In 2012, former Royals outfielder Johnny Damon hit .222 with the Cleveland Indians.

Over his final eight games, Damon went three for 23 (.130), and that seemed like the lowpoint of his career.

It wasn’t. That came this week when it was announced that Damon will take part in next season of “Celebrity Apprentice,” Donald Trump’s show that displays his abrasiveness.

Other “celebrities” that will take part in the season include former NFL receiver Terrell Owens, Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, actress Keshia Knight Pulliam (“The Cosby Show”), musician Kevin Jonas, and “Sharknado” “star” Ian Ziering.

Those are the better contestants. Geraldo Rivera, Leeza Gibbons, Kate Gosselin and Gilbert Gottfried also will be in the show.

Damon made his debut with the Royals in 1995 and later won the World Series with the Red Sox (2004) and Yankees (2009).
