Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt took batting practice at the Astros’ Minute Maid Park.

Being the star athlete in a city has its perks, just ask Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt. He got to swing by Minute Maid Park, home of the surprisingly successful Houston Astros this season, and get in a little batting practice.

This is something the average fan would never get to do.

And Watt was good at it, jacking a home run in a big league park.

And then he made BFFs with Los Angels Angels star Mike Trout, and got him to throw him a pitch even.

And we are all reminded once again what a massive human being Watt is. Trout is a big guy, and next to Watt he looks considerably smaller.
