Sorry basketball, Lebron is coming to the MLB.

CLEVELAND -- A minor league baseball team is taking a swing at signing LeBron James.

The Lake Erie Crushers plan to offer James a maximum contract under Frontier League rules on "Keep LBJ in the C-L-E Night" next week. The team said the contract is worth $1,600 a month and will include a host family so the NBA superstar won't have the "stress of a potential commute" from Akron. Also available will be a luxury suite.

The Crushers will wear Cavaliers-themed jerseys June 30 and each player will wear No. 6 to honor James' switch from No. 23. The team is renaming its park LeBron James Field at All Pro Freight Stadium for the game. Anyone named LeBron gets free tickets.

James becomes a free agent the next day.

That's actually pretty cool.

I wonder if anyone named Lebron(other than the King) is going to show up.

and a new Challenger approaching.... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCi4mIdU54c)

Going to be a tough off-season for Lebron. The Knicks, the Bulls, the Nets, the Cavs and a few more are all in his mind and now he was to add the Crushers to that list.
