Watch: J.J. Watt meets Mike Trout, hits HRs at Astros batting practice

Friday July 31st, 2015

What can't J.J. Watt do? (besides the Nae Nae, that is.)

The Texans defensive end showed up at Minute Maid Park in Houston on Thursday and took some batting practice before the Astros-Angels game, absolutely crushing the ball. 

Watt made it look easy, but before Texans fans get worried he might want to become the next Bo Jackson, it seems he is firmly committed to football.

“I like hitting people better,” he told's Chandler Rome after hitting a home run.

The NFL Defensive Player of the Year also got to meet Angels outfielder Mike Trout, creating a photo filled with young talent that few duos could top.
