While it may have been more fun to see Mark Teixeira try to play cricket, we’ll settle for seeing Prince Harry play baseball. The British royal was in New York on Tuesday as part of his trip around the United States, and he capped off a day that included a stop on the Jersey shore and a ride on a double-decker bus through Manhattan with a little modern rounders action. Harry and Teixeira, who has been out of pinstripes for the Yankees this season after landing himself on the disabled list with a wrist injury from hitting off a tee, got their hacks in at the Harlem RBI field. It’s not the first sporting event Harry has attended on his visit — he checked out some American football and cheerleading the other day. Harry didn’t seem to have trouble adjusting to America’s game of bats and balls. “Great swing,” Teixeira said, according to USA Today. “Three for three. For a guy who’s never played baseball before, to hit three line drives in a row, that’s pretty impressive.” Also impressive — and something Teixeira didn’t include in that quote — was that Harry’s third poke was a home run (or, as The Telegraph notes, “The Prince, 28, managed to hit a home run with only the third delivery pitched at him”). Now, if only Harry could teach Teixeira how to hit off a tee. Click here for photos of Prince Harry playing baseball >>
