The Tampa Bay Rays may have the best record in major league baseball, but that doesn’t keep outfielder B.J. Upton from focusing on other sports.

People all over the planet are obsessing with the World Cup, arguably the biggest sporting event in the world, including Upton. Judging from the video below, which is an advertisement for Adidas,  it’s safe to say he’s caught World Cup fever.

Don’t let Upton’s skill with his hands and arms fool you, he’s also very capable with his feet when it comes to soccer. The speed demon combines both baseball and soccer for the best of both worlds during batting practice. Whoever thought of softball-sized soccer balls is a genius.

B.J.’s brother, Justin, plays for the Arizona Diamondbacks. I certainly wouldn’t mind a little sibling rivalry action on the soccer field in the near future.
