Mayes cast in ‘Hound Dogs’

Baseball pilot from Ron Shelton

Rob Mayes has been cast as one of the leads in Ron Shelton’s TBS minor league baseball pilot “Hound Dogs.”

Mayes, who has appeared in episodes of “Cold Case,” “Medium” and “Bones,” will play a sexy rookie pitcher whose love interest is a young woman (Laura Bell Bundy) attempting a career as a country singer but is currently a bartender.

Shelton, of course, is in his element with all things sports. His resume as a writer-director includes “Bull Durham,” “White Men Can’t Jump” and “Tin Cup.”

Others already cast include Chris Butler and Ryan Doom. “Hound Dogs” centers on a fictional Nashville team whose players and general manager have plenty of personal issues to contend with off the field.

Mayes is repped by WME.
