UFC champion Stipe Miocic took batting practice with Indians and, of course, homered
There are two things you should know about Stipe Miocic, the Indians' guest during batting practice on Tuesday:
1. He's the UFC heavyweight champion after knocking out Fabricio Werdum on Saturday.
2. He played third base at Cleveland State University, and even drew interest from a handful of MLB teams.
With that in mind, it's no wonder he looked right at home in the cage:

Knocking one out of the park will do that.
