(MIAMI, FLA) — Swing and a miss…
YouTube star slash professional boxer Jake Paul threw out the first pitch at the Marlins-Padres game on Tuesday just fine, and then he tried his hand at batting practice.
A now-viral video shows Paul strike out in the cage at LoanDepot Park in Miami, not once, but over and over…flat-footed flailing.
Paul, who is 25, took to Twitter after the video went viral to say that it was edited and that he actually hit a home run.
“Alright so the video of me missing all of the swings is edited guys,” said Paul in a separate video shared to his verified Twitter account. “I hit a home run but the cameras weren’t rolling for that part. I hit it a couple of times. I’m better than that.”
Paul wore a custom Marlins jersey with 5-0 on the back, which is his fight record.
The boxer received the VIP treatment in Miami while promoting Betr — a new sports betting and media platform he founded.
