Calvin 'Megatron' Johnson hits home run at Tigers batting practice (Video)

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, aka Megatron, was a guest at Tigers batting practice before Friday's game and was given a chance to take a few swings at the plate. Johnson made the most of his opportunity to impress the full-time baseball players by hitting a home run to left field.

Looks like Megatron has something to fall back on if this football thing doesn't work out. Considering Johnson is this year's Madden 13 cover athlete and there's that little curse to deal with, that may not be a bad thing.

Johnson threw out the first pitch before Friday night's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
