Calvin Johnson is simply just an amazing athlete. In high school, along with being a great football player, "Megatron" also had some pretty solid skills on the baseball field as well.

According to Yahoo!, he almost had a tryout with the Cincinnati Reds.

Johnson decided to take his talents to Comerica Park, taking part in the Detroit Tigers' batting practice. He had a few good hits before he launched a home run, showing he can hit.

Johnson currently graces the cover of the next Madden video game for 2013. With the so-called "Curse," Megatron surely looks like he can beat it with his success so far.
