        Barry Bonds once played a few roles. But after a bad review, he stopped acting.

              I'm no judge but I would say he was a real actor having played in 3 movies and 5 or 6 seasons in Mr. Belvidere. I would have to think when he announces games he's different from his Major League character. I think he was a sportswriter in Mr. Belvidere.

              Did they ever have any MLB players on Mr. Belvidere.
              There was an episode that had a softball ame featuring players like Johnny Bench, Reggie Jackson and some other HOF'ers. It also featured singer Robert Goulet, who, for some reason, was Uecker's enemy on the show. But he was pretty much a family man who sometimes clashed with Mr. Belvedere on the show. The sports aspect was very minor.

                  I can't remember who the pitcher was, but I read a story where whomever Poffo was catching was throwing spitballs and he didn't know it. Poffo made a comment about how he was just perplexed how much movement the ball had and how difficult it was to catch. I imagined him using his Macho Man voice while talking to said pitcher.

                    Jackie Robinson played himself in The Jackie Robinson Story (1950). A bad movie about a great player, and not helped by the fact that Jackie spent all that time in college mastering four sports rather than being in the drama club.

                        And of course he was in several episodes of MXC: Most Extreme Elimination Challenge.

                        (Which, I might add, predated that ripoff Wipeout by several years)

                            I remember hearing The Macho Man exclaim,in reference to his former baseball career,that he had "traded my 'field of dreams' for a 'ring of screams'!

                                I had no idea Donlin was in that. It's arguably still the best Civil War film ever made.
