The Giants wide receiver showed off his diamond ability again Friday when he took batting practice with the Tampa Bay Rays. Rocking a Blake Snell throwback Devil Rays jersey, he rocked a pair of pitches over the wall at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.
In June of 2010, Panthers receiver Steve Smith broke his arm playing football … flag football, at a local YMCA.
“They were messing around, the ball went over his head and he slipped,” Smith’s agent, Derrick Fox, told ESPN. “He put his arm out to brace himself. When he did he felt a sharp pain. He went in (Sunday) afternoon to have an X-ray and it showed a break.”
Smith had surgery to have a small plate and screws inserted in his arm, but he returned to full health in time for the regular season.
