Michael Phelps was at camp with his hometown Baltimore Orioles today, taking some batting practice. Judging by the video of his batting practice, he is a really good swimmer.
“It’s been a long time since I swung a bat,” Phelps said before walking into the cage.
A few minutes before he starting swinging, manager Buck Showalter came over to greet him and clearly had no sympathy for Phelps.
“I haven’t been in a pool for 30 years, but I’m not drowning,” Showalter joked.
