Series kicks off on Sept. 24
The newest season of Survivor will feature none other than former Major League Baseball pitcher John Rocker, according to CBS Sports.
The retired pitcher, who played portions of six seasons in the MLB, will compete in Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water, which will debut on Sept. 24, CBS says.
Rocker is notoriously remembered for the bigoted comments he made about New Yorkers during a widely publicized interview in Sports Illustrated in 1999.
“I was raised in a professional baseball clubhouse and still carry a lot of that idiocy with me,” said Rocker in a trailer released by CBS.
The former reliever will appear on the show alongside his girlfriend Julie McGee.
