Calvin Johnson Hits A Home Run During Detroit Tigers Batting Practice [VIDEO]

Calvin Johnson is known for going deep for the Detroit Lions in the NFL as the best wide receiver in the league. Now he has gone deep in another sport.

The star wide receiver took a few swings at Comerica Park on Friday night before the Tigers hosted the Pittsburgh Pirates, and Johnson even hit one ball over the fence in left field. Johnson, who played baseball in high school, also threw out a ceremonial first pitch before the game.

Johnson said if he had tried to play another sport professionally other than football, it would have been baseball. He says he’s a Tigers fan and tries to get to the ballpark when he can.
