Former baseball player Jeff Kent, a five-time All-Star, will appear on the next season of Survivor, according to a report.

The report comes from SurvivorFever.net, a Survivor fan website, though multiple outlets have also reported that the former San Francisco Giant second baseman would appear on the 25th edition of the popular CBS reality television show. The 44-year-old retired from baseball in 2008 after winning a MVP award in 2000 and holding the record for most home runs for a second baseman with 377.

Kent started his career in 1992 with the Toronto Blue Jays, but would also play for the Giants, New York Mets, Cleveland Indians, Houston Astros, and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

CBS hasn't confirmed Kent's appearance on the show, but he wouldn't be the first contestant with an athletic background. Former NFL tackle Steve Wright, former quarterback Gary Hogeboom, and former NFL coach Jimmy Johnson have all appeared on the show, though none of the three won their respective seasons.

The season will take place in the Phillippines and will air on CBS in September.
