Boston Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester is no gamer. Why then is he the centerpiece for Hardball Ace, a 3D iPhone and Android game by Face the Ace? Aside from being an All-Star pitcher--a perfect fit to challenge seasoned touch gamers and baseball fans on the go--Lester wanted to have fun. "[Face the Ace are] just good guys that are interested in making a good product," Lester told us. "And I thought it would be fun. That was the main thing: Just have a good time with it, do something different." Sure, he admittedly had a much better time working on Hardball Ace than your average 30-second commercial, but that's not to say it didn't take some effort.
