Odell Beckham Jr. took batting practice at Yankee Stadium ... and homered

The Yankees' lineup is filled to the brim with strong talent and plenty of power. Sure, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton can send the ball over the fence, but there may be another guy showing off his strengths from the batter's box in the Bronx -- and his name is Odell Beckham Jr.

You read that right. The three-time Pro Bowler and former NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year can swing some lumber, and he did it in front of the Yankees (!).

OBJ

Prior to the latest installment of the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry game on Friday night, OBJ stopped by to take some hacks during batting practice -- and he went yard: 

@obj doesn't need the short porch. 💪

There he was, just hitting homers and casually talking to Stanton:

That's one way to spend the offseason.
