Buchholz acts, and a Phillies fan redeems herself

Mar 12, 2010, 1:13 AM EDT

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz showed off his acting chops on Wednesday with a cameo on Comedy Central’s Tosh.o show.

He played, shockingly, a pitcher, and did not have any lines. Even he admitted it was a pretty easy gig.

“It was fun,” Buchholz said. “It wasn’t like I had to do much acting, I just had to throw a few pitches.”

In fact, Buchholz was upstaged quite nicely by a 3-year-old girl. The girl in question became an Internet sensation last season when, while attending a Phillies game with her father, she took a foul ball that had been snared by her dad and promptly threw it back onto the field.

Her second 15 minutes of fame came on Wednesday when Daniel Tosh, a comedian and the host of Tosh.o, gave the girl a chance at redemption. He taught her which items were OK to throw back onto the field (John Mayer CDs) and which should be kept (wads of cash).

Buchholz then makes his cameo, for which he will surely earn an Emmy nomination. Watch the video below.

    Now I know why I do not watch Tosh.O, 4 minutes of my life I will never have back.

    I know it’s minor, but why does it always seem like Buchholz’ mind on anything but BB?

    Based on the headline, I thought this was going to be about the *other* female Phillies fan who gained notoriety this offseason. That show is damn hilarious though.
