Some unlikely names have been thrown into the hat of those approved by Major League Baseball to enter a mid for a minority ownership of the New York Mets.
They are calling them the Entourage, because they are all a part of HBO’s hit series, ‘Entourage.’
According to the New York Daily News, the MLB has approved ‘Entourage’ executive producer Doug Elin, as well as cast members Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, and Ed Burns to enter a bid for minority ownership of the franchise, who are currently owned by Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz.
Wilpon and Katz are seeking out a new minority owner to add some cash to the struggling franchise.
Not sure that sounds like the best investment, but Connolly told the New York Daily news of them making a bid:
“I’m a giant sports fan and to be involved in a professional sports franchise would be a dream come true. Growing up on Long Island, I was a giant Mets fan, so that makes it even more of a dream come true.”
Sounds like something they could write into the script!
