Alex Rodriguez stopped by The Tonight Show Tuesday. So, Jimmy Fallon thought it'd be fun to pit the former New York Yankee against his greatest competition yet. A one-year-old.
To be fair, Asher Willig is a hitting prodigy, who recently went viral in a batting cage video posted on his dad's Instagram. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bdk1z7XhAu2/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=embed_legacy
Still, the greatest hitter of all time had a bit of an advantage. Or so we thought.
With 30 seconds on the clock, Rodriguez missed a couple of hits right off the bat, even stating, "That's why I'm doing TV now, fellas." The baseball star did manage to get his swing back though, eventually sending the balls straight for the live audience members. "Getting pelted by A-Rod," exclaimed Fallon. "This is fantastic!" At the end of Rodriguez's timer, he scored eight hits, which, surprisingly, was not enough to beat one-year-old Asher. The little baseball prod got everyone excited when he made nine hits in 30 seconds, which ended up inspiring Rodriguez to pitch an idea for what Asher should pursue in the future. "Future Yankee! He's a future Yankee!"
