Scotty McCreery got to combine two of his favorite pastimes, baseball and music, recently, when he taped an upcoming special episode of GAC’s Top 20 Countdown at the Major League Baseball Network’s Studio 42 in Secaucus, N.J. McCreery got to share the hosting seat with MLB analysts and former major leaguers Mitch “Wild Thing” Williams and Kevin Millar for the special show, which features a segment with McCreery pitching with Williams and an in-studio game with all four personalities.

Named for Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson, Studio 42 is an actual replica baseball field featuring a one-third scale turf infield and a pitcher’s mound. Adding to the authenticity are stadium lights, dugouts, and an outfield wall complete with padding, brick designs and an out-of-town scoreboard updated in real time.

“Co-hosting Top 20 Countdown is always fun,” said McCreery. “But getting to do it from Studio 42 was incredible. If you’re a fan of baseball like I am, it’s a really cool place to hang out. I watch both the MLB Network and Great American Country all the time, so working with both teams on this episode was a blast.”

The special episode where America’s favorite pastime meets America’s music will air this Fri. Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. CT.
