On Oprah After the Show, confessed his wildest dream—to practice with a Major League baseball team.
On the day of his big surprise, James believes that he's rehearsing his role as grand marshal for a parade. "I had never been in a parade before," James explains, "I thought that they wanted to make sure I don't do something stupid." When the Wildest Dreams Bus pulls up, James still doesn't realize that he's been set up. With the crowd cheering, he asks, "Is Oprah here? Are they yelling at me or do they think Oprah's here? Don't tell me it's somebody's wildest dream to meet the grand marshal."
