Now, I've seen and heard it all! Nich Lachey has taken up baseball in WA State...go figure!! Here is the article from KOMO 4 News.
TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Singer Nick Lachey says he jumped at the opportunity to be a part owner of the Tacoma Rainiers with Schlegel Sports.
He says he intends to play an active role in the ownership.
The pop singer who was once married to Jessica Simpson, wore the Rainiers' jersey as he was introduced Wednesday in Tacoma. He will own a third of the baseball franchise.
The Rainiers are the Seattle Mariners' Class AAA club in the Pacific Coast League. As part of the sale, the new owners signed a two-year lease and affiliation agreement.
The new owners say Lachey will be involved in developing entertainment for families, including concerts and autograph sessions.
