IMTA Alum Moises Arias to be an ESPN Reporter!

IMTA Alum Moises Arias will be covering the Little League World Series for ESPN! He will work with the announcers Brent Musburger and Orel Hershiser on at least 15 games. The coordinating producer Tom McNeeley said he saw some of Moises work on Hannah Montana and decided Moises was perfect! McNeeley says Arias, rather than explaining any intricacies of on-field play, will look for color — "like who ate the most hot dogs on a team. His personality is what will drive this. I'm not looking for him to analyze double plays."

Moises competed at IMTA in Los Angeles in 2005 with his brother Mateo. Shortly after IMTA, Moises got his break with appearances on Everybody Hates Chris and The Suite Life of Zack and Cody before landing the role of Rico on the hit show Hannah Montana! He made his feature film debut in 2006 starring in Nacho Libre opposite Jack Black. He competed at the 2008 Disney Channel Games with fellow IMTA alumni, Alyson Stoner and Kunal Sharma. He also starred in the film The Perfect Game, a baseball movie, Beethoven's Big Break and Dadnapped!
