With spring in bloom, there's no doubt it's wiffle ball season, and Raiders quarterback Derek Carr got into the spirit Sunday by tweeting videos of himself tossing some pitches. 

 

The Athletics responded by inviting him to pitch some batting practice. 

 

In response, Carr tweeted he would "love to at some point."
