Is NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving the next two-sport athlete? (Video)

Kyrie Irving is best known for his moves on the hardwood.
Among other things, the two-time All-Star point guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers has one of the sickest crossover moves in the NBA.
But Irving's skills go far beyond breaking ankles -- and not just on the court, but on the baseball diamond.
Apparently Kyrie has some pretty impressive baseball skills that no one's really ever seen before, that is, until he visited Progressive Field Monday night.
Irving was on-hand to toss out the ceremonial first pitch before the Indians-Angels game and made quite an impression as he played catch on the field and hit a few line drives as he took some swings in the cage during batting practice.
You might think that it's typical for such an exceptional athlete to make hitting a baseball look easy. But it's not. Just ask LeBron James, who never even made contact during his BP session back when he visited Progressive Field as a Cavs rookie. As Indians radio broadcaster Tom Hamilton put it, "Kyrie Irving looked like Mike Trout out there in the cage. LeBron James looked like, well, just a trout."
So could Kyrie Irving be the next two-sport athlete? You know what they say, only in Cleveland.
