Watch Odell Beckham Jr. throw a 90-mph fastball and prove in another universe, he's an MLB pitcher

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is perhaps most famous for making absurd, how-the-heck-did-he-do-that? catches on the football field. But there is another universe, one parallel to our own with just a slightly distorted reality, where ODB is an ace fire-throwing pitcher.

In the words of Giants punter Steve Weatherford, "Buddy's throwing straight heaters out here. What is he not good at?"

Beckham took the mound at the St. Jude's charity softball game on Friday and by all accounts, he showed what it takes to be the next great MLB pitching prospect -- his teammate Prince Amukamara reported that Beckham hit 90 mph.

And he can pitch!!! �������� Who throws a softball 90 mph!?? @iam_objxiii @coreyeps catching the heat!!
