Victorino to appear on Animal Planet program

Boston Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino, a St. Anthony High School graduate, is to appear on an episode of the Animal Planet show “Tanked” that will debut Friday, showing an aquarium built in his Las Vegas home.

The program follows the Las Vegas-based aquarium manufacturing company Acrylic Tank Manufacturing as it, according to the Animal Planet website, “produces some of the most outrageous, larger-than-life and one-of-a-kind tanks for some of the most striking fish and clients around.”

A clip on the channel’s site says the company will build a cylindrical tank “teeming with coral and fish native to Hawaii, bringing a piece of Maui to Las Vegas.”

The episode, which will also include NASCAR driver Ryan Newman, is to debut at 7 p.m. Friday, and be shown again at 9 p.m., with additional repeats this week and next.
