HONOLULU - Shane Victorino is scheduled to have a role in an episode of the television show "Hawaii Five-0."
"Pumped to be part of Hawaii Five-0 cast for upcoming episode! Will make Hawaii proud," the Philadelphia Phillies outfielder from Wailuku posted on his Twitter page on Thursday, adding thanks to executive producer Peter Lenkov and CBS.
Victorino will be part of a Jan. 31 taping, according to Lisa Young, a director of Victorino's foundation, who said the 31-year-old will portray a character, not himself.
