Baltimore will certainly have something to root for on the upcoming season of "Dancing with the Stars."

We'd already heard Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones -- known for a little end zone shuffle -- will be strutting his stuff, partnering with Karina Smirnoff.

And joining him will be a woman who should have a serious edge -- Olympic skating champion Dorothy Hamill, who lives in Baltimore.

Hamill will be dancing with Tristan MacManus.

The Baltimore kids will be joining a cast including Wynonna Judd, Kellie Pickler and Aly Raisman.

Historically, athletes tend to do pretty well on "DWTS." Particularly football players and skaters. Hines Ward took the whole thing; Kristi Yamaguchi and Apolo Anton Ohno won their seasons, too.

The show starts March 18.
