William Shatner Is New Boston Red Sox Umpire – in a Music Video

Posted on

The captain of the Enterprise has landed behind home plate at Boston’s venerable Fenway Park.

William Shatner, 81, is no stranger to kooky parody, from his recent Oscar cameo to his ads. Now, he’ll portray a home plate umpire for the Boston Red Sox in a baseball inspired video for crooner Brian Evans. See the trailer below.

“It’s my fantasy, my field of dreams,” Evans, 42, said in a press release of the campy video for the song, “At Fenway,” produced by Narada Michael Walden. “Shatner as the home plate umpire is as iconic as the ballpark itself.”

Evans’ mother, Helen Bousquet, also stars in the video along with car magnate Ernie Boch Jr. who plays the Red Sox manager. The video has the blessing of Major League Baseball as well as the Red Sox management.

It marked Shatner’s first trip to Fenway park. Ever.
