From a link provided by Pro Football Talk, it looks like Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson is more than just an amazing football player. 'Megatron' played high school baseball and exhibited his hitting skills when he took batting practice before yesterday's Detroit Tigers game. Johnson took a few swings, spraying the ball all over the field looking comfortable at the plate, then launched a shot over the left field wall.
The guy might end up a Tiger good-luck charm, as Tiger pitcher Justin Verlander went out and threw a one-hitter in the team's 6-0 victory.
