Calvin Johnson Can Hit Home Runs Too

By / 05.19.12

The Madden cover boy apparently knows his way around a diamond.

Johnson played baseball in high school, and said he had some contact with at least one major league team before going to Georgia Tech to play football.

“I know I had some history with the Cincinnati Reds, but I don't know if they drafted me or if they just contacted me about a tryout,” said Johnson, who also threw out the first pitch before Friday's Tigers-Pirates game. “By that point, though, football had pretty much taken over my life.”

Hmm. Seems like you’d know if you’d been drafted by a major league team, but as a rule, I never argue with 6-foot-6, 235-pound athletic freaks.
