Stephen Strasburg to appear on Letterman

Jun 9, 2010, 9:35 PM EDT

The accolades continue to pour in for Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg, who debuted on Tuesday night in Washington, D.C. with a 14-strikeout victory over the Pirates.

According to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post, the Baseball Hall of Fame called the Nationals’ front office on Wednesday morning to request a souvenir from the 21-year-old’s debut.  But there’s more.

Strasburg, who netted a season-high 7.1 overnight television rating for MASN, is going to be plastered across the nation’s televisions again — no pitching rubber required.  He will appear on the Late Show with David Letterman on Thursday to read the program’s nightly “Top Ten” list.  Letterman’s other guests for the night include Harry Connick Jr., Will Smith’s son and musical act Peter Wolf.

    I won’t say all this hype is getting a bit thick, but for a minute there Strasburg looked like he was beginning to moonwalk.

    The moon walk happens after he gets off the water!
