C.J. Nitkowski is still at home without a pitching job. He's helping coach several youth teams. He still works out and contemplates pitching in an independent league.
He was able to get a temporary baseball-related job. He auditioned for a role in an upcoming movie biography of Brooklyn Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey, who signed Jackie Robinson to his first major league contract. Harrison Ford will play Branch Rickey. Nitkowski will have a speaking role as a pitcher on one of the Dodgers' opponents.
He just hopes that it won't be his final time on the mound.
