“To call these ‘swings’ is to be generous” “Oh yeah it turned red, that’s the real shame”

MLB fans gained a new appreciation for the quality of baseball players after watching Jake Paul practice batting with the Miami Marlins. Jake Paul is a social media influencer and YouTuber, as well as having a 5-0 boxing record. He may not have fought professional boxers, but the 5-0 record still stands.

Fox Sports released a clip of Paul’s batting practice attempt before the game between the Miami Marlins and San Diego Padres.

Not only did Jake Paul fail to make contact with any pitches, but he looked very uncomfortable in the batting box. This has not gone unnoticed by MLB fans.

Few things are more difficult in professional sports than hitting a baseball from an MLB pitcher. While we’ve seen other non-baseball players like Donovan Mitchell succeed in batting practice, that doesn’t make it any easier. All of this hasn’t stopped fans from letting Paul hear how much better he could have done.

@JomboyMedia I don’t think I’ve seen a man’s swing worse than this

It is surprising that Paul was not more prepared for this experience. Perhaps, however, it was just an unlucky fit.

@JomboyMedia Man looks like he never swing a bat in his life lol

He may be 5-0 in the squared circle, but he hasn’t even come close to that record in the batting box.

With the New York Yankees currently struggling offensively, some fans believe Paul might be able to fit in perfectly.

This swing reminds many fans of NBA legend Charles Barkley on the golf course. For those unaware, being compared to Barkley’s golf swing is unfavorable.

This fun moment before the Marlins game reminded fans that baseball isn’t as easy as most people think.

Jake Paul should probably stick with one of the many career paths he’s already been successful in.

@JomboyMedia For starters it looks like this guy has never played baseball ⚾️ in his life just on how his batting stance and batting grip cause obviously his swings are terrible 🤦🏿‍♂️

Batting practice has gone viral for all the wrong reasons, but it just goes to show how hard it is to land hits consistently.

Jake Paul’s disastrous batting practice is a reminder of just how talented MLB players are

Paul is a great athlete, but hasn't watched him at batting practice

Pitches in batting practice are designed to be hit. They are thrown with much less velocity and are almost always strikes. Paul, who is a talented athlete, couldn’t even make contact.

Almost anyone who isn’t an MLB player would be completely ineffective against an MLB pitcher. It wouldn’t be as close as Paul was in that batting practice. It shows the mix of talent and determination that professional athletes possess at the top of their game.
