Kevin Kiermaier of the Tampa Bay Rays has agreed to take on the latest Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill item: a 35-ounce smoked ribeye dinner.

If the center fielder finishes the meal, which also consists of two side salads and dessert, the restaurant franchise will donate $4,000 to the Friends of Joshua House Foundation, his charity of choice.

Fans can watch Kiermaier in action at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Smokey Bones location in Clearwater. The event will help launch the dish nationwide.
