Programming note: MLB's new 'Off the Bat' show on MTV set to debut

By now, we've told you all about "Off the Bat," the new MLB show that premieres Tuesday night on MTV2. So just consider this a reminder to tune in if you're curious to see what a pop culture-meets-baseball show on MTV looks like.

The show is hosted by Rapper Fat Joe, MTV personality/radio host Sway, model/actress Melanie Iglesias and comedian Chris Distefano, and stems from the MLB Fan Cave. David Ortiz is an executive producer and players such as Robinson Cano, Jose Fernandez, Adam Jones, Craig Kimbrel and Wil Myers are schedule to appear throughout the season. Bryce Harper will be featured in the premiere.

The video above is a taste of what the show will be like — Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton taking BP in a junkyard, taking aim at car windows with encouragement from Igleisas.

"Off the Bat" airs at 11 p.m. ET.
