We've heard many stake claims that they are indeed "The Biggest Baseball Fan" on the planet.

It's become rather cliché.

Now imagine this...

What if the "Biggest Baseball Fan" actually did exist and what if Baseball's very own MLB Network found him living, breathing and walking among us?

Enter Nick Turturro...

Actor,

Father,

Friend,

But first and foremost...

Yankee fanatic!

Nick Turturro's varied acting career credits include NYPD Blue, The Longest Yard and Chuck & Larry, just to name a few. To Nick, however, those bodies of work are completely and utterly irrelevant compared to his Pinstripe Pride.

Nick Turturro breathes Baseball. He breathes the Yankees.

What you are about to see is real and quite scary.

Nick Turturro's life revolves around Yankee wins and losses.

He has taken rooting to the next level.

A level that some deem worthy of a straight-jacket.

A level worthy of two episodes of "I Breathe Baseball" only on the MLB Network.

I Breathe Baseball, featuring Nick Turturro, will include cameos from actor, director and brother John Turturro, Yankees slugger Mark Teixeira, manager Joe Girardi, pitcher Phil Coke and hitting coach Kevin Long. IBB will also feature a never before seen Stickball challenge between Nick Turturro and Yankees outfielder Johnny Damon.

MLB Network and MLB Productions present: I Breathe Baseball, featuring Nick Turturro. Airdates: Sunday Sept 27th and Sunday, Oct 4th

TEXAS RANGERS ON THIS WEEK IN BASEBALL PRESENTED BY PEPSI

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26TH, AT 3:30 PM ET ON FOX; AIRS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 27TH, AT 12:00 PM ET ON MLB NETWORK (ALWAYS CHECK LOCAL LISTINGS TO CONFIRM BROADCAST TIME)

This Week in Baseball, presented by Pepsi, travels to Texas for a behind-the-scenes look at the Rangers. TWIB goes into the clubhouse and onto the field for a day-in-the-life of Ian Kinsler to find out what it is really like on game day. Next we spend time with Nolan Ryan and learn the secret to the success of the Rangers pitching staff. This year the Rangers staff is among the tops in the league in ERA after finishing dead last in 2008 and it is all thanks to the new approach instilled by Nolan Ryan.

In "Pepsi Presents," TWIB looks at the return of fan favorite Pudge Rodriguez to Texas. Chevy's "Roberto Clemente Award" profiles the 1989 winner Gary Carter, who gave his time to and became the spokesperson for the American Leukemia Society.

Holiday Inn's "Winning Road Trips" features teams that have been strong on the road this week, while XM provides the "Call of the Week" and State Farm gives us the "Big League Blast." Gillette "Rookie of the Month" profiles a rookie who has put up big numbers this week and we close out the show with the great plays and bloopers in Taco Bell's "How 'Bout That", featuring the track "New Again" by Taking Back Sunday.

This Week in Baseball is also broadcast internationally in Australia, Canada, Europe, Japan, Latin America and Taiwan.
