It's been a minute since we caught up with hunkalicious and skinny dipping Shemar Moore, so, here is the latest. The star of CBS' Criminal Minds recently returned to his Boston roots and is the subject of a flattering profile in the Boston Globe. The reporter is Johnny Diaz, the out Cuban American writer and author of the new gay romantic novel Boston Boys Club. Given the writer's background—plus Shemar's own colorful back story—we couldn't help but smile when the actor described his recent appearance at a (ugh) Red Sox Game.
"To come to my hometown and throw the first pitch out in Fenway Park and to get to do it in front of my family for a team I wanted to play for, it was a dream come true," says Moore, who spent part of his childhood in Brighton, where he played Little League baseball and aspired to be a professional ballplayer. "To stand on that mound, I mean, I was a nervous wreck. All I cared about was, please don't bounce it, please don't bounce it."
Shemar fans and sports nuts should like this one. The Globe profile details the actor's days as a star Little League, high school and minor league player. Funny. We always figured Shemar Moore was much more of catcher than a pitcher.
