Yesterday we taught you how to get to third base with Samantha Hoopes, but if you want to score, you've got to know how to hit. 

While we were visiting Coney Island, Samantha traded in her bikini for a baseball bat and hit the field with the Brooklyn Cyclones to learn some of the most valuable lessons in the game.

Luckily, the Cyclones not only taught our three-time SI Swimsuit model how to steal third, but also the basics of scoring. Even mascot Sandy the Seagull was on hand (and didn't mind getting up close and personal with our blonde bombshell) to help our girl master the art of knocking one out of the park!

A special thanks to the Brooklyn Cyclones for hosting Sam and the SI Swimsuit crew.

And don't forget, there's more to come! SI Swimsuit will be back on Coney Island for the first-ever Summer of Swim Music & Fan Festival on Sunday Aug. 28th. See you then!
