Bubba Watson surveys Citi Field, sees a chance to hit the green

Reigning Masters Champion, Bubba Watson, was on hand Monday at Citi Field to toss out the first pitch before traveling to Connecticut for this weekend's Travelers Championship.

The golfer, who's also known for his amazing trick shots, spoke about a few he'd like to try at Citi Field.

When asked if he could hit a golf ball from home plate into the Home Run Apple in center field, Bubba said, "I don't have my clubs with me, but yeah, I could easily do it."

What else could Bubba do at Citi Field?

"I would love to try and hit one off the lights, like in The Natural."
