Gotta love this: J.J. Watt stepping into the batter's box during BP at Minute Maid Park on Friday afternoon. And while he started slow, he ended up belting five into the cheap seats, including three in a row. Watt played a little baseball in high school, but the 6'5", 295-pound defensive end hadn't swung a bat much since then. Didn't matter, though, as he put on a show for the fans.

In an unrelated note, Watt is now officially the best current Astro on the Houston roster.
