J.J. Watt crushed some home runs at Astros batting practice, then met Mike Trout.
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 MLB.com'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.
I watched JJ Watt hit at least seven balls into the Crawford Boxes. He is incredibly strong— Chandler Rome (@Chandler_Rome) July 30, 2015
