James van Riemsdyk Hits a Home Run

James van Riemsdyk of the Philadelphia Flyers, fresh off signing a new six year contract extension with the team, took part in batting practice at Citizens Bank Park yesterday with a few of his teammates. Already an incredible opportunity and experience, van Riemsdyk made the most of it by smashing a home run over the left field wall during his time at the plate. It’s not every day that you get to see a hockey player hit a home run, but van Riemsdyk made it happen.

Check out the video below for the blast. With this home run, and news of Steven Stamkos playing in a baseball beer league over the summer, it makes us wonder which NHL stars would you want on your team for a baseball game?
