MLB fans gained a new appreciation for how good baseball players are after watching Jake Paul hitting practice with the Miami Marlins. Jake Paul is a social media influencer and YouTuber and has a 5-0 record in boxing. He may not have fought professional boxers, but the 5-0 record still stands.
Fox Sports released a clip of Paul trying to do batting practice before the game between the Miami Marlins and the San Diego Padres.
Not only did Jake Paul not touch a pitch, he looked very uncomfortable in the batters box. This did not go unnoticed by MLB fans.
Few things are harder in pro sports than hitting a baseball from an MLB pitcher. While we’ve seen other non-baseball players like Donovan Mitchell do well in batting practice, that doesn’t make it easy. None of this stopped fans from letting Paul hear about how much better he could have done.
It is surprising that Paul was not better prepared for this experience. Or maybe it was just an unfortunate burglary.
He’s 5-0 squared, but he didn’t even come close to that record in the batters box.
With the New York Yankees currently struggling with offensive struggles, some fans believe Paul could be a good fit.
This swing reminds many fans of NBA legend Charles Barkley on the golf course. For those who don’t know, being compared to Barkley’s golf swing doesn’t do well.
This fun moment before the Marlins game reminded fans that baseball isn’t as easy as most people think.
Jake Paul should probably stick with one of the many career paths he’s already been successful in.
The batting workout went viral for all the wrong reasons, but it shows how difficult it is to hit consistently.
Jake Paul’s disastrous batting practice is a reminder of just how talented MLB players are
Pitches in batting practice are designed to be hit. They are thrown at a much slower speed and are almost always punches. Paul, who is a talented athlete, couldn’t even get in touch.
Almost anyone who isn’t an MLB player would be completely useless against an MLB pitcher. It wouldn’t be as tight as Paul in this batting practice. It showcases the blend of talent and determination that professional athletes have at the top of their game.
