David Freese is making his way back to the St. Louis scene —the pizza scene, that is.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch wrote that the “World Series legend” is once again a spokesman for Imo’s Pizza.
“I grew up eating Imo’s. I still remember the Wildwood location’s phone number by heart,” Freese told the Post-Dispatch.
Freese, 33, was the pizza chain’s spokesperson in 2013 and 2014, the Post-Dispatch reported. However, when Freese was sent to the Los Angeles Angels, that pact lapsed.
Never miss a local story.
“He knows and loves our brand. Our customers love him,” company president Carl Imo told the Post-Dispatch.
Freese signed a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates in March 2016 and played so well, he earned an extension that will pay him $10.5 million through 2018. He has a $6 million club option for 2019 that comes with a $500,000 buyout.
