Tom Brady’s Random Batting Practice Draws Reaction From Mike Trout

What if TB12 stuck to baseball?


Apparently, dominating on the gridiron and signing a record-setting broadcast deal with FOX aren’t enough for Tom Brady. Now, he’s eyeing a career on the diamond.

OK, maybe that’s a stretch. But Brady, once drafted by the Montreal Expos, took to the baseball field Tuesday for a round of batting practice.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback shared a video of the BP session, which also showed his trainer, Alex Guerrero, and featured longtime teammate Rob Gronkowski shagging fly balls.

“Got some cuts in this morning,” Brady tweeted. “Wonder if that Expos offer is still on the table… “

The social media post even drew a reaction from Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout, who responded to Brady’s tweet with the eyeballs emoji.

Brady was a standout catcher in high school, prompting the Expos to select him in the 18th round (507th overall) of the 1995 Major League Baseball Draft. But Brady instead chose football over baseball and attended the University of Michigan, after which the New England Patriots picked him in the sixth round (199th overall) of the 2000 NFL Draft.

It’s safe to say everything worked out for Brady, who since has won seven Super Bowl titles — six with New England and one with Tampa Bay — en route to being considered the greatest quarterback in league history. He’s still thriving ahead of his age-45 season and has agreed to become FOX Sports’ lead NFL analyst whenever he retires, reportedly landing a 10-year, $375 million contract with the network.

Still, it’s fun to think about what would’ve happened had Brady stuck with baseball. And it’s also interesting to see Gronk roaming the outfield, as it remains unclear whether he’ll return to the Buccaneers for the 2022 NFL season.
