Football players acting like baseball studs

Posted on: June 24, 2010 6:09 pm
While doing a little advance PR work in Toronto for when the Bills play at the Rogers Centre in a preseason game vs. the Colts on Aug. 19 and in a Week 9 showdown against the Bears on Nov. 7, Buffalo NT Kyle Williams, WR Lee Evans and S Jairus Byrd showed off their skills during batting practice before a recent Blue Jays game.

It’s always fun to watch athletes take part in other sports to show just how athletic they really are. Byrd, Evans and Williams – at least from this video shown on the Buffalo Bills official site – appear to be really good athletes.

Evans and Byrd appeared to smash quite a few balls, but none topped Williams. Though before he stepped into the cage, he asked if he could use an aluminum bat and then requested that the BP pitcher throw underhand to him, he smashed at least three home runs.

As a reward for winning the home run derby, Williams threw out the first pitch of the Blue Jays game that night. As expected, the offering appeared to be a perfect strike.
