Batter Up! Nick Swisher to Guest Star on How I Met Your Mother

at . Comments

Known for his power at the plate, New York Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher will soon try to knock a guest-starring gig on a popular sitcom out of the park.

The World Series champion will take a swing at comedy in early 2010, as he appears on an episode of How I Met Your Mother. Swisher will show up as himself, dropping by MacLaren's bar and creating a problem for Barney because all the women swoon over the athlete.

In real life, the woman in Swisher's life is likely responsible for landing him this role: he's been linked to actress Joanna Garcia, who guest-starred on the show this season as Maggie, a girl Ted crushed on in college.

Swisher's episode is tentatively scheduled to air February 1.
