The Single-A Myrtle Beach Pelicans (Carolina League) will celebrate “Eastbound & Down Night” Saturday, August 6th, by dedicating the evening’s fun and activities to rude and crude, washed-up pitcher Kenny Powers (Danny McBride) from HBO’s hit series Eastbound & Down.
Filming of the third and reportedly final season for the series recently began at BB&T Coastal Field. Apparently, Powers will be playing for the Myrtle Beach Mermen (yes, like male mermaids).
