Off the Bat

Fat Joe and beloved hip hop talking head Sway Calloway are joining forces with the MLB's David Ortiz — you probably know him as "Big Papi" — for a new weekly program on MTV2, Off the Bat. Reportedly, the channel's already ordered some 30 episodes and athletes like Robinson Cano (signed to Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports) will executive produce individual shows.
