Actor offered baseball deal
George Clooney has been given the chance to live out his sporting dream and spend the summer playing baseball.
The movie star was offered a contract to play for Ohio minor league team the Dayton Dragons during a recent TV interview with top producer Peter Guber, who owns the team.
The Batman producer threw Clooney a curveball on cable show Shootout, hurling him a team hat and pitching him the chance to play baseball.
Guber said, "We're ready to sign you up, anytime you're ready."
The offer isn't as bizarre as it seems. Clooney was considered a prospect for Ohio's major league team the Cincinnati Reds when he was a teenager.
