Ethier will be heading down to the Dominican Republic for the third annual David Ortiz Celebrity Golf Classic, which starts Thursday.
He took some time to answer a few questions for NESN.com.
1. Is L.A. lifestyle anything like it is on Entourage?
Yeah, kind of. Where I live in L.A. is near a lot of the places where scenes are filmed on the show, but there aren’t as many parties, strippers and nice cars as they make L.A. out to have.
2. What’s your favorite Manny moment?
The game where [Manny] thought Joe [Torre] double-switched for him and [he thought he was] out of the rest of the game, although Joe actually hadn’t. The rest of the team ran out onto the field but we had no left fielder. So someone had to run in to the clubhouse to find Manny. He was already undressed and in the shower. After about a five-minute delay, Manny finally came running out to left field still zipping up his pants.
3. What city do you look forward to traveling to the most during the season and why?
Phoenix. My hometown. Nice to be with family and sleep in your own bed for a change.
4. If you could pick one pitcher to never have to face again in your career, who would it be?
