Watch NFL Rushing King Ezekiel Elliott Sock Some Dingers For Charity

Homers, Interesting

On any given Sunday in the fall, Ezekiel Elliott powers through defenders with a punishing running style that combines power and speed. On Monday, the Dallas Cowboys running back showed off some bat speed and raw power as he and some of his teammates played some charity baseball.

Check out the NFL’s rushing leader put some swings on some pitches during the Cowboys’ annual Reliant Home Run Derby charity competition:


OK, so Elliott could use some work on his form and technique, but it’s not like we’re working with nothing here. Good power is hard to find these days, and judging by the money he raised with a few swings, he’s got the clutch gene going for him too.

So not only was this for a good cause, it clearly inspired some of Elliott’s teammates, including star receiver Dez Bryant and quarterback Dak Prescott.

Even coach Jason Garrett got in on the fun:

And check out this double-play combination with Garrett and Elliott up the middle, with Prescott handling things over at first. It’s not pretty, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s fun for charity, after all.
