Road tripping with Dodgers player Orlando Hudson
Orlando Hudson, who owns an outgoing personality to go with the baseball skills that he uses with the Los Angeles Dodgers, will have a featured role on a show airing on ESPN on Thursday at 6 p.m. PT -- "Holiday Inn presents MLB '09: All Roads Lead to Baseball." The show is a one-hour special about players and coaches and the road trips that fill a major league baseball season.
Hudson will talk about traveling to New York and he takes viewers to his favorite NYC soul food places. Former Angels coach and present Tampa Bay Manager Joe Maddon is also a star as he bikes around the stadium in Kansas City.
The show will re-air on MLB Network beginning Aug. 22.
