Johnny Baseball?

Johnny Manziel's latest stop before the NFL Draft was Boston Red Sox training camp in Fort Myers, Fla. on Saturday where he sported a jersey of the defending World Series Champions.

He was in town for the teams's annual casino charity event on Friday night — the event benefits the Red Sox Foundation.

Manziel is represented by LRMR, the same company that represents LeBron James and has a marketing deal with Fenway Sports Management.

So he stayed in Ft. Myers after the charity event and visited the club's spring training camp on Saturday morning, posing for pictures with a number of players and staff.

Manziel is no stranger to the baseball diamond.

He threw out the first pitch at a Texas Rangers game last April.

Manziel also re-enacted his infamous touchdown pass against Alabama his freshman season at a San Diego Padres' game last summer.

And took batting practice.
