Zac at the Dodgers/Yankees game  
From DuranLA:

And why yes, I did get into a twitter skirmish with that ESPN writer.

I hate false information... hate it, hate it, hate it. Like more than most things in the world.

Especially when it is given by people who have been entrusted as journalists to be as accurate and honest as possible. Whatever happened to a) being smart and observant while b) having journalistic integrity?

I mean obviously ESPN is no Wall Street Journal or NY Times, but even they have their problems nowadays.

And like, no offense to her, but she must have been effing blind to think he's 5'5. Like come on. Arguing between 5'7 through 5'9 is more understandable, our physical perspective is hard to overcome as we judge someone else's height.

But knowing that some of you have met him (at least 7 of you that I can think of) and, better yet, have been pictured with him and he is clearly taller than you (even taking into account for shoe heels, etc) and most of you agree he is 5'8-9, like idk, I trust you (and the pictures) more than I trust mass media anymore, especially twats who twitter to get attention and build their relevance.

But, on its own (as opposed to a matter of recorded fact) does height even matter? To quote Matt on twitter: "Height does not a man make! I'd rather have a 5'3" man that is a decent human being, than a 6'6" asshole showing off his machismo."

And I totally agree.

Zac's a cool, kind dude. Whatever height, lol. And even however hot.

I pity anyone who can't see past their assessments of how tall he is (or isn't) or even how hot he is to see that... his heart... the best part of him.

/rant, sorry the cheese came out at the end, lol...

We know he always liked baseball from his older interviews but the timing looks very promotion~y... not that there is something wrong with it; not at all.

What I don't get - did all this stuff on Twitter and this pic happen before the game or after? It's not really important but I'm wondering.

Oh yeah, and that "journalist" is an idiot.

All this VIP schmoozing takes place on the field before the game during batting practices.

Though I don't know how showing up at a ballgame between the Yankees/Dodgers today would have to do anything with Charlie promo - he didn't throw out first pitch, there's no ties with Universal, etc.

Thanks. :)

I have no clue about baseball, so it's sort of surprising that it's before the game. I would have thought something like that happens after.

It's certainly not "active" promo but I suspect he might get (or hope for) some media mention/pics etc out of it and considering that baseball is a theme in his movie they might tie whatever gets written into it. It's not going to be a big deal but I don't think it hurts. Plus, should he do some real baseball related promo later, it might not come totally out of the left fields if he gets seen at a game earlier. idk
