Backstreet Boys Brian Littrell Plays Baseball: Look + Listen

On Saturday night (9.01,) Backstreet Boys’ Brian Littrell played for the Savannah Bananas at Grayson Stadium.

A member of the legendary music group that took over the world more than 20 years ago, and Jeremy Guthrie (who played 13 seasons in the big leagues) was in town to pitch with a group of players from the MLBPAA in the final game of a three-game Challenger Series against the Bananas. The relationship between the member of the 2015 Royals World Series champs and pop icon began way back in 2010.

Litrell said “Jeremy [Guthrie] called me and said, ‘Dude, you wanna come play?'” “I said, ‘Dude, that would be a dream come true.'”

Guthrie added “We actually met at a concert in Baltimore.” “I was pitching there and by happenstance, his bodyguard recognized me and came up to me. We talked baseball, he asked if I’d like to meet Brian afterwards. It was a blast, we really hit it off. Since then, we’ve stayed in great contact. He’d go to games and watch me and I’d go to shows and watch him.”

A high school baseball player who loves the game, Littrell seemed excited about his at-bats. Mostly because his son was a big fan of the Bananas.

Brian’s arrival to the batter’s box was electric as the entire ballpark swayed to the Backstreet Boys’ biggest hit. Unfortunately, however, Littrell’s at-bats were disappointing as the 48-year-old struck out against his friend Guthrie in his first appearance. In his second and final appearance of the night (accompanied by another huge BSB hit), Littrell struck out again.
