I went to a charity softball game a few weeks ago put on by Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz to raise money for his foundation. Seems most football players have no idea how to even properly hold a bat. The few that excelled were obviously multi-sport athletes. It started with a home run contest where the most homers were hit by the smallest guy out there, the kicker Jake Elliott. Goes to show, proper technique is more important than strength.
I’d take the Blues over the Raptors in a heartbeat. I can guarantee hockey players are better all around athletes.
If you have ever seen an NBA player throw out a first pitch at a baseball game (John Wall, Draymond Green, Paul Pierce, Joakim Noah, Metta World Peace, Zach Levine, Dirk Nowitzki etc) , you have to give the edge to the Blues.
It’s so weird that these are some of the greatest athletes in the world, but they typically throw like a 8 year old kid using his off-hand. I know its not every single NBAer, but its odd how prevalent the inability to throw is. I get the possibility is they “never played baseball”, but its like these these guys never even threw a rock at tin can when they were kids. (Or for that matter, even ever learned to throw a “baseball pass” in basketball. )
