Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed is regarded as one of the best athletes in the NFL and on Friday he showed off his athletic ability on the baseball diamond.

Before Friday night’s Baltimore Orioles-Tampa Bay Rays game at Camden Yards, Reed stopped by to shag some flyballs and take batting practice with the team.

Seen wearing a white No. 20 Orioles home jersey, Reed proceeded to throw a sinking fastball to Brian Matusz for the ceremonial first pitch.

As one of the NFL’s greatest ball-hawks of all-time, I’m surprised the future Hall of Famer didn’t try to run up and intercept his own pitch.
