If Buffalo Bills star quarterback Josh Allen wants to retire from football early (for whatever reason), there’s always the opportunity to pursue Major League Baseball.
Buffalo’s franchise player attended the Toronto Blue Jays’ batting practice at the Rogers Centre on Monday, prior to the team’s home game against the New York Yankees. And per the Blue Jays’ official Twitter account, the soon-to-be 27-year-old hit four homers during the session.
Fans on social media were obviously quite impressed with Allen’s showing at the Rogers Centre. Here are some of the best reactions to his dominance in the batter’s box.
Suffice to say, the Blue Jays could have used Allen’s powerful bat during Monday’s home loss to the Yankees. Toronto fell behind 7-0 to the reigning AL East champions but scored four runs in the eighth to get back in the game. Ultimately, it wasn’t enough as they fell 7-4.
Allen was a standout baseball and basketball player in high school. He went to Reedley College in Reedley, California for his first year of post-secondary schooling before making the transfer to Wyoming. The rest, as they say, is history.
Allen was one of the most prolific quarterbacks in the nation during his time at Wyoming, leading to the Bills moving up so they could select him seventh overall in the 2018 NFL Draft.
The Bills are coming off a fourth straight playoff appearance and a third consecutive AFC East-division winning season. They enter the 2023 season as one of the main favorites to win Super Bowl 58.
