My only question is this: What took them so long? Shane Victorino and CBS’s Hawaii Five-0 had to run into each other eventually. Now that we are smack dab in the middle of the MLB offseason, it’s happening. According to theFive0s.com, the Flyin’ Hawaiian will be a guest star in the Feb. 20 episode of the show. Olympic speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno will be joining him.
Five-0 investigates the murder of a man dressed as a Hawaiian NaKoa warrior found in the jungle near the site of a historical war re-enactment. Philadelphia Phillies outfielder and Hawaii native Shane “The Flyin’ Hawaiian” Victorino guest stars as a business executive on a company retreat. Olympic speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno, the most decorated American Winter Olympic athlete of all time, guest stars as a Hawaiian history buff who helps Five-0 with the case.
As Big League Stew pointed out, Victorino called the appearance a “small scene” on Twitter, but we know anything the Flyin’ Hawaiian does is bound to be big enough. He’s going to fit in perfectly. How could he not?
