Johnny Manziel wins Joe Haden celebrity home run derby
Sunday June 7th, 2015

Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel won the home run derby at the celebrity softball game put on Saturday by his teammate, cornerback Joe Haden, reports Northeast Ohio Media Group.

After signing autographs at the Browns Fan Fest—including a baby—earlier in the day, Manziel attended the Joe Haden and Friends charity event in Eastlake, Ohio.

Manziel, who had a run-in with a fan at the Byron Nelson Classic PGA tournament in Irving, Texas, last weekend, did not speak with reporters on Saturday. He has not spoken to media since the Browns began their organized team activities.

Other NFL players Manziel beat out in the home run derby included Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor and cornerback Richard Sherman.

During the softball game, Manziel also hit a home run estimated at 360 feet.

Manziel played baseball in high school before giving the sport up to focus on football. The San Diego Padres drafted him as a shortstop in the 28th round of the 2014 MLB draft.
