J.J. Hardy claims that his best sport is actually table tennis

J.J. Hardy was recently on Intentional Talk, and hosts Kevin Millar and Chris Rose pressed him on what sport he could play professionally if he wasn't playing baseball.

The hosts assumed Hardy was going to answer either golf or tennis, which his parents both played professionally. Instead he threw them a curveball, answering that his best sport was actually table tennis (or ping-pong, as he said it). He even went so far as to say that he might be better at table tennis than he is at baseball.

That's quite the statement. Have you ever seen how good these Olympic table tennis guys are?
