Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Others Get Animated

It's been more than 20 years since Mr. Burns put together the finest baseball team ever assembled during the epic episode "Homer at the Bat", but faster than you can say "The Simpsons did it"…"The Cleveland Show" is dipping its toe into similar waters.

During the upcoming episode "California Dreamin'", the show's titular character, Cleveland Brown, heads to Los Angeles to follow his lifelong dream of becoming a big league scout (who knew?) and along the way, runs into some familiar faces.  Joining the show are current Dodgers Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier, as well as perennial All-Stars David Ortiz, Joey Votto and Jimmy Rollins.

How does it all play out?  Will Cleveland Brown do something wacky that will embarrass his new boss?  Will current Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly show up sans sideburns?  So many questions!
