Travis Kelce makes some positive baseball memories after all
By Matt Conner
Travis Kelce needed Aaron Judge’s help, but he got things turned around on the baseball diamond this week.
Just when it looked like the entire world was Travis Kelce‘s for the taking, the Cleveland Guardians got in the way.
Remember, Kelce is from northern Ohio and has stayed very connected and involved in the Cleveland area even as he’s remained committed and supportive of so much in the Kansas City area as well. It’s not uncommon to see him enjoying himself in the area or supporting a local cause.
The latest venture, however, didn’t go so well. It was only a few days ago that Kelce joined the rest of us in an awkward laugh when attempting to throw out the first pitch of a game with his mother, Donna Kelce, for the Cleveland Guardians. Instead of tossing a normal lazy throw to the catcher from the pitcher’s mound, things went south—very quickly, as in straight to the ground as the ball came out of his hand.
Check out the reel for yourself if you need a refresher.
In the end, Kelce was a great sport and showed the ability to laugh at himself, but even so, it was nice to see him turn things around on the diamond on Wednesday when some further footage leaked of Kelce trying his hand in the batter’s box instead of on the pitcher’s mound.
In the following footage, New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge was hanging with Kelce before the game and seemed to show the Chiefs tight end a thing or two about his approach. Whatever was happening here, it worked, because Kelce ended up hitting a nice shot over the fence—documenting his good fortunes on the diamond.
In a year where Kelce has set personal records, won another Super Bowl, ruled late night television, and launched his own music festival, it was nice to know he was human like the rest of us for at least a minute. But now he can get back to dominating everything.
