A former Bronx bomber squared off in opposition to a child bomber on Tuesday.

Alex Rodriguez appeared on “The Tonight Present Starring Jimmy Fallon” Tuesday the place he bought right into a soft-toss hitting contest with Asher Willig, a 22-month-old baseball prodigy.

Whereas it appeared as if the matchup of a participant who as soon as juiced and one other who has in all probability solely drank fruit juice may seem a bit of one-sided, Fallon made certain to even out the competition. A-Rod needed to bat lefty and in addition use the identical tiny bat that Willig used.

The 46-year-old was in a position to smack eight hits in 30 seconds, but it surely wasn’t sufficient to win.

Willig stepped as much as the plate and was in a position to knock by 9 hits to defeat the previous Yankee.

Rodriguez celebrated Willig’s win and even went to proclaim him a “future Yankee.”

Willig beforehand went viral for his early superior hand-eye coordination, which has allowed him to showcase his hitting energy at such a younger age.

The toddler is the son of former Minor Leaguer Cory Willig, whoregularly shares movies of his son, typically highlighting the shocking hitting energy of the boy who isn’t even two-years-old.
