NBA veteran Dirk Nowitzki participated in the Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game over the weekend. Obviously Dirk is of course known for his basketball ability, but he doesn't appear to be a bad softball player.
Dirk declined to swing at the first two pitches, but he ripped the third pitch into left field. Up until that point, Dirk looked like a natural. However, it was when he took off for first base that the NBA's sixth all time leading scorer embarrassed himself.

In all seriousness, props to Dirk for participating in an event that supports the Special Olympics. With that said, Ezekiel Elliott is right.
