Returning to New York for the first time since joining the Seattle Mariners, All-Star Robinson Cano served as Executive Producer for this week's episode of "Off the Bat from the MLB Fan Cave," airing tonight on MTV2 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT, joining series hosts Sway, Chris Distefano and Melanie Iglesias in studio at the MLB Fan Cave.
As Executive Producer, Cano worked with MTV to help put together some of the creative concepts for the episode based on his interests and background. The episode will include a segment shot earlier this month in Seattle, in which Cano and Distefano took a tour of Cano's new stomping grounds in Seattle, including a visit to the famed Pike Place Market where they threw fish, left their mark on the gum wall and went souvenir shopping.
