Kenny Powers

Kenny Powers
  • TV Show/Movie Appeared: Eastbound and Down (2009-)
  • Actor/Actress: Danny McBride
  • Position Portrayed: Pitcher
  • Played For:: Charros (Mexican League), Myrtle Beach Mermen
  • Why you should vote:: Because it is Kenny “Fucking” Powers!
  • Why you should not vote:: In terms of pitching performance on the show, he is well below the hurler’s version of the “Mendoza Line”.
  • : Generally it takes a bit of a time for fictitious sports athletes to become legendary, but Kenny Powers did so immediately right from the first episode on HBO’s Eastbound and Down.

    Loosely based on former pitcher John Rocker (especially after that infamous SI interview), took the Redneck southern stereotype and cranked it to eleven on the “Crudometer”. Nearly every episode, gives a new instant classic moment and we don’t know whether we really want to cheer for the mulleted one as his wallowing in baseball obscurity is a constant recipe for laughter. This could well be the first “active” Fictitious Athlete to enter the Hall of Fame.
