Brazilian striker Neymar took in a Mets game this week and showed why he should probably stick to soccer.
Neymar, who is also a star for FC Barcelona, was shown swinging a bat in the Mets’ batting cage on Tuesday with an unorthodox technique.
“Very difficult for me,” he told The Wall Street Journal after struggling to make contact. He reportedly said he was just starting to "get to know" the sport.
Another clip showed Neymar juggling a baseball with more success.
The New York visit comes as Neymar is teaming up with Michael Jordan to become the first soccer player with a boot endorsed by the basketball great.
Neymar will wear a shoe inspired by the "Jordan V" shoe, carrying Jordan's No. 23 on one foot and his own No. 10 on the other.
The shoe will sport the "Jumpman" logo, as well as the Brazilian flag and the initials of Neymar's son, Davi Lucca.
Nike says the Jordan brand will also release a street edition with "Neymar" stitched inside the tongue.
Neymar will not play in the Copa America Centenario, which starts Friday, instead playing for the home country at the Rio Olympics.
