Granderson has Stadium Secrets to share

However, if Major League Baseball free agency doesn't make him a household name, television might. Granderson has an idea for a reality series that's being shopped around now and it's not like anything else other athletes have pitched.

Granderson's series is called Stadium Secrets and it will be like History Channel's Cities of the Underworld. In fact, it might be suited to the History Channel. Granderson would host the show and lead viewers into the inner recesses and hidden passages of famous stadia around the world -- although it'll probably start with American locations.

Think about going into the back doors at Wrigley Field or under the stands at Fenway Park. Even a tour of the newer places like the Dallas Cowboy monolith or the new Yankee Stadium would be fascinating. I like this idea. It's not Terrell Owens' ridiculous VH1 series, The T.O. Show, nor is it the bizarre Keyshawn Johnson decorating show on A&E, Tackling Design.

Granderson has legit producers working with him, the same company that does Ace of Cakes and Flipping Out, so I wouldn't be surprised to see this on the air in 2010.

Or he could spend this time studying how to hit left handers.

A) If the Tigers are dumb enough to let Granderson go I'll never watch another game, but

B) If this show comes to fruition it'll immediately go onto my DVR. Granderson is smart, well spoken and kind-hearted. His show would be amazing!

Nitpick: Curtis Granderson is not a free agent.

I would watch this show.

The was already a show like this (filmed in high-definition) and shown on the late, great InHD a few years back called "Cathedrals of the Game."
