Along with whose mascot Lee Corso will put on his head at the end of the show, one of the great mysteries surrounding America’s most popular college football pregame show, ESPN’s College GameDay, is who will be invited onto the set to serve as a guest picker.

Miami, which hadn’t hosted College GameDay since 2006, offered plenty of football legends for ESPN to chose from. In the end, however, it appears the network settled on a star from another sport.

Alex Rodriguez, a Miami native and former professional baseball player, tweeted Friday that he will join the GameDay cast on set Saturday.

Rodriguez played 22 seasons in the major leagues and hit 696 career home runs — fourth-most all time. He is also a noted Hurricanes fan. Last week, when Miami played Virginia Tech, he was spotted in Hard Rock Stadium rocking a replica of Miami’s now-famous Turnover Chain.
