FYI: Tennis legend Andre Agassi's son plays baseball and has a nasty curveball

The USSSA Summer Championship Series is currently underway and on Monday, the 13U All-Star Classic Showcase took place. It features some of the best youth players from around the country. Although 18 total runs were scored (the National team beat the American squad, 10-8), one notable highlight occurred on the pitcher's mound. Jaden Agassi, son of tennis legends Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf, showed off a pretty decent breaking ball:  

The 13-year-old ended up allowing two runs in two innings of work, but still, that's some Little League filth. Andre, who was on hand to watch his son, has actually discouraged his children from playing tennis and wants to see them pursue other interests.

Who knows? Maybe Jaden will develop into a big league reliever someday. He definitely has a curveball and the athletic genes ... and the potential to grow some wild, closer-worthy hair:
