Gigantic Mega-Human JJ Watt Crushes Home Runs at Astros Batting Practice (Video)
JJ Watt crushes home runs at Astros batting practice? There’s literally nothing surprising about that. The most fearsome defender in the NFL is an incredible athlete who fires slap shots like a pro and performs 5’1″ box jumps like he’s not 6’5″ and 290 pounds. Of course he can hit a baseball 375 feet.
Of course, while it may not come as a shock that JJ Watt can crush home runs, it’s still awe inspiring. Especially when he does it with guns blazing in a tight white t-shirt like he did at Minute Maid Park on Thursday ahead of the Astros-Angels game.
Seriously, the guy posed for a photo with Mike Trout and he made the 6’2″ 235-pound AL MVP look small.

Needless to say, the ballplayers were pretty impressed with JJ’s athleticism.
“I think he has a lot of talent for not being a baseball player,” said ‘Stros shortstop Carlos Correa. “He’s an athlete and it comes naturally. He’s able to swing a bat, he has hand-eye coordination and he was able to hit some balls out of the ballpark. It was fun to watch.”
It was also a little terrifying.
“That’s why I play baseball,” explained rookie pitcher Lance McCullers when asked what it must be like to line up across from Watt on the gridiron. “I don’t have worry about it.”
