, Wade Boggs, Steve Garvey, Ozzie Smith, Frank Thomas, Gary Sheffield, John Smoltz, Trevor Hoffman, Rob Dibble, Harold Reynolds and Joe Carter. These Hall of Famers and future Hall of Famers clash in Las Vegas, doing what they do best: competing, but this time the game isn’t baseball. Instead, they face off in five different athletic events – basketball, golf, a skills course, poker, and go-kart racing to see who’s still got it.
Hosting is former MLB bad boy David “Boomer” Wells and CBS Sports personality Amber Wilson, with a special guest appearance that could only happen in Vegas. It’s an opportunity to catch up with your favorite players as they meet on a whole new field of competition.
Executive Producers Bill Garnet and Jacque Lueth of AGA Sports Entertainment, both die-hard sports fans, believe people want to see their heroes having fun while they compete, and plan to expand The Players Club to include athletes from football, basketball, hockey, and beyond. TLK Fusion Founder/President, Ken Collis, stated “Baseball has always been America’s favorite pastime, and being able to bring the most renowned players back into the public eye for something like this is incredible! These are Hall-of-Fame baseball players! We are ecstatic to be a part of a project of this magnitude!”
