>>THAT’S WHY WE’RE HERE. JAMES: HOW EMBARRASSING WOULD IT
BE TO NOT CON TPWHECT THE BALL AT ALL.
>>I DON’T THINK THERE’S ANY EXPECTATIONS THAT YOU WILL
CONNECT. JAMES: TALK TO ME ABOUT
SPITTING. IT’S IMPORTANT TO SPIT A LOT,
RIGHT? CROTCH GRAB. I HAVE TO ADJUST MY OWN CROTCH
BECAUSE ON THE SHOW I HAVE SOMEONE DO THAT FOR ME.
HOW SHOULD I APPROACH THE PLATE? SHOULD I COME IN WITH PIZZAZZ OR
COME IN LIKE I MEAN BUSINESS.>>I LIKE THE SPITTING.
JAMES: IS THE BUTT WAY OUT. IF YOU HIT A HOME RUN YOU WANT A
BAT FLIP.>>WATCH IT FOR A SECOND.
AND NOW GO. JAMES: BAM, LOOK AT THE PITCHER. STEP OFF INTO A SURROUND OF
HIGH-FIVES AND BUM PATS. YOU DO A LOT OF THE BUM PATS?
I’M INTO THE BUM PATS. STICK ONE ON ME. MAKE IT COUNT. AT SOME POINT TODAY THERE’S
GOING TO BE A MOMENT WHERE YOU’LL TELL ME THERE’S NO CRYING
IN BASEBALL. THAT’S WHAT I IMAGINE IS GOING
TO HAPPEN.>>I’M GOING TO BE THROWING FROM
THE PITCHER’S MOUND FROM 60 FEET.
YOUR GOAL IS TO STEP ON THE PLATE. RIGHT. THAT LOOKS A BIT FAST.>>I WON’T HIT YOU.
JAMES: RIGHT. I SHOULD BE LIKE IN A FULL BODY
SUIT, YOU KNOW? HAVE I ANNOYED YOU OR SOMETHING?>>YES.
JAMES: WAIT THERE. NOW I’M READY. DOUBLED UP.
YOU’RE NOT GETTING NEAR THE PRIZE. HERE WE GO.
HANG ON. HANG ON. AH.
OH. TERRIBLE.
>>THAT’S IT. [APPLAUSE]
>>I CAN’T FEEL MY HAND THOUGH. WHY DON’T YOU PLAY WITH A SOFTER
BALL? [LAUGHTER]
WHOO! IN TERMS OF CELEBRATIONS IF I
KNOCK IT RIGHT OUT OF THE PARK WHICH WE’RE ALL EXPECTING THAT I
MIGHT.>>TAKE THREE STEPS, FLIP THE
BAT IN THE AIR AND TAKE YOUR TIME.
JAMES: WOULD IT BE FROWNED UPON IF I CALL AN UBER TO GO AROUND
THE BASES. HOW SHOULD I APPROACH THE CROWD?>>DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE PEOPLE
CHEERING AND BOOING YOU AND WHATNOT.>>FOCUS, FOCUS, LOOK AT THE
BASEBALL. JAMES: SORRYINGS I SWITCHED OFF
— SORRY, I SWITCHED OFF. WHAT WAS THAT WORD YOU SAID? SORRY. AH! JAMES: I’M IN THE BATTING CAGE
IN THE DUGOUT JUST DOING SOME WARMING UP.
I LOOK LIKE THAT PICTURE OF CHRIS CHRISTIE WHEN HE LAYED IN
A CELEBRITY BENEFIT. THAT’S WHAT I LOOK LIKE. LET’S JUST HOPE FOR THE BEST.
WELL, I’VE BEEN CALLED OUT. HERE WE GO.
[APPLAUSE] [LAUGHTER]
HERE WE GO. SORRY, DO YOU KNOW WHERE THE
FIELD IS? KEEP GOING THIS WAY. OK.

  1. would luv to see him infront of a cricket bowler where ball is much harder and travelling at 99-100mph and hav to stand infront of pens and not 100cm away.

  2. James ya wanker! You should have gotten their batting coach to at least show you how to setup at the plate. Great video!
    😂😂😂

  3. You see I attended this game and I just now learned it was James Corden and at the time I thought it was a grown man from Make A Wish.

  4. Come to think of it, I don't ever recall there being a European baseball player? There have been lots of Latin American players and Asian players, but no European.

  5. For someone who has never played baseball, EVER, the fact that he actually was able to hit the ball at all is amazing!!!!

  6. Dude I'm not trying to be mean but you are very week and out of shape. .. before you die from heartattak do something

  7. Put your back elbow up, and stop resting the damn bat on your shoulder and you wont be swinging down on the ball and hurting your hand… I obvs know he was trying to be as baseball stupid as possible but when he asked the pitching coach if he was annoyed by him and he said yes I was hoping he was going to hit him lol I wished he woulda hit him

  8. I’m ngl his swing wasn’t the prettiest thing in the world but his feet were perfect through his swing if he just leaned back a bit

  9. Just find myself disappointed, a role model for an up-and-coming generation, probably best I don't comment any more

  10. Haha guys do you get it he took a swing like you swing a baseball bat but taking a swing is a phrase that means trying something out lol James cordon really has me dead with this one 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  11. To those that are saying "there aren't 50,000 people there" should realize that this is probably happening during batting practice right?

  12. Wow it's like he was playing the blind and he still would have been out didn't touch first didn't touch second and then just walked off 3rd what a shame.
    .

  13. He argues with the umpire that he got a piece of the first 2 pitches… which would have made them strikes anyway
