The highly popular and beloved HBO drama, Entourage, has recently visited New York’s Yankee stadium in the Bronx. mark teixeira cameo entourage1 300x262 HBO’s Entourage Pays Yankee Stadium a VisitShooting its eighth and final season, creator Doug Ellin has written in cameos for a number of sports stars like Amar’e Stoudemire and most recently Yankees stars, Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira.

A-Rod and Teixeira will be playing the role of potential investors for Jerry Ferrara’s character, Turtle. Turtle is looking to bring a Queens restaurant across the country to LA and he is looking to some of these A-List players for support.

This past Tuesday’s game between the Yankees and the Red Sox left Teixeira injured. Jon Lester pitched a 90-mph cutter into his right knee that led to Teixeira being helped off the stage by manager Joe Girardi, Tony Pena, and trainer Gene Monahan in the first inning.

Although the Yankees lost to the Red Sox 6-4 and he was hurt, Teixeira was fortunately well enough to appear with Rodriguez to shoot the cameo at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday, June 8. The actual screen time may only be a 20-second spot but it took the boys over an hour to film the right shot.Rodriguez+Teixeira Yankees 300x300 HBO’s Entourage Pays Yankee Stadium a Visit

Lester, Ortiz and the rest of the team have said that of course they don’t want to see injuries like that during a game. “It was just a cutter that just ran in. And it hit him,” Ortiz said. “We were hurting when we saw that, too. You don’t want to see that happening.” But surely instances like this don’t help the already fueled rivalry between the two teams.

At least Teixeira and the rest of the team can sooth these types of blows with impressive opportunities like cameos in hit HBO shows like Entourage. “It was fun,” Teixeira said about the experience.
